2008 Olympic Gold Medalist Todd Rogers is teaming up this year on the beach with 7-foot-1 Ryan Doherty.

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

2008 Olympic Gold Medalist Todd Rogers is breaking in a new beach volleyball partner. 7-foot-1 Ryan Doherty is just scratching the surface in terms of this sport but is very athletic as he played minor league baseball.

Rogers has a great history working with inexperienced players. The 39-year old former UCSB star tutored 6-foot-9 Phil Dalhausser and the two formed one of the greatest beach teams in history highlighted by the win at the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing, China.

Rogers and Doherty leave for China this weekend as the FIVB World Tour begins play this season.
