STAUNTON, Va. (WHSV) -- As a setter on the R.E. Lee volleyball team, it's Jasmine Johnson's job set up her teammates for success.

"She's like the quarterback on my team. She runs the whole offense. She's a great little assistant coach for me. Cause I don't have to be on the court. It's nice to have her on the court to be able to do all that," said Jan Williams, Jasmine's volleyball coach.

"I love being the leader on the court. I'm just in charge and all the weight is put on me. I don't know. I just feel confident about that," said Jasmine.

She has reasons to be confident; Jasmine's an All-State setter and she not only plays, but excels in three sports for R.E. Lee.

"I'm very competitive. I'm very confident in what I do, and so I always set myself these types of goals to try to reach them at the end of the season," said Jasmine.

And by season, she means seasons. Jasmine's a three-sport star for the Lee ladies, a team MVP in volleyball, basketball and softball.

The accolades don't stop there. When it comes to the classroom, Jasmine sports a 3.9 GPA.

"As a teacher, the Jasmines are the ones you enjoy having all the time. She has a positive attitude, she works hard, she turns in all assignments. She is what makes me want to come to school in the morning," said Heather Davis, Jasmine's chemistry teacher.

"Well I've already basically committed to to EMU to play volleyball, and I hope to study nursing and become a pediatrician," said Jasmine.
