Jack Stephens was an avid supporter of the PHS girls volleyball program for more than 15 years. Despite the distance and time involved, Stephens attended almost all of the team's tournaments, most of which are located outside of the country and last all day long. Before each game, Stephens wrote the team a letter, which he addressed to the "Volleydolls." These letters of support encouraged the team after a loss or cheered them on for another win. Booster Susan Armstrong said, "Whichever the case, he always knew what to say to bring the best out in the girls and help them mentally prepare for their upcoming games." In 2007, the girls had shirts made for the state tournament that said "This one's for Jack!" on the back. They all wanted to dominate the tournament in Stephens' honor, and his support was as strong as any coach or parent as the girls went on to win the state title. Armstrong said, "His devotion and love for these girls pushed them to strive for the very best when no one else thought they could do it. He never gave up on them!"
