BRONXVILE, N.Y. – Jordan Varee is the second of three inductees to be showcased on EIVAVolleyball.com as we look back at the careers of all three of the 2016 Eastern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association (EIVA) Hall of Fame members.
Varee played for Saint Francis (Pa.) from 2007-2010 and was a four-time All-EIVA selection as he was a member of the Second Team in 2007 and 2008 and a First Team selection in 2009 and 2010. Jordan would be honored by the AVCA as an All-America Second Team selection in 2009.
In his time in Loretto, Varee amassed 1,864 kills and 145 service aces to top the record books for the Red Flash. He is also currently second with 661 digs and fourth with a career .291 hitting percentage.
Following his collegiate career, Jordan played professionally in Sweden and in 2011 joined the USA Men's Volleyball winter training group where he was a part of USA Volleyball's Developmental Team for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
He was an assistant coach on the Penn State-Behrend men's and women's volleyball staff and in the fall of 2014, Varee returned to Saint Francis to become an assistant coach for the men's volleyball program under Mike Rumbaugh.
"I'm very excited for Jordan," stated Rumbaugh. "Not only as a player for Saint Francis, but also as an advocate for volleyball. He has continued to give back to the sport by coaching high school, junior Olympics and at the collegiate level."
