Matt Anderson is a professional volleyball player and a member of the USA National Team. Matt competed in the 2012 London Olympics for the USA Men's Volleyball team (which was my favorite sport to watch this summer.) Matt was named USA Volleyball Male Indoor Player of the Year in 2012 and was the youngest player and leading scorer on the Men’s National Team. He was also World League Silver Medalist in 2012. The 6'10 Anderson played volleyball at Penn State as an All-American outside hitter. He is currently playing volleyball for the Russian club team Zenit Kazan.

What is Matt Anderson reading?

Matt tweeted back, "I'm currently reading Open by Andre Agassi, I recommend it along with Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach."

Thank you, Matt! I'm always happy to see athletes reading.

ooh, I do love volleyball, especially since Serbia has often been European and world champion :)
And volleyball players are usually the most educated ones, unlike the football and soccer ones...

KELLY: I'm really, really terrible at volleyball, but I'll go follow this fella. Thanks!

He is very, very cute. I read Jonathan Livingston Seagull a loooong time ago.

Susan Fields said...

I read Jonathan Livingston Seagull once, but it was ages ago. I should probably read it again sometime.
