About Garrett Popplestone:
Garrett is a great leader and has tremendous athletic abilities that allow him to be the dynamic quick footed setter that he is. He has excellent vision of the game and provides consistent options to his hitters. Garrett’s ability to be deceptive and his knack to run a fast dynamic offense make it difficult for blockers to read and close up blocks. Garrett has an excellent ability of setting the middle in trouble situations, especially off a 2 pass which makes him a dangerous element within the game.  Garrett always maintains a "never die" attitude on defense and is very good at recovering trouble balls for his hitters. He has a very tactical spin serve and keeps passers guessing with a short roll. He also has an effective float serve to throw passers off and enables his team to produce a run of points. Garrett displays a remarkably hard work ethic and his fiery character generates energy to his club, which has enabled him to be a leader on many of the teams he has played on. Garrett is a great team player and collaborates very well with others on tactical and technical aspects of the game.

Garrett has completed his studies (2014-2015) at Brandon University and graduated with a Bachelor of Education degree. Garrett is currently training at Team Canada’s Full Time Training Centre in Gatineau Quebec, Canada. Garrett is extremely dedicated to his career as a professional and is always motivated to learn more about the game.
