He served as a volunteer assistant coach, which involved assisting with on-court training and coordinating team travel. He also was a camp director for the KU summer camps. During that time, Georgalas was the director of the Jayhawk Juniors Volleyball Club, which offered clinics for Lawrence-area youth, and coached for the Lawrence Juniors Volleyball Club.
A native of Chicago, Ill., Georgalas began playing his senior year of high school and earned a starting position at middle hitter halfway through the season. His state-ranked Buffalo Grove High School team finished 30-7 overall and fourth in the state while Georgalas was voted the Most Improved Player.
He went onto to start for the KU men's club volleyball team for two seasons and helped the Jayhawks qualify for the NIRSA National Tournament in the spring 2010.
