Magoffin Named Regional Honoree of AVCA's Grant Burger Media Award

AVCA Logo Springfield, Mass. - July 7, 2010 - Springfield College assistant director of sports communications, Brian Magoffin, has been selected as a recipient of the 2009-10 AVCA Grant Burger Award for NCAA Division III men's volleyball. Magoffin was one of three regional honorees in Division III men's volleyball, as he took home the honor while representing the Eastern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association (EIVA).

His work with men's volleyball over the course of the 2010 campaign helped bring some media attention to the Pride during one of the most significant seasons in program history. Under the direction of the 2010 AVCA Division III Men's National Coach of the Year, Charlie Sullivan, the Pride hoisted the national championships trophy after claiming its sixth Molten Division III Men's Invitational Volleyball National Championship. In addition, the Pride made its first appearance in the semifinals of the Eastern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association (EIVA) Division I Tournament since the institution became affiliated with Division III in 1995-96.

Springfield owned a 20-11 record this season and was paced by the 2010 AVCA Men's Division III National Player of the Year, AJ Nally. In all, Springfield had four student-athletes named to the 2010 AVCA Men's Division III All-America teams, and produced its highest number of All-EIVA East selections in program history (4).

The AVCA Grant Burger Media Award is an honor intended to recognize members of the media who have been involved in the advancement of the sport of volleyball, whether it be through consistent coverage in all mediums (sports information, print, broadcasting and web content), production of volleyball-specific publications or extensive radio and/or television exposure.

It is named in honor of Grant Burger, former Director of Sports Information and Associate Director of the AVCA (1988-92), whose hard work, innovative mind, knowledge and enthusiasm took the areas of media relations and publications at the AVCA to a higher level and increased awareness of the sport of volleyball nationwide.
