Coach LaShawn Thomas, in his first year at the coaching helm of the BHCC Women’s Volleyball program, attended Norwich University as a member of the Corps of Cadets, studying Business Management and Finance. A multi-sport athlete, Coach Thomas played one year of football and four years of baseball, while playing roles as: the Women’s Volleyball Manager, Founder and President of the Men’s Volleyball Club, and Secretary of the Rotaract (Service Leadership) Club.
Originally from San Antonio, Texas –an area of the country with very high levels of play; Coach Thomas acquired most of his volleyball skills there. Coach Thomas’ goal is to develop a strong program that can represent an area where volleyball isn’t very active and develop the program to compete at a high level.
LaShawn stays active in volleyball himself, playing in several leagues in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire on a weekly basis.
While LaShawn’ s passion for volleyball is very strong, he also likes to also go to the gym, spend time with family and friends, and go to the beach.
