The ball is popped into the air
Like a tracker, I am there
To set the hitter for the kill
No spin on the ball until
The thunderous swing destroys the ball
Shakes the earth and shocks them all
The people at the net so tall
The entire crowd in awe
A perfect pass is a setter’s wish
However, if defense can’t dish
Out a pass to target then
We’re in serve receive again
To touch the ball every play
No matter how it comes your way
Get over a shank
Don’t bother to fuss
Your hands are key to your team’s side-out
To move with speed, agile and smooth
Across the gym floor so we dove
To pass the ball into the air
And give the other team a scare
Don’t do your best, do even better
I am Luis, I’m a setter.
