Editor’s note: Our countdown to the start of the fall 2021 NCAA Division I volleyball season continues with this weekly look at the Big Ten, 14 programs in 14 Thursdays.
Taylor Trammell, a 6-foot-2 middle from Lexington, Kentucky, had a tremendous freshman season for Purdue, which advanced to the NCAA Tournament round of eight before losing to eventual champion Kentucky.
After her dogs made a cameo appearance, we interviewed Purdue’s leading blocker (137) who had 124 kills and hit .365. Trammell’s average of 1.63 blocks per set is the best in Boilermakers history.
In case you missed it, the series started last week with our interview with Ohio State’s Emily Londot.
