Decade of Dominance (3-9-18)
The UW-Oshkosh men’s volleyball team put the finishing touches on its tenth straight Wisconsin Volleyball Conference regular season title with a thrilling 25-15, 25-16, 18-25, 20-25, 15-12 victory over UW-Whitewater on senior night (March 8) at Kolf Sports Center.

UW-Oshkosh (20-8 / 8-2 WVC), ranked 15th in the latest National Collegiate Volleyball Federation Division I poll, took a three-match lead over the second place Warhawks with the win. After dominating the first two sets, the Titans had to survive a back and forth deciding stanza to claim the championship.

Nick Davies (So. – Waukesha) had a fantastic overall match leading the team with 18 kills on a .441 hitting percentage. He added 22 assists, five digs and four blocks. Peter Nordel (Sr. – Torrance, Calif.) added 10 kills and a team leading seven blocks, Brandon Schmidt (Gr. – Kaukauna) piled up 13 kills on 21 attempts and Matt Pedersen (Jr. – Muskego) dished out a team best 28 assists and had nine digs.

Jake Martin (Jr. – New Lenox, Ill.) tallied 11 digs and two service aces, Sam Moua (Sr. – Appleton) topped the team with three service aces and provided nine digs and Alex Basting (Jr. – Franklin) slammed down six kills. Sammy Pedersen (Sr. – Muskego) had eight digs as the Titans had 58 saves in the match.

Before the contest the Titans honored graduating players Moua, Nordel and Sammy Pedersen from the Division I team, Steve Cotton (Muskego) and Andrew Shea (Brookfield) from Division II and Danny Mirda (Brookfield) from Division III.

“I am proud of the team’s resiliency tonight,” said head coach Will Brydon. “While it was not our best volleyball, the team stayed tough and battled back to win in the end. It is even more special to know this victory seals a tenth straight WVC Division I regular season title. To see the team continue the legacy of the teams that came before them is such an amazing sight. 10 years of championships is special accomplishment and a testament to our program’s determination to play at a top level day in and day out.”

“A special thanks to our graduating players as we celebrate their successes along with this victory,” added Brydon. “Their leadership, hard work, and drive make all the difference.”

The Beginning of a New Era - Will Brydon Takes Over (10-15-17)
Will Brydon, formerly the Division II team head coach, has been selected to move into a new role this season as the acting program lead and Division I team head coach.

"As I begin this new role with the program, I am truly humbled by the coaches and players that have come before me and paved the way for UW-Oshkosh Men's Volleyball. This program is built on a foundation of hard work and success, and I am excited to continue on this tradition."

Brydon began acting as the program head coach after Brian Schaefer announced his decision to step down from the program to pursue other career opportunities. Brydon says of Schaefer, "Brian Schaefer, or Lumpy as many called him, will forever be "coach" to me. I called him that when I played under his direction under, and I never stopped when I began coaching alongside him. He is a great friend, a mentor, and a kindred spirit - we both truly love the sport and have sacrificed to help ensure our players' success. In short, you cannot think UW-Oshkosh Men's Volleyball without thinking of Brian Schaefer, and I can only hope to honor his legacy through my actions in this position."

While he certainly has big shoes to fill, Brydon is up for the task. In three years as the Division II team's head coach, Brydon amassed a 136-28-2 record (.819 win %) complete with a NCVF Division III National Championship Runner-up finish in 2015 and two 5th place finishes in 2016 and 2017. He has also lead that team to 3 straight WVC regular season and state championships. These teams have been filled with athletes that have garnered All-Conference and All-American honors under his leadership. While collegiate coaching is his passion, Brydon has also coached successfully at many levels of the game.

Currently in his 4th year as the Winneconne High School girls head coach, Brydon has a record of 86-38 (.694 win %) compiled alongside many program firsts. He helped lead the program in the 2015-16 season to its first conference championship in 26 years, a Regional Championship, and the program's first ever Sectional Final appearance. His involvement in the high school girl's game keeps Brydon well-rounded, but he also has extensive experience in the women's youth club game and as a club satellite co-director.

Brydon also comes to this role after completing a successful playing career. He played 3 years of Varsity Volleyball at Glenbrook North High School in Illinois and made a state appearance in 2008. In college at UWO, he sat out his freshmen year to work but rejoined the team his sophomore season in 2009-10. He was the Division 2 team captain in 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons, and in that final season he won the NCVF Division 3 National Championship and was selected as an Honorable Mention All-American for that division.

Clearly, volleyball has been a huge part of Brydon's life for many years. He says, "It is a privilege to lead such a high caliber program, but wins are not the only aspect of UWO Men's Volleyball that makes it special. I met my best friends on the team - fellow players and coaches that truly had my back through thick and thin. I coach in a way that pays homage to that experience. My philosophy is that UWO Men's Volleyball is a family, and we conduct ourselves as such. We honor the traditions that came before us and add to our legacy each season. I am excited to see what this season holds."
