A season-best performance from outside attacker Jose Ramirez resulted in a victory for Alderson Broaddus and a college men’s volleyball award for the sophomore.

Off the Block announced Monday that Ramirez was selected as the Off the Block Independent Teams Player of the Week.

Ramirez led all players with a season-high 20 kills as Alderson Broaddus defeated Queens in five games on Friday. The outside attacker also contributed seven digs and two blocks in the Battlers’ home-opener victory against a fellow independent program.


The Independent Teams Player of the Week recognizes the best player during the week from NCAA Division I-II men’s volleyball teams that are competing without a conference affiliation. The four independent teams this season are Alderson Broaddus, Coker, Lincoln Memorial and Queens.

Off the Block determines the Independent Teams Player of the Week based on a variety of factors, including a player’s individual performance and how a player’s team fared during the week.

The winner of the Independent Teams Player of the Week is unveiled every Monday during the regular season on the Off the Block website,

Off the Block is a national award winning website that started in 2011 and is the nation’s leader in college men’s volleyball coverage.
