    Originally from Gdynia, Poland, Poziomski left his home to come to America to play tennis at the collegiate level. After starting out at Northern Illinois and taking a year off from tennis to follow the coach that recruited him, Poziomski finished out his collegiate career at Purdue University.

Purdue ended that season ranked in the Top 30 nationally. As a senior, Poziomski finishd 8-10 in singles - undefeated at the No. 1 and No. 2 positions - and 17-8 in doubles. Poziomski also had a hand in coaching as a fifth-year senior at Purdue, which has helped him now as SIU's assistant coach.

    Poziomski studied management and finance at Purdue and is currently working toward his MBA at SIU.
