Picking up volleyball in my senior year in high school, I have since competed and/or coached for most of my life.
I have competed in both indoor and beach volleyball at "B," "A," "AA," "Open," Collegiate, and Seniors levels.
I have been a player/coach on many levels and served as a community high school volleyball coach for seven years.
In 1967, while at Cal Poly, I became the first male nationally rated official for women's collegiate volleyball."
My four most memorable volleyball moments:
1. While in junior college, holding the court at Laguna's Hidden Cove by winning with 8/9-year-old doubles partner, Dusty Dvorak,
who went on to become an international star and Olympic Gold Medal winning setter for the US men's volleyball team in 1984.
2. Playing with good friend, Rose Rahn, the first, and only known mixed doubles team to play in the Sorrento Beach Open Tournament.
3. Without a coach and financing, taking a club team from Cal Poly to place forth in the college division at the Far Western Regional Championships at
Alameda Naval Base in Oakland, loosing only two matches... to perennial powerhouses UCLA, and Santa Monica City College, who won the tournament.
4. Coaching the team that was the smallest 3A team to earn a berth at the Oregon State Volleyball Championships in 1993."
