LDS Volleyball Olympian Prepares

COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO -- This article is a rather lengthy article about Ryan Millar, the youngest member of the US Olympic Volleyball Team. Ryan, showed up at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs last year with a list of impressive accomplishments which have helped him to bring enthusiasm and, more important, ability as the U.S. moved up several spots in the world rankings in a matter of months.

U.S. Coach Doug Beal knew Millar was a player with strong blocking skills, but admitted he underestimated Millar's offensive ability. He was genuinely surprised to discover Millar's ability to pound the ball to any spot on the court.

Although Millar is 6-foot-7, that is considered a bit undersized for a middle blocker in today's international game. However, Millar's speed is the equalizer.

Millar, who is Mormon, will continue working on his degree in physical education. Millar's dream is to be head coach for the BYU Cougars.
