Men’s Volleyball Sends Two To U21 World Championship

Volleyball season has started a little earlier for two Penn Staters as assistant coach Jay Hosack and junior Aaron Russell will head Turkey for this month’s FIVB Men’s U21 World Championships.

Russell, who led the men’s team in kills last year with 366, will work as a middle hitter for Team USA. Hosack will serve as an assistant coach for the squad.

The tournament, which starts August 22nd, begins with a round-robin style schedule consisting of four groups of five. The winner of each group will then advance to the final bracket of the tournament. Team USA is in a group with Rwanda, Tunisia, Canada, and Serbia.

“For me, to wear the name USA on your back is an extremely high honor,” said Hosack. “To have Penn State represented on the roster speaks highly of the caliber of athletes that we have here.”

Here’s a video montage someone put together of Russell:
