No no no she mentioned that verbatim to a question:
Q: If you were not an opposite which position would you play?
Drews: *sips tea* I would say, I would love to be an outside. Most people I hear say like setter. I think being a setter is just, it just takes a different breed of human. It's so much responsibility and strategy and I think that would stress me out a little bit. But I don't know, If you've ever tried to pass - if you're not a passer, stand back there and have your friends serve at you and it is so hard. It looks easy, it's not. So I would say I'd still want to be a hitter, I'd love to be an outside, maybe a lefty outside. That would be pretty fun and then, yeah I would love to learn more on how to pass. I commend passers.
Q: As an athlete what are your main goals?
Drews: I think if you would have asked me the first two years of this quad, it would have been to get on the Olympic roster. And I think now, just seeing what I think I'm capable of, and like what I still think I have in me physically and mentally to achieve, I think it's just the pursuit of finding that peak of my game and getting there. I want to play until I peak and just see what that looks like for me and I don't think I'm there yet. And I think if I make that my pursuit, I think things like making an Olympic roster being the Outside for Team USA is definitely achievable. I just need to focus on me and my work - my body of work. And then from there, I think those things can definitely happen. But I think that's the thing - it's just constantly reaching toward my peak of excellence and doing everything I can to get there in the next one.
Ya'll really have me transcribing the whole answer lol.
Not trying to be rude here, but in American volleyball terms, people use the “opposite” and “outside” words interchangeably... I often hear opposites refereed to as outsides in America. I HIGHLY doubt Annie would change her position to outside just as she’s scratching the surface as an opposite.
