The Start of The Story:
Two unique opportunities came to Coach Powers'  attention during winter quarter as a freshman Elementary Education Major at Ball State University in late 1971; *Learning the sport under the guidance and direction of Dr. Donald Shondell and within a month - **being asked to teach a collegiate volleyball P. E. class.

*Correct and performance based footwork, techniques, and knowledge of all volleyball positions and team expectations/responsibilities were the core of what Coach Powers was learning as a first time player - and teacher. **And from Instructor Freeman, Coach Powers did get the promised "A" in the P.E. class in which he was enrolled.
