Check out our watch list for 2024 USA TODAY HSSA Boys Volleyball Player of the Year

Must read

The USA TODAY High School Sports Awards is pleased to announce its watch list for 2024 USA TODAY HSSA Boys Volleyball Player of the Year!

This initial list includes 50 current student-athletes who meet the nomination criteria for this year’s national Boys Volleyball Player of the Year award. These athletes were either nominees in last year’s national show, or athletes who were seriously considered based on season-wide performance, state championships and any other state, regional and/or national recognition. 

Here’s a little more about this year’s program and how it works:

The official 2024 USA TODAY HSSA Boys Volleyball Team will be announced in August. All 25 final team members will be honored as nominees for national Boys Volleyball Player of the Year. Visit the event website for updates leading up to this summer’s awards!

Note: The purpose of this watch list is to track eligible nominees. Athletes could be removed from this list if they no longer play for their high school team (either by choice or injury), or if it was found that their high school does not participate in a state-sanctioned championship tournament for this sport.

Who else should we be tracking for national Boys Volleyball Player of the Year?

This watch list is only a starting point. All student-athletes who compete for state-sanctioned interscholastic championships are eligible for our program. Player of the Year suggestions can be submitted to both roleary@usatventures.com and BFontana@usatventures.com.
