Our Athlete of the Week this week is O’Niece Roberts. O’Neice is a senior at Allatoona and has played on the varsity volleyball team for the past two years. “O’Neice has accepted playing a different role this year”, says Coach Joe Soley. “She plays hard and is a great leader on and off the court.”

O’Neice says she tries “to encourage the team to put their all on the court no matter who we are playing.” O’Neice has been playing volleyball since the third grade and plans to go to college to play volleyball, participate in track and field, and major in forensic science and behavioral analysis. O’Neice’s advice to younger players is, “Don’t plan to win, just plan to play. Have fun with every point regardless of what the score is or whoever is on the court. Every ball is your ball and communication is key to everything.”
