His English may be a bit slow right now, but he’s very quick on the court, said WolfPack men’s volleyball head coach Patrick Hennelly.

Behlul Yavasgel, a 6’4″, 190-pound 18-year-old who played 13 times for Turkey’s National Team, will play middle for the WolfPack men’s volleyball team this year, wearing the #15 jersey for Thompson Rivers University.

Yavasgel, who is enrolled in English as a Second Language courses in preparation for embarking on business studies, has already won many awards for his prowess on the court in his home country.
