We paid tribute to Al in the locker room

US Sports Camps is proud to recognize the Stanford men’s volleyball team after their 30-25, 30-20, 30-18 victory over Penn State on Saturday. Stanford is the first team since 2004 to win the regular season, tournament and NCAA title. The win makes this the Stanford Athletic Department’s 34th consecutive year with a national title.

The team found inspiration from former Assistant Coach and Nike Volleyball Camp co-director, Al Roderigues, who passed away from stomach cancer on March 19th. With the name “AL” sewn into their uniform sleeves, they used his memory as motivation to continue with this exciting journey and make their dreams of a national title a reality. "We paid tribute to Al in the locker room," Coach John Kosty said. "He's helped us, he's been with us. He would hug every single one of them with a huge smile and big rosy cheeks."

At the 2010 NIKE Boys Volleyball Camps, our campers will have a unique opportunity to train under the guidance of this national championship staff and Stanford athletes. All Skills, Elite High School and Performance High School training programs are available.
