Why a Taylor duo is a change of pace
Team USA’s last option for men’s volleyball has fallen into a duo of Taylors, namely Taylor Crabb and Taylor Sander. They may be the last hope for Team USA’s chances in the coming years.
While the Games are set for 2024, there is still plenty of time for the duo to become a strong tandem in their games. This gives them a chance to work out on their games and join a lot of contests in the coming run.
It is easy to say why almost every fan is curious about their chances of winning. This will be the first Games that will see a game without either Jake Gibb and Phil Dalhausser as the top two blockers for Team USA’s lineup.
The shuffle will be real, and it will also change the way that American volleyball is looked at by a lot of fans from all over the world. This is why there is still a need to make a change for the pairing when it comes to America’s top stars.
A future for Crabb is even better
Nothing can happen until Taylor Crabb makes his move to join Sander. As the former partner of Gibb, Crabb has learned a lot from being the wingman of one of the best defenders in the United States. He is clearly one of the top five in the world, and he is clearly the top pick for any spot that a team or a duo needs.
At the moment, Crabb seems intent on deciding to go with Sander. The latter is an indoor star who has recently started his run on the sand, and he is no longer a stranger to the beach on that note. This is why there is more to expect from him in the coming games.
Crabb can thrive with a star as the new lead veteran in Team USA’s campaigns. Even if he comes in as an undersized blocker, playing with Sander should not be a hard task for him since he is one of the fastest stars in the sand, and he can blend well with his new teammate.
Zero risks for both stars
Some say that it will take time for the duo to work well as a combo. However, it was just the same when it came to April Ross moving to join with Alix Klineman, who was a blocker with zero points and soon became one of the best stars to ever play in doubles volleyball.
Until Crabb goes to announce that he is going to make Sander his full-time partner, there would be no progress between the stars’ games. They need some time to work out on their games, and this is what matters when it comes to their chances of winning a lot of trophies by the end of 2024.
They can even beat both Tri Bourne and Trevor Crabb as the no. 1 team in the US, and even Chaim Schalk and Theo Brunner would not stand a chance against the new duo to get a shot at the Paris Games.
There isn’t much shock if this happens as more success waits for the duo. Crabb going for a tandem with Sander means a lot for most fans who hope to see a new duo rise from the ashes.
