The "Cobra Spotlight" is a weekly highlight of a student-athlete at Coker College. Each week we take a different athlete from a different sport and display some facets to get more familiar with them. This week we take a look at Amanda Harris, a member of the women's volleyball team.

Why did you choose Coker? Mainly because of volleyball. The team is so close, and I come from a school of 250 kids so I liked the small campus as well.
