Parkland school district is known state-wide for its athletic prowess, especially on the volleyball court.
A large number of highly talented athletes have stepped into the spotlight as some of the area's best boys volleyball players. John Siggins, a three-sport athlete (volleyball, basketball and football), is the latest Trojan to leave his mark.
Siggins was a rare four-year starter and, this year, he helped lead the team to its first district title since 2016.
The middle hitter earned tremendous honors this spring, which included the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference Player of the Year, as well as Parkland's Outstanding Senior Athlete.
Add the Morning Call Boys Volleyball Player of the year to those accomplishments.
"John was an amazing student-athlete who we were so fortunate to have as part of our program," Parkland coach Scott Trumbauer said. "He was a very well-rounded athlete who was always up for a competition. He's been starting for us since he was a freshman and really improved every year."
Siggins registered 179 kills, a 0.394 hitting percentage, and 57 blocks this season. In his career, he finished with 390 kills and 102 blocks.
"John played basketball and football so his time on the volleyball court was limited to our seasons, but he was always looking for ways to improve," Trumbauer said. "He was named Parkland's Outstanding Senior Athlete which really showed how great of an athlete he is."
Next up for Siggins is attending East Stroudsburg University where he will play football.
