USA NT 2012

Well, I noticed we don't have a separate thread for the defending Olympic champions, so here you go! The reason to open it was not to announce rosters, you can do that if you want, but to show you a video of a guy that I followed throughout the Junior WCH in Brazil. Taylor Sander is a starting OH in the US Junior NT, maybe even their captain (???) if I remember correctly, impressed me a lot last year both in attack and defence. I wish him all the best and hope he will get a chance to go abroad and develop even more as I am sure he will be part of Team USA for the next Olympics in Rio 2016. He was recruited by Bringham Young University, otherwise known as BYU.

Oh, I remember this guy, Taylor. A very impressive player in the Junior WCh last year. He made great contribution to the 4th place of USA!

What an exciting player to watch! :thumbup: I've read that he is 20 years old. Isn't it a perfect age to at least get the chance, to show up and gain some experience being in a wide roster in senior team? I feel for a very long time that USA NT need a fresh young blood. Taylor could be like a boost of energy for this team.
BTW. How tall is he?

Ask Knipe, why he is so addicted to his old-man club. :lol:
He's No. 22 in the WL this year, let's see if he could get a chance to be included in the 14-roster of one tournament.

BYU has its own TV network called amazingly BYUTV, which is shown on numerous cable systems and the men's volleyball home games are shown on it.

Sander, nicknamed "Sandman", is a very good attacking player and great with serves as well. He is still a young, so don't worry about him this year not being on the World League roster.

Technically, the Men's roster isn't due until July 7. ;) But the players have been informed....

I can tell you this much, David Mckienzie is going to London.

I'm surprised especially due to lack of Millar, Hansen & Patak, Riley Salmon hasn't been part of main team lately.

I haven't seen Dave Mckienzie much but from the little I know he is a pretty good server which is the only element Patak is great at :D So Knipe picking him over Patak can't be a surprise
Don't you worry, don't you worry child. See heaven's got a plan for you

Good point :thumbup: Patak was mostly substitute only in serve area.

And you are right ;)

Millar is an alternate.


Here are some unofficial quotes from Ryan Millar.

I'm extremely disappointed. Hoping for just 1 more (Olympics) but I guess my best wasn't good enough
I'm as surprised as you probably are...I'll be ready if someone goes down

Just wondering. Are there any african-americans who are playing volleyball professionally? I think delano thomas played in europe, but i don't know anyone else.
Is it all right to cOnclude that volleyball is not popular among african-american men?

There are too much sports there more popular than volleyball. You have basketball on the first place, then american football, baseball, athletics. Even soccer is more popular. So it is difficult for some afro-american to deceive himself and go for volleyball.

As a matter of fact a lot of them practice volleyball but after that choose another sport. Like Vince Carter or Wilt Chamberlain.

I do think USA is one of the most promising nations when it comes to volleyball for the next quadrennial. The list of rising talents is huge. One of them is very familiar of the spanish people, Jeff Menzel. ;)

gotcha. but it just makes me wonder why they don't go for volleyball. if we look at the women's squad, half of them are african-american (i'm not sure about haneef, though), but the men's squad is composed almost entirely of "white" men.
