AAU Volleyball Club in Grand Rapids, Michigan

David Rawles


David Rawles has over twenty years of coaching experience with most of those years coaching college volleyball at its highest level.  Rawles has spent the last five collegiate seasons with Grand Rapids Community College. David spent two seasons with the University of Notre Dame competing in the Big East and ACC.  After coaching the 2006 season in the Big Ten with Michigan State University, Rawles took over a struggling program in the NAIA.  After five seasons of being the head coach at Aquinas College he had the program competing and ranked in the top 25 in the country.


In 2008, Rawles started Saints Volleyball Club from the ground up. Along with helping student athletes become better volleyball players on and off the court, the club has helped student athletes move to the next level of play. Rawles has had athletes continue to play volleyball in the NAIA as well as the highest level, D1 NCAA.


As a player, like most males that get involved in the sport of volleyball, Rawles picked up the game on the beach.  He competed on the EVP/MPVA from 2000-2008.  He was Rookie of the Year finalist in 2000 and received Most Improved Player in 2001.  Rawles was one of the best defensive players on the tour and found himself ranked as high as number three on the tour in 2006.

Ryan Campbell

On July 10, 2019, Ryan Campbell was named the new Aquinas women's volleyball head coach. The longtime head coach at Cornerstone, Campbell becomes the 10th Saints head coach in program history.
  
After spending the previous 10 seasons as Cornerstone's head coach, Campbell was announced as the top assistant coach at NCAA Division II perennial power Ferris State in early April before accepting the head coaching role at Aquinas. Campbell replaces Rick Schroeder, who posted three successful seasons at the helm of the Saints program before announcing his resignation in early May.
 
"Obviously Ryan has tremendous experience within the WHAC and knows how to recruit at a high level in the conference and nationally, as well," said Davidson. "He has a proven history of building successful teams and his commitment to building relationships with his players stood out in the process. The energy, enthusiasm, and passion he has for the sport were evident right away. Ryan will be able to hit the ground running and help us continue the recent success of the program."
 
The winningest coach in Cornerstone volleyball history, Campbell put together a 264-117 overall record with the Golden Eagles and won three WHAC championships; CU captured the 2016 regular season conference title before winning the WHAC tournament championship in 2017 and 2018. In all three of those seasons, Cornerstone advanced to the NAIA National Tournament, marking three of the four national tournament appearances in program history.
 
Since Campbell took over the CU program in 2009, the Golden Eagles averaged 26 wins per season. During one stretch in his tenure, Cornerstone won 35 consecutive home matches and achieved an NAIA top-10 national ranking. Campbell coached five NAIA All-Americans at CU, along with the WHAC Player of the Year, Setter of the Year, and Libero of the Year at some point during his coaching career.
 
"I am excited to be the new head women's volleyball coach at Aquinas," Campbell said. "Rick Schroeder did an excellent job recruiting and I look forward to continuing his success. I want to thank Nick Davidson for giving me the opportunity to continue to coach in the WHAC. My family and I are grateful to stay in Grand Rapids and be part of the Aquinas family."
 
In 2016, he was named the WHAC Coach of the Year, as well as the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Mideast Region Coach of the Year. Campbell was selected as an AVCA "30 Under 30" award recipient in 2009 and also earned the WHAC Champions of Character award winner. In total, Campbell - a CU alum - spent 15 seasons at Cornerstone, including five seasons as an assistant coach before taking over as the Golden Eagles head coach.
