The AVP would like to congratulate Casey Patterson who fans chose as the 2013 FIVB Male Beach Volleyball Athlete of the Year.
In an online poll of Facebook fans, Patterson was honored along with Germany’s Laura Ludwig, who was chosen as the FIVB Female Beach Volleyball Athlete of the Year.
Patterson, along with partner Jake Gibb, enjoyed a breakout season, internationally and on the AVP tour. Together they amassed an impressive amount of medals on the 2013 FIVB tour, winning gold in Shanghai and finishing within the top five at six different tournaments. Domestically, the duo won four AVP titles in four consecutive events.
