One match at Lincoln Memorial and setter Kohl Kutsch already has earned a college men’s volleyball honor.

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

Kutsch had 28 assists and guided the offense to a .438 attack percentage as Lincoln Memorial swept Purdue Fort Wayne in its season opener Saturday. The offseason transfer from Orange Coast College also added four blocks and four digs against the Mastodons.


The 11 independent teams in NCAA Division I-II men’s volleyball this season are Alderson Broaddus, American International, Daemen, D’Youville, Fairleigh Dickinson Limestone, Lincoln Memorial, Long Island, Maryville Queens and Tusculum.

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 week during the regular season on the Off the Block website,
