Taylor Crabb and Taylor Sander: The Bigger Mission of America's Most Popular Team

This episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, features America’s most popular team: Taylor Crabb and Taylor Sander. A note: We recorded this interview before their win at AVP Huntington Beach, which, to us, actually makes this all the more interesting. Aside from being two of the best volleyball players on the planet, they’re also refreshingly candid, forthcoming, and well-spoken and introspective. This was an excellent, excellent podcast. We chat about: - Taylor Crabb’s off-season in New Zealand playing with Phil Dalhausser - Why Taylor Sander and Crabb decided that the Olympic race wasn’t necessarily for them - Crabb’s bigger mission, and why he’s chasing far more than individual accomplishments - How Crabb and Sander would fix USA Volleyball And much, much more.

Taylor Crabb, Taylor Sander, and "the most satisfying victory in the world"

Taylor Crabb and Taylor Sander are, alas, Manhattan Beach Open champions. The world feels right, properly balanced, with Taylor Crabb on the Pier. As for Sander? It took the guy just two shots – two! – to get his name on the Pier. That’s insane. We chat all about their win at the Manhattan Beach Open, as well as a number of other topics y’all are going to love, including: - Why Sander thought they had no chance of winning when he woke up Sunday morning - How a trash talker ruined the hopes of Hagen Smith and Logan Webber, and might just be responsible for them getting on the pier - Why Sander thinks beach volleyball is harder than indoor volleyball - Taylor Crabb’s sweet satisfaction of winning it five years after missing the swing that would have put him on the pier in 2018 And so much more. ENJOY! PHOTO: Mpu Dinani *** Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter have a NEW BOOK! Playbook of Champions: The habits, routines, and stories of Olympians, Champions, and world-class athletes.
