“Carson has the opportunity to become a good player that can start.” - U.S. Head Coach John Speraw in the Daily Pilot

“Everybody on the team is there to win and to represent Team USA in the best way possible. In volleyball, you can’t win with just one guy and I think that’s a good thing because you’re a little more humble. We’re hungry and ready to be the best in the world.” - Carson Clark
