Savannah and her parents, Ricky and Christy, and her brother Thomas with her for the college signing. They all attended Southern Union.

Newnan senior Savannah Collins signed on the dotted line to continue her volleyball career for the Southern Union Lady Bison in Wadley, Alabama.

The Lady Bison are under the leadership of Head Coach Ametrice Jackson and compete in the ACCC (Alabama Community College Conference).

The academic institution is special to the Collins family as Savannah’s parents, Ricky and Christy, and brother, Thomas all attended. Savannah took the opportunity to thank all the coaches who have believed in her throughout her volleyball journey.

On the court, she plays defensive specialist and middle back. She began with the county program and advanced through middle school and high school, and played club ball through the Upward program.
