Player bio: Warren is still the only person in LImestone’s program history to win the ConfCarolinas Player of the Year. Warned earned the award during his first season back in college volleyball following an eight-year break as he finished in the conference’s top five with both a 3.07 kills per game average and a 1.15 blocks per game average. The transfer from Newman University had double-digit kills in 14 matches that season, including a combined 25 kills on a .380 attack percentage in two victories against Sacred Heart. Despite missing part of the 2013 season, Warren still ended his senior season among the team leaders with a 2.36 kills per game average..
