Reid Priddy      

Olympic Medalist; Former Member of the U.S. Men's Volleyball Team

William Reid Priddy is an American volleyball player and former member of the United States men's national volleyball team and Italian club Cucine Lube Civitanova. He has also played on the AVP tour from 2000 to 2006. By the Athens 2004 Games, the outside hitter was a starter for Team USA.

Rio marked Priddy’s fourth straight Olympic Games (he was almost a five-time Olympian, having served as an alternate in 2000). At the time, he was the oldest U.S. men’s volleyball player at the Olympic Games. Recovering from an torn ACL in his right knee, he played sparingly before the bronze-medal match, then came off the bench to play a key role in Team USA’s five-set victory over defending champion Russia. Priddy has also helped the United States claim the gold medal in Beijing, where he was fourth among all scorers with 112 points on 93 kills. He was a starter again in London en route to Team USA’s fifth-place finish.

Priddy has competed professionally in Greece, Russia, Turkey and Italy and helped start the internet radio show “The NET Live.”
