For the last eight years, Nanabah Allison-Brewer has used the Native American Volleyball Academy as a way to help steer top prospects her way.

The former Farmington High and University of New Mexico standout founded NAVA in 2007 as a way to help young Native Americans improve their volleyball skills as well as influence them to start thinking about college.

Through NAVA, Allison-Brewer has created a pipeline of potential prospects as she enters her fourth year as coach at Haskell Indian Nations University in Lawrence, Kan.

"This is a big place for me to recruit because I need to find those future athletes and this camp has been amazing," Allison-Brewer said on Saturday. "There were some solid athletes that came to this camp this year that I am excited about. I definitely want to invite them and start having a conversation. I would love for them to play for me."
