Carlyn Esslinger, a native of Tampa, Fla. was a two-time All-MAC First-Team selection who capped her stellar career by earning the league's Player-of-the-Year award in 1995. She led the team in both kills and hitting percentage during each of her final three years with the Falcons, and finished her career as BGSU's all-time leader in attack attempts (3,821), while ranking second in kills (1,462) and fifth in blocks (367).

Esslinger still holds the school record for career attack attempts, and she currently ranks second in kills, eighth in both digs and blocks and 10th in hitting percentage. Esslinger, just the fifth player in school history to reach 1,000 kills and 1,000 digs in a career, was a freshman on the 1992 Falcon squad that won the MAC and posted a runner-up finish in the National Invitational Volleyball Championship (NIVC).

She was inducted to the BGSU Athletic Hall of Fame in 2006.
