“It felt like the place God wanted me to be,” said Creamer, who will major in integrated health science. “I want to play after college and they had sand volleyball, which is my best bet to do that.”
“I’m totally excited and she has worked hard,” Landmark volleyball coach Sheri Creamer said. “She deserves this day. She has been selfless in everything else and God has blessed her. The beach-sand volleyball was really the kicker because she knew she wanted to play that hopefully after college.”
Already a deadly outside hitter, Tiffany Creamer plans to play sand volleyball with a club team this summer so she can become more accustomed with the 2-on-2 game.
“I’m really excited to be able to face harder teams and up my game to their level,” Creamer said.
“Court volleyball has sort of a system,” Sheri Creamer said. “Sand volleyball is more thinking through things. It’s kind of a chess game and having just two people on the sand makes it a challenge anyway.”
Creamer helped the Lady War Eagles defeat their final 15 opponents to end an eight-year title drought.
“I’m definitely going to miss having my mom as a coach, my teammates, I love them to death, and the Christian aspect of Landmark,” Creamer said.
On the same day, former Landmark football players John Paul Reed and Greg Pulliam signed scholarships as well.
Reed, an offensive lineman, decided to play for Johns Hopkins.
“I’d like to earn a starting position and help the program become a better program,” said Reed, who will major in biomolecular and chemical engineering. “I want the school at the end of four years to say ‘we’re glad we got John Paul.’”
“John Paul is a great offensive lineman,” Landmark football coach Wayne Brantley said. “He could’ve probably played at a higher level but he wanted the top education he could get and he felt like Johns Hopkins provided that.”
Pulliam decided to continue playing linebacker at Samford, where he will also major in exercise science.
“Playing college football on Saturday is something I’ve dreamed of since I was a little kid and it will be amazing to watch that dream come true,” he said.
“Greg is a great leader and is very spiritually mature,” Brantley said.
