It’s not uncommon to find ties to elite athletics in the family trees of top volleyball players, and Camille “Birdie” Hendrickson has athletes on all sides of the family. Her mother Laura (nee Dixon) played volleyball at Florida, father Michael was a professional triathlete, and grandfather Brien ran track at Nebraska. Her older sister Hanna sets for Division II Western Colorado, and younger brother Landon, a member of the Class of 2021 will almost certainly run distance in college.

Position: Outside Hitter/Setter

Height: 6-2

Hometown: Rogersville, Missouri

High School: Logan-Rogersville High School

Club: Springfield Juniors

College Commitment: Florida


Birdie, the 2018-19 Missouri Gatorade state player of the year and a First Team Under Armour All-American, not only plays volleyball, but she’s also all-state in the high jump and 4x400 relay for Logan-Rogersville High School.

Watch Birdie Hendrickson in action at the 2019 Under Armour High School All-America Match, streaming live right here on FloVolleyball, Dec. 31 at 7 PM ET.

Although committed to Florida for college (yes, following in her mother’s footsteps) as a setter, Hendrickson played outside hitter for her high school team, finishing her senior season with a team-high 483 kills, hitting .390, and 352 digs.

“I love hitting, I had the glory days here in high school, but in college definitely setting and I’m excited to get in the gym and just focus on one thing,” Hendrickson said.

“Birdie’s versatility as a player makes her extremely unique,” said two-time Olympic volleyball player Lori Endicott-Vandersnick, who coaches at Springfield Juniors where Hendrickson plays club. “For her high school team she plays left side, passes all six rotations and is a key defender at middle back. In club, she sets and plays right side. Her athleticism allows her to play in any position and play them all at a high level. This versatility and athleticism is what will help her have an immediate impact as a Florida Gator.”

“If you look over the years at some of the best setters that have come through our program, one of the common denominators was the great ones were so athletic,” Florida head coach Mary Wise said. “That is certainly Birdie. (Look at) what she has done not only in volleyball but in track and field. We think when she finally has that opportunity to concentrate just on volleyball, there’s no telling what her ceiling is. She’s going to be one of the most athletic setters we’ve ever had come in the program.”

Ranked No. 12 in the Class of 2020 by PrepVolleyball, Hendrickson made the training roster for the junior national team over the summer and then led Logan-Rogersville to a runner-up finish in the Missouri Class 3 state championship after winning the title in 2018.
