  • About the USAV High Performance program's impact on his career...The HP Program was instrumental from where I'm at now. You’re able to experience the international game, experience what it’s like to travel and play for your country and have that responsibility. You’re also able to interact with some of the Men’s National Team players, watch them train, watch some matches, and see what it takes to get to that next level.
