The VCU Volleyball team got a nice surprise Wednesday when they met USA Men’s Volleyball captain Reid Priddy. A three-time Olympian who won gold with the U.S. in Beijing in 2008, Priddy was born in Richmond and lived here until his family moved in the mid 80s (His dad, Ken, is also a VCU graduate). He did have his gold medal with him, by the way.

Reid Priddy dropped by volleyball practice Wednesday.

NBC 12 was shooting an interview with Priddy yesterday and needed a volleyball backdrop on short notice, so they asked us to help them out. In the end, it turned out to be a win for everybody involved.
