The Dick Powers Volleyball Story - 1971 - Present

     In the fall of 1971, "Powers" saw his first glimpse of Division 1 Politics in baseball at Ball State University and decided, "What the heck." "I have a tuition scholarship for academics, don't have to play ball for it, and want to do something at Ball State other than go to class.
     Powers knew of Ball State Men's Volleyball due to conversations with former players, Larry Duncan and Mick Haley.
     In October of 1971, Dick Powers, knocked on Dr. Shondell's office door in "Men's Gymnasium'" in the Men's Athletic Department (Pre Title IX) and asked the man sitting at the desk if he was Dr. Shondell.  During this initial meeting with Dr. Shondell, Dick Powers became *"Powers."
     When Dr. Shondell asked Dick Powers in their first meeting if he knew how to play volleyball and had he ever played, "Powers" answered, "No."
     *"Powers" as Dr. Shondell still calls him (none of the Ball State Men's Volleyball Program's members have first names - to this day) he was told what he could expect, and then was provided the opportunities to qualify for learning how to play volleyball and how to play on a volleyball team beginning Winter Quarter 1971-72.
     In early December of 1971, “Powers” had enrolled in a P. E. course, Volleyball. He thought that might be a good idea - since he didn’t really know how to play volleyball and with 65 guys trying out for the Men’s Volleyball Freshman Team and only 18 to be kept four months later, Powers thought it might help him “make it.” 
     Within the first month of the P. E. class, Instructor Freeman made Powers a deal that - if "Powers" would teach the class, Instructor Freeman would give "Powers" an "A" in the class. 
     "Powers" got the "A," went on to learn a lot about teaching, learning, art, music, math, nutrition, physiology, language arts, volleyball, confidence and success during his following years at Ball State and even got to study Open Education in England during his junior year.  
   In March of 1972 as the Freshman Ball State Men’s Volleyball Team walked into the old St. John's Arena at Ohio State with a starting Primary Passer and Left Side Attacker named "Powers" – he thought this volleyball thing was "OK." 

And, the rest is history - Please see below.
