His full name is Eduardo Jorge Bacil Filho, and is nicknamed Anjinho, which means “Little Angel” in Portuguese. He is a native of Copacabana Beach, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Anjinho was the first foreign player to win on the AVP. Anjinho and his partner at the time Jose Loyola stun the volleyball world with the win and ushered in a new powerhouse and style of volleyball, Bazillion Beach Volleyball. His record on the AVP includes: 2 Wins, 11 – 2nds, 16 – 3rds, 16 – 4ths and 31 – 5ths.
Anjinho has coached many of the great players of the past including Stein Metzger and although Stein is credited with the “Steino”, it was Anjinho who taught him this move!
