Rudy Dvorak, U.S. volleyball national team member, had volleyball on his mind since birth--perhaps sooner. Snug within his mother's womb, Rudy was surrounded by the ooofs and aaaffs of players who set, spiked and dived on the courts of Crescent Bay in Laguna Beach. There, he was born into an oceanfront home, with the waves, cliffs and volleyball courts for his playground. The Dvorak children--Marie, Dusty, Diedra, Rudy and Drake--were reared by their mother, Shirley.
