Whether your goal is to join the list of famous college volleyball players become one of the American pro volleyball players playing overseas or just make your varsity volleyball team...its good to become familiar with the journey and accomplishments of others who've come before you.   

I hope this section and particularly this page will serve as a source of volleyball motivation when times get tough, when your muscles are super sore, when you want to quit and give up on all your goals.  

I created this famous indoor volleyball players section for hungry and motivated players like yourself, to have a destination spot where you can always come and read the stories, and catch up on inspiring volleyball news on players who started ...right where you are starting now.

Like you, each of them were on their middle school or high school volleyball team going through the struggle and frustration of just learning how to play the game and hoping to get good enough...to make their varsity starting team.

So, no...you are not alone! It just feels like it sometimes.

Hopefully this section, these players, these words, and their stories will help lift your spirits and motivate you to go outside and 200 more reps of setting drills, serving drills or passing against the wall volleyball drills completed today.  


Before They Were Pro Volleyball Players They Were College Volleyball Student Athletes Being Recognized For Their Hard Work


Each year, Volleyball Magazine selects a group of the nation's best female college volleyball athletes who they feel deserved to be honored for their accomplishments.

When a player has been named to a collegiate All American team that means a specific group of people, in this case, the editors at Volleyball Magazine have followed their stats, their team's win/loss record and that player's individual accomplishments both on and off the court for that year's season.


Have you seen the 2018 All DearVolleyball.com's list of best girls high school volleyball players in Las Vegas? 


Then based on their findings decided to choose them as one of the outstanding amateur players in the country competing in Division I.

They have been doing this every year since...okay since I was playing in college. 

They usually name eight players to the first team, nine on the second team and ten Division I female volleyball players on the third team.

I was named as a Volleyball Magazine Second Team All American so they've been doing it since the mid 80s.   

Just so you know a bit more about Volleyball

"Each issue of Volleyball  Magazine has all the latest beach volleyball players, college volleyball players, and juniors volleyball news, insightful profiles, training, instructional and nutrition tips, and exciting photos from the sport's top photographers.

I don't get paid to tell you this and I'm not a Volleyball Magazine salesperson but Ive read the magazine ever since I started playing when it was a large format, photography heavy monthly subscription sent to my house.  

I read it because all my female super heroes and role models like Flo Hyman, Rita Crockett, Mary Jo Pepper, Kathy Gregory, Paula Weishoff, Rose Magers and other top female volleyball athletes were featured every month and that's where I found my inspiration to keep practicing, and keep doing drills everyday.
