Worst to First: Kawika Shoji leads Stanford to NCAA Mens Volleyball Championship

Setter and National Player of the Year Kawika Shoji lead his brother Erik and the Stanford Men’s Volleyball team to the 2010 NCAA championship over Penn State.  It was awesome to see Asian-Americans celebrating an NCAA Division I championship win – just don’t see that very often.  In 2007, the current seniors on the Stanford team endured a 3-25 season.  Now they are national champions, winning in a dominating 3 straight sets – hence “worst to first.”  Kawika and Erik’s father Dave is a volleyball coach at the University of Hawaii Manoa.
