What I Love About Beach Volleyball: Mike C.

 

My name is Mike C. I live in Hermosa Beach.

I have been playing volleyball for 12 years. What got me into beach volleyball was just love for the sport, watching it on TV back when I was a kid, and then being able to play it for a little bit of time when I lived in Chicago.

What's really frustrating with my game is my scoring and my attacking and I think Mark has really improved my scoring and my jump serving as well.

But that doesn't mean that defense in beach volleyball is any less important. The old sporting adage, 'defense wins championships' is as true as it has ever been. There's a reason that Phil Dalhausser and Nick...
