Tyler Hildebrand has more accolades to his name than the much of the AVP Tour. No player in Long Beach State history has recorded more assists. He became a three-time All-American and went on to become a four-time gold medalist at the Pan-American Cup.
After eight (8!) knee surgeries, he retired as a player and began coaching at his alma-mater and on the beach, where he helped Casey Patterson and Jake Gibb to a win at the Manhattan Beach Open and a berth at the 2016 Olympic Games.
Billy Allen, a member of the AVP Tour for more than 10 years, joins Travis Mewhirter on Paper Courts.
Allen discusses everything from rooming with the guy, Ty Tramblie, who was battling for the setter position at Cal State Northridge; life on the AVP Tour; winning his first AVP event in Seattle this past year; discovering the Frankfurt Airport, and Europe in general; and balancing family duties with a life on the beach.
