The True Blue Journey

I am tired of rich urban white men fantasizing about the glory of rural white America. I grew up in rural white America. I was beaten, raped, verbally abused and humiliated in school. The oppressors were cheered on since I was “too much” of a girl. Conform or else. That was the constant message. When […]

It happened almost in passing, in the first set of an eventually Long Beach State win over UC Santa Barbara. Senior T.J. DeFalco wound up, leaped and delivered the serve at a splintering speed. UC Santa Barbara was lucky to make any contact at all, and the ball ricocheted harmlessly out of bounds. Long Beach State celebrated almost as though it were any other ace. But it wasn’t. It was a record-breaking ace, as DeFalco became Long Beach State’s all-time leader in the category with 159 career aces. THERE IT IS!!! Career ace No. 159 for TJ DeFalco! #GoBeach #LBNation pic.twitter.com/RrvkLwznyT — Long Beach State Men’s VB (@lbsumvb) March 16, 2019 But such a muted celebration was in line with how DeFalco approached the record all along. “I had no idea until about a month ago I was even in the running,” the senior outside hitter admitted. “I saw something on Twitter like a month ago that I was seven away. It came up out of nowhere.” And that might be because halfway through his college career, DeFalco wasn’t on pace to break the record. But he knew when he arrived at Long Beach State from Huntington Beach High that he needed to make serving a priority. “Coming into college, it was like, ‘I’m not the tallest guy. I’m not going to jump out of the gym and touch the ceiling,’ ” DeFalco explained. “I got to deliver in different areas to be an asset. Serving is one of those things where anyone could do it.” DeFalco took a big step forward his junior year. He’d never topped 40 aces, of 0.34 aces per set before in his career. But as a junior, he delivered 53 aces and averaged 0.52, all while playing four fewer sets than he did as a sophomore as Long Beach State dominated its competition. This turned DeFalco into one of Long Beach State’s most dangerous weapons as it won its second-ever national championship. He was named Big West Player of the Year and to the All-NCAA Tournament team. There was a new assistant coach on the staff prior to DeFalco’s junior season, though he wasn’t new to Long Beach State: Scott Touzinsky, who set the previous program aces record and won a gold medal for the United States at the 2008 Olympics. Touzinksy helped head coach Alan Knipe achieve his vision for DeFalco: Hitting serves into the two-seam to start, and branch out for there. DeFalco also worked on being more consistent with his form and not deviating in approach. “Just his arm; him being able to throw the ball up there and just whack it, and consistently in over time,” Touzinsky said. “It’s a tough thing. That’s a credit to his preparation and his routine that he’s had for a long time.” The results were instantaneous, and DeFalco’s growth continues. At Friday’s practice as Long Beach State prepared for its Saturday match against USC, DeFalco’s serve hit 77 miles per hour on the radar gun for the first time. But for as flashy as the serve itself might be, DeFalco isn’t that kind of guy himself. His only real celebration of the record was sharing a breakfast this week with the man he surpassed. “There could be no one person better and more deserving of the honor to get that,” Touzinsky said. “He’s one of the guys I’ve grown close with since I got here, and obviously an unbelievable volleyball player and unbelievable guy.” [related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-section”]The subdued reaction was not dissimilar to when Long Beach State senior setter Josh Tuaniga reached the 4,000-assist mark earlier this season: A quick attaboy, then a return to the task at hand. Such an approach is indicative of the real goal for Long Beach State: Winning a second consecutive national championship. “We’re going to do it together,” DeFalco said. And if he adds a little more space between himself and the next 49er who will challenge the record, all the better for the team.
