Todd Rogers      

Olympic Gold Medalist; Former Professional Beach Volleyball Player

Known as “The Professor” because of the way he coached himself and his partners, Todd Rogers is credited with changing the game of beach volleyball. Rogers played his last professional match on July 16, 2016, in the Manhattan Beach Open, closing out a career that included more than 80 tournament victories, two Olympic appearances and a gold medal with Phil Dalhausser in 2008.

AVP Rookie of the year in 1997, Rogers was named the AVP’s Most Valuable Player in 2007 and Best Defensive Player from 2004-2008. Rogers, who is 6-foot-2, recognized the potential in the 6-9 Dalhausser and they played together for seven years, becoming one of the most successful duos in history. Besides their Olympic gold medal, they won a FIVB world championship in 2007, a FIVB World Tour championship, nine FIVB World Tour Grand Slam events, 23 FIVB tournament titles, four AVP Tour Championships and 43 AVP tournament titles. Rogers and Dalhausser set the FIVB World Tour record of consecutive match wins with 40.

Upon his retirement in 2016, Rogers was hired as the head beach volleyball coach at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, California.
