There may be several words to describe Roxanne McVey, but most of her coaches and teammates agree on one specific thing.
She's not selfish.
The Mississippi State sophomore libero had one of the better freshman campaigns in school history. McVey was the one of the very few bright spots on last year's squad.
Bulldog head volleyball coach Jenny Hazelwood has not seen it go to her head, rather it's pushed her to do the best. Not for her, but for her team.
"One of the things in any team that's going to make their teammates look up to them is how hard are they working on a daily basis," Hazelwood said. "Roxanne, from day one, has walked in and said 'I'm going to work has hard as I can.' She really does it from a place of being the best teammate she can be. She's not a selfish player. She really does want to be great so she can help her team."
