S&F: Gamecock family teams up to raise awareness for Amy Collinsworth
March 31, 2015

Amy Collinsworth was the epitome of a true student-athlete during her time at the University of South Carolina.

In fact, Collinsworth's efforts on the court for the Gamecock volleyball program still rank high in the record book as her 475 total career blocks from 1990-93 are still third in program history.

The 6-foot middle blocker from Fort Wayne, Ind. was just as strong in the classroom where she was an Honors College student who was also a three-time SEC Academic Honor Roll member.

After graduating from South Carolina in 1995, Collinsworth moved on to Duke where she picked up her Ph.D in Biomedical Engineering. From there, she would go on to work for Duke for 12 years.

Collinsworth was doing exactly what she had envisioned up to this point in time in her life.

"I played volleyball in college, went to grad school and earned my Ph.D. I took a great job at Duke and meanwhile still traveled all over the world to scuba dive," Collinsworth said.
