Ten players have been selected as finalists for the Off the Block Fan Choice Player of the Month.
The Player of the Month award recognizes the best individual performances from NCAA Division I-II men’s volleyball players during the month and gives volleyball fans from around the world the chance to determine who was the best player.

At least one player from every conference with an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament is required to be among the finalists.
