Coker Finalizes Men’s Volleyball Roster

HARTSVILLE, S.C. – Coker College head volleyball coach Todd Caughlin announced today that James Joseph will play men's volleyball for the Cobras.

Joseph, a 6-foot-4-inch middle blocker, is transferring from the College of Southern Nevada. He is originally from Las Vegas, Nev., where he was a three-sport athlete in volleyball, football and track at Las Vegas High.

"James has a great ability to get off the floor quickly, and in the middle that is a definite asset," said Caughlin. "With the speed of offense we will run, his athleticism will come into play and help him see playing time right away."

James is the son of Raymond Joseph, Roberta Joseph and Cyndi Joseph.
