A native of the Midwest, Erin Gray has earned honors in indoor volleyball as one of the elite indoor athletes in the country as Big Ten Freshman of the Year and First Team All-American. After a professional run in indoor volleyball that began in 1999 with the Unite States Pro Volleyball League, Erin discovered beach volleyball and competed locally until joining a pro tour in June 2008. Along the way, family turned out to be central in Erin’s life as she became a mother four times. That didn’t stop her from continuing to climb the national rankings and winning tournaments around the country. In 2009 she was named EVP Player of the Year and in 2010 she was named one of the top 20 beach volleyball athletes in the nation. Erin is excited to continue dominating beach volleyball as she competes with the 2011 EVP Tour.
