The April Ross family of Newport Beach, California passionately support their star of Beach Volleyball looking to unseat fellow beach volleyball players Misty May-Treanor and Keri Walsh in the London 2012 Olympics. Ironically, April Ross attended the same high school as Misty May, but a number of years later. April marches on with the love of her late mother, Margie Ross, and very supportive father, Dr. Glenn A. Ross. April Ross had the talent to play, but her father, Glenn Ross, urged he to try out for the team in Middle School.

The volleyball prodigy blossomed through many years in Junior Olympics and Club volleyball earning her the prestigious award of Gatorades Player of the Year, shared by professional sports greats like Peyton Manning and Emmitt Smith of the NFL as well as NBA basketball star, Kobe Bryant.
