McKissock’s first word was “ball” and not much has changed since. In her varsity career at First Academy, which began in eighth grade, McKissock accumulated 1,912 digs, and despite standing just 5-7, she also made an impact as an attacker her junior and season years, finishing this fall’s slate with 288 kills.


In a decorated club career, McKissock helped her OTVA and Top Select squads win AAU National Championships in the 12 Classic, 13 Club, 14 Open, 15 Open, 16 Open, and 17 Open divisions. She was named AAU All-America in 2017, 2018, and 2019, and her 14s year (2016) she also won a USAV junior national championship.

“Elli McKissock is a natural athlete that coaches long to work with,” Dan Hedger, McKissock’s head coach at The First Academy, said. “She has incredible range as a libero and her ability to read the hitter and reaction time are what set her apart from everyone else.” 


McKissock’s older sister Matti plays for Georgia Tech where she is in her second season as the team’s starting setter. Elli will graduate early from high school and begin college, and training with her Florida team, in January.

“Her footspeed, her ball control, her volleyball IQ, this is a special one,” Florida head coach Mary Wise said.
