The Olympics are always such an exciting time and always fun to watch. It always stirs up a sense of pride in our country as we route on the United States Olympians. This year, we had a special Olympian to cheer on – Max Holt. Holt was part of the United States Men’s Olympic Volleyball Team who won a Bronze Medal in Rio.
Holt grew up in the great city of Norwood and attended Nativity School and Purcell Marian High School. In high school, he found a love for volleyball and he earned a spot on the Penn State University team. He graduated from Penn State in 2009 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism, but not before leading his team to victory in the 2008 NCAA National Championship. He also was a two time AVCA first team all-American while at Penn State.
