Amber Weber joined both the women's volleyball and beach volleyball staffs in the fall of 2020 as a graduate assistant coach.
Weber was a three-year standout for the Marshall University women's volleyball team as a libero/defensive specialist, netting two Conference USA Defensive Player of the Week honors. She played in all 87 matches for the Herd, missing only four sets in the span (all during her sophomore year). The Ocala, Florida native owns the Marshall career digs per set record (4.05), as well as the top-two season marks (5.05 in 2018 and 4.93 in 2019). Weber's 545 digs in 2018 are the second-most in Marshall history, while the 498 digs in 2019 are sixth-best. Her junior year number was good enough to become just the fifth player for the Herd to reach the 500-dig plateau. Weber's combined 1,043 digs over her last two seasons are the second-most in Herd history for a two-year stretch.
In total, Weber is credited with 1,398 digs in her collegiate career, while her 1,272 digs at Marshall rank her seventh all-time in MU history. She finished her career with 67 double-digit dig matches with 25 reaching 20 and five totaling at least 30. Her career ended with 31-straight matches registering double-digit digs, including her entire senior campaign. More athletic accolades for Weber include: two years spent as team captain, three all-tournament team honors (Bowling Green, Hampton Inn Rambler Challenge, and Morehead State Invitational), and the team's Hard Hat Award in 2018. Academically, she was named to the Dean's List and the President's List, while also participating in the Student Athlete Advisory Committee, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Pre-Dental Club, and the Student Nurse Association.
Prior to Marshall, Weber spent her freshman season at the University of South Florida, appearing in 23 matches. She recorded 126 digs as a defensive specialist, including four double-digit matches with the Bulls. Weber was named to the American Athletic Conference Honor Roll and was a member of the USF SAAC in her lone year.
At the high school level, she aided Trinity Catholic in becoming the 4A state runner-up by contributing 444 digs during her senior campaign.
Weber also excelled as a member of the Ocala Power United Club (led by Morris) and qualified for the USAV national tournament three times. She also coached at the Florida club and at the River Cities Volleyball Club in West Virginia.
Outside of athletics, Weber interned at CrossFit Huntington this spring and collected clinical nursing experience at the Cabell Huntington Hospital during her junior year. She has volunteered at numerous hospitals, elementary schools, and Habitat for Humanity.
Weber graduated from Marshall University in the Spring of 2020 with a health science degree and was named to the C-USA Commissioner's Honor Roll all three years with the Herd. Weber holds certifications in CDC ethical decision-making in public health, CDC data cleaning, and AMA digital marketing.
