Volleyball Player of the Year Watch List

The first serve is just days away. With 2020 coming quickly, let’s take a gander at the local talent who return after solid seasons from a year ago. We identify the front-runners and those on the cusp. Of course, there are many who will come out of nowhere this season, and others who are currently flying under the radar. Tallulah Falls senior Katy Corbett does return to try and maintain her Player of the Year status after taking the honors in 2019. To add to the fun, the 2018 winner of POY, Jefferson’s JoJo Smith, is also back for her senior year, too.

We put the debate up for a public vote to see who fans think might end up taking the award at the end of the season. The overwhelming favorite according to the public is Maddie Grace Smith (Jefferson) so far (voting closes soon).
