The finalists are set for the top All-Decade honors.
Off the Block announced on Wednesday the finalists for the National Player of the Decade, the National Coach of the Decade, the National Program of the Decade and the National Team of the Decade.
A nationwide voting committee of men’s volleyball coaches and volleyball media members determined the finalists and overall winners for each of the four national decade honors.
The top-five vote-getters for the National Player of the Decade were named finalists, while the top-three vote-getters for each of the other awards were selected as finalists. A tie in the voting for the National Team of the Decade and the National Coach of the Decade resulted in an additional finalist for both of those categories.
The award winners are scheduled to be revealed in the upcoming days on the Off the Block website.
Off the Block is a national award winning website that launched in 2011 and is the nation’s leader in college men’s volleyball coverage.
