A new national award will be introduced this season to recognize the best college men’s volleyball server in the country.
Off the Block announced Monday that at the end of this regular season it will present the inaugural national Server of the Year award to honor the top NCAA Division I-II player from behind the service line this year.
Several volleyball organizations give out end-of-year awards. However, this will be the first award given to a player solely based on their serving performance throughout the regular season.
The inaugural Server of Year winner will be determined by a national voting committee comprised of coaches and media members.
This is one of three awards Off the Block presents that is decided by a nationwide voting committee. Off the Block also presents the Preseason All-American Teams at the start of the season and the national Blocker of Year at the end of the regular season.
The three finalists for the Server of the Year will be announced Thursday, April 18 on Off the Block’s website, offtheblockblog.com. In addition, the winner of the award will be named Tuesday, April 23.
Off the Block is a website that started in January 2011 and solely focuses on covering college men’s volleyball.
