Complete Release from USA Volleyball

Long Beach State incoming freshman Curtis Stallings was selected to the U.S. Boys' Youth National Volleyball Team, which is slated to compete at the 2013 FIVB Boys' U19 World Championships in Mexico, June 27-July 7.

Stallings, a 6-foot-5 setter from Chesapeake, Va., was a two-time Southeastern District Player of the Year at Grassfield High School. He was also recently named to Volleyball Magazine's Boys' Fab 50 List.

"Curtis has proven himself as one of the top-tier setters in the country, which has been validated by him making the Youth National Team," 49er head coach Alan Knipe said. "He has very good size and athletic ability, which allows him to be a complete player."

The U.S. wrapped up group play on Monday, July 1, finishing fourth in Pool D with a 2-2 record (five points). They advanced to the Round of 16 where they were unable to move on to the quarterfinals with a loss to eventual champion Russia. The U.S. ended up placing 16th overall.
