Donlin played football at Wayzata high school, not picking up handball until his freshman year at the Air Force Academy. He now plays professionally in Spain, in addition to his Team USA duties.

Unfortunately, the U.S. didn’t qualify for the 2021 Summer Olympics. So, this summer, Donlin will return to his job with the Air Force, something he details in the above video.

Donlin, 28, also played basketball and baseball in high school.
