I had three children (2 girls and 1 boy) that had the distinct pleasure to play volleyball for Coach Collins. In those 8 combined years they went to NCS each year. However, the success they enjoyed and the improvement in their volleyball skills were secondary to the valuable lessons they learned from Dusty regarding hard work and commitment to team. The impact he had on their lives was significant and each had him hand them their HS diplomas. As parents we were grateful that our kids were a part of his program. Congratulations Coach on a very well deserved award!

Congratulations Coach Collins! There isn't anyone more deserved. You have not been just a winning coach. You have been an exemplary example to your players, students, their parents and the entire Foothill community. There is no finer than Coach Collins. I have no idea what additional qualifications you would ever need in your repertoire to be considered eligible for the AD position. You are an inspiration!
