This episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, features Mason Briggs, an All-American at Long Beach State and one of the best liberos in the world. But he’s far more than that. Briggs is a trailblazer, a 22-year-old who has amassed one of the biggest followings in all of NCAA Volleyball, a following he is using to expand the reach of the game in new and innovative ways, such as trading cards. We talked all about that, as well as:

  • Where Briggs’ entrepreneurial spirit comes from (come for the duct tape wallets, stick around for the Steve Madden story)
  • Why men’s volleyball is the world’s greatest kept secret
  • His “pinnacle moment” being the only college player on the USA National Team’s World Championship roster
  • What it’s like backing up, and learning from, Erik Shoji

And so much more.

Super fun podcast with Briggs!
