SCHOOL: Highland YEAR: Senior SEASON AT A GLANCE: Pizza maker or volleyball breaker, Ryan Millar does it all. If he's not tossing pizza dough at his workplace, the 6-foot-8 Millar is slamming down kill after kill and completely rewriting the Highland High record book. One statistic that won't make the book: Millar once hit a ball hard enough to puncture its air bladder.

The billboard outside the Olympic training center serves as a daily reminder for Ryan Millar, counting the days to Sydney from the moment he arrived at the Colorado Springs facility last year. 370, 369, 368. . . . He showed up for the U.S. national team tryouts with a decorated resume and a freshly earned national championship, accolades that would stop a bus, but didn't necessarily guarantee a spot on the Team USA roster. This was a new level of play, after all.

Ryan Millar is coming back to the Valley area. And he's bringing some friends.

Millar, The Times' 1995 player of the year in the region, leads the Cougars in kills (6.06 per game), blocks (1.91 per game) and hitting percentage (.428).

Ryan Millar's nap is interrupted and, as he fumbles for the phone, he shows none of the dexterity that makes him the best player on perhaps the best college volleyball team in the nation. After the 6-foot-8 middle blocker leaves his hotel room to meet a visitor in the lobby, he wipes the sleep from his eyes and perks up when the talk turns to volleyball. One thing becomes clear: To keep pace with Millar, a man in motion on and off the court at Brigham Young, one needs to rise before the sun.

Scary thought for the day: Ryan Millar almost went to Cal State Northridge. Instead, the 6-foot-7 middle blocker went to Brigham Young University and, not coincidentally, the Cougars defeated Cal State Northridge, 16-14, 13-15, 15-8, 15-5, in a Mountain Pacific Sports Federation match Wednesday night at Northridge. The NCAA freshman of the year last season, Millar pounded 37 kills and a stake into the Matadors' heart.

After needing nearly three hours to win its semifinal match against Indiana-Purdue Fort Wayne on Thursday, the Long Beach State men's volleyball team plays the nation's No. 1 team in the NCAA championship match this afternoon.

It's going to be Hell Week all over again for the Cal State Northridge men's volleyball team. After three losses Saturday in the UC Santa Barbara tournament brought the Matadors' final tournament record to 2-6, Coach John Price told his players to get ready to audition this week in practice. "We're going to find a starting lineup, which we no longer have," Price said after La Verne beat the Matadors, 15-12, 15-7, in the 11th-place match.

The U.S. men's volleyball team rolled past Costa Rica, 25-14, 25-9, 25-9, on Tuesday at the NORCECA Olympic Qualification Tournament at the Pyramid at Long Beach State.
