Traveling through the galaxy and fighting crime, Rocket and Groot are the true partners in crime of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Senior Michael Pham and junior Caden Perkins represent Rocket and Groot. Instead of stopping trouble out in the galaxy they are stopping the other team on the volleyball court.
Pham standing at the height of 5’7”, uses his height to his advantage on the court. Pham is one of the captains on the team, like Rocket, who is the captain of the starship Rack ‘n’ Ruin. As the setter Pham is the backbone of the team and the one making decisions about the offense on the court. Rocket, being a small raccoon, is able to move fast and Pham being, 5’7,” is a setter, one of the faster players on the court.
Perkins one of the tallest players on the team standing at 6’8”. Like Groot, Perkins uses his height to his advantage to intimidate the opponents. During games, Perkins height makes a huge difference in defense with blocking along with being able to slam the ball easily.
Pham and Perkins have a similar relationship to Rocket and Groot. In volleyball relationships are important on and off the court; the better the relationship, the better plays on the court. In Pham and Perkins’s relationship, Perkins view of their relationship is “Feed[ing] off of each other’s energy and always pick one another up.” Pham views their relationship as “built on the strong love we have with each other.”
