A touching tribute from Douglas Nascimento in Eric’s memory reads:
Wow. I was just speaking to him this past weekend at the NYC AVP and he seemed to be happy and fired up about this season.
It’s been a long couple of weeks for all of us in the volleyball world with deaths of close friends and colleagues. Depression is real and can manipulate your mind to do things you wouldn’t normally do.
I hope that anyone out there that needs someone to talk to or spend time with reaches out for help. I am always here for you and hope that I can somehow help in any way.
One of the top players in the country gone way to soon because of this deadly sickness. RIP Eric Zaun aka Road Dog.
