Dickens Otim was winning the Volleyball Most Valuable player for the third time in four years, and sounded a little disappointed that he doesn’t hold all the four gongs of the past four seasons.

Otim beat KAVC’s Daudi Okello, and Nemostars George Aporu to lift 2014 award despite losing the league finals 3-2 to the former.

Yes, would have loved to win all the four awards, but it didn’t come to pass. Maybe 2013 wasn’t my year since Nkumba didn’t make it to the finals, it was always going to be hard,

Otim first won the award in 2011 after guiding Nkumba to their maiden and only league title.

He won the award again in 2012 despite losing the league title to Nermostars, and it was Aporu who claimed the 2013, Otim claimed it again this year.

When I look at 2014 it was tough, started it with transfer saga, then injuries came in, I only got better as the season progressed. It was disappointing that we didn’t win the league but I played my best volleyball of 2014 in the finals, though I also had my low moments. It wasn’t by mistake that I was nominated six times and me walking away with three proves that I was exceptional in away,
