Deitre Collins-Parker, a two-time national collegiate player of the year and AVCA Hall of Fame member, is the head volleyball coach at San Diego State. In 2012, she led her Aztec squad to a 23-8 mark and a 13-3 ledger in the Mountain West as the Aztecs claimed their first-ever Mountain West title. She arrived at San Diego State after five seasons as head coach at Cornell, where she led the Big Red to three Ivy League titles and two NCAA tournament appearances. What does it take to win championships? What does it mean to be a winner in life? How does a relationship with God matter?
At Hawaii, Coach Collins-Parker was a two-time Broderick Award honoree as national player of the year (1983, 1984) after leading the Rainbow Wahine to consecutive national titles and a 110-5 record in her final three seasons. She was twice named to the NCAA all-tournament team and still holds the record for solo blocks in one NCAA tournament (15 in 1982). Coach Collins-Parker is married to Dale Parker.
