CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Only one day until the Canes host Florida State in an important ACC match at the Knight Sports Complex. In the mean time, continue to meet the members of the 2012 University of Miami volleyball team. Today, go Down the Line with sophomore Blair Fuentez.
Name: Blair Fuentez

I committed to Miami over other schools because I wanted to attend a school with both a good academic and volleyball program.
To me, Miami volleyball is a group of people working together to achieve the same goals.
The best part of being on the team is being able to travel and compete on different campuses to represent Miami.
If I had to describe the team in one word it would be crazy.
