Setter Jonathan Winder (Irvine, Calif.) joined the U.S. Men’s team in 2007. That year he helped the U.S. Men to the bronze medal at the World University Games in Bangkok, Thailand. In 2008 he helped lead the U.S. Men to the gold medal at the 2008 Pan American Cup in Winnipeg, Canada. He was also part of the U.S. Men’s Training team that traveled to Japan to prepare the Japanese for Olympic qualifying.


In 2008 Winder finished a four year collegiate career at Pepperdine that includes winning the 2005 NCAA National Championship and advancing to the finals in 2008. Winder was named an AVCA All-American, and set a school record for assists. In 2007, he was named the AVCA Division I-II Men’s National Player of the Year and Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) Player of the Year.


Winder was born in 1986 in Irvine, Calif., to Bill (deceased) and Jean Winder. He has an older brother, Jordan, and an older sister, Jenille. His favorite food is artichokes. Winder admires Admires his father, who died when Jonathan was 4, because "he lived his life not for himself but for his family, his friends and God."
