GIRARD OH- A lot of attention gets put on Girard’s weapons on the outside. Rightfully so, Lauren Pallone, and Bree Latell are a tough two headed monster. But don’t forget about the shining star in the middle of the net. Girard’s middle blocker Esra Dede has jumped in to the fold this year and added a new tool to Girard’s offense.  This is the first year Esra has been on the floor without her sister Seyhan and its let her fly on her own.  In the second matchup against Lakeview this season Dede came up huge slowing down the Bulldogs powerful middles.

No one shows great work ethic like Esra.  This is what makes her such a good leader. Her drive and passion to constantly get better is topped by none.  She is sometimes even her own biggest critic. She always pushes herself in practice and games. The younger players see that, and they are able to copy it. Her footprints will live on in the Girard program for years to come.

YSN’s Anthony Hartwig was able to catch up with Esra this week to talk about her senior season. They talk about younger players she is mentoring, how competitive she is, and so much more. Have a great day and check out the latest Girard Volleyball Player Profile only on YSN!
