Wednesday was tough...
The Stanford decision to cut 11 sports including Stanford Men's Volleyball was shocking to say the least.
Going through this pandemic, we knew that college athletic departments around the country were feeling the hurt and that there was a chance that Olympic sports could see the axe.
Never in a million years did I think that Stanford would be a domino to fall, yet here we are. This decision will reverberate throughout the NCAA as schools grapple with the reality of this pandemic and its effects on the bottom line.
7 years ago University of the Pacific cut my men’s volleyball program and Stanford took me in as a volunteer coach. I have loved each and every moment working with the incredible student-athletes and coaches.
They have given me, my family, and the Northern California volleyball community so much. From coaching at Bay to Bay Volleyball to running one of the biggest youth camps in the area, this program is woven into the fabric of this community.
We will work to bridge the gap between the decision makers and the community that so desperately needs Stanford Men's Volleyball.
If you have read this far, I hope that you will join us in this mission when called upon.
