I was diagnosed with prostate cancer a few weeks ago but I did not want to announce it and become a distraction to the team..I will be undergoing treatment that will take me away from my everyday coaching duties for the next several weeks. With the help of my team of doctors, my wife Mary, and the support of our family, I am trusting in God to get through this and see what my future holds,” says 70-year old coach Dave Shoji.

Stay strong coach Dave! The whole volleyball world is with you – we can win this together!
