Former Palmer High Product returns to the Springs with Team USA

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. Cody Kessel started his volleyball career in Colorado Springs. With stops at Princeton and professionally in Germany, Kessel is now playing for Team USA back in his hometown where it all began.

"Growing up here, being born literally 400 meters from this court, going to high school down the street, to be here, it's really hard to put into words but I am really proud to represent the Springs and Colorado and the United States."

Kessel is playing in the NORCECA Champions Cup at the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Training Center. Matches go thru Saturday and are open to the public.
