The goal is very simple: Recognize the best public high school volleyball players in the state of Texas.
As I've said many times before, Texas has the best collection of volleyball players in the United States (if not the world).
Consider there are approximately 1,200 public high school volleyball teams. If you figure an average of nine players per team (and that's a conservative number), that's about 11,000 players to consider for our 2nd Annual VYPE All-State Awards.
But here they are – we believe these are the best in a state full of incredible volleyball talent.
The 2019 Texas high school football season has completed four weeks of action. Kerrville Tivy, San Antonio Harlan and Brackenridge made the biggest statements in Week 4, and that reflected in this week's VYPE San Antonio UIL 5A rankings. The Antlers defended their No. 1 ranking with a 24-19 win against Boerne Champion, the Hawks beat Del Rio 28-21 to become the area's first 4-0 UIL 5A team in 2019, and the Eagles' 28-13 victory handed San Antonio Burbank its first loss. Check out the full list of ranked teams and honorable mentions below!
