"Every player has the opportunity to win this award. If you have a great week and your coach enters your stats into MaxPreps, you can win." MaxPreps Volleyball Coordinator Megan Nelson said. "You don't have to be on the best team in the nation or even be the best player on your team. This program is unique in that way; every athlete has the potential to get recognized."
MaxPreps publishes schedules, scores and standings for each of the nearly 17,000 schools participating in girls' volleyball across the country. MaxPreps also provides high school coaches with free team pages, statistical software and a variety of other free services.
The American Volleyball Coaches Association, based in Lexington, Ky., is the national leader in volleyball coaching education. With a membership of over 6,300, the AVCA supplies educational materials, creates media content and provides recognition opportunities for coaches and players at all levels of the sport.
For the 2016 campaign, 455 individual athletes were selected. Winners receive a MaxPreps/AVCA branded letterman's patch and recognition on both MaxPreps.com and AVCA.org.
