There are so many great athletes in Clear Creek ISD. VYPE highlights five athletes from CCISD in this edition of The Stars of Clear Creek ISD powered by Texas Citizens Bank.
Mia Johnson, Clear Falls
Clear Falls' Mia Johnson is one of the most lethal outside hitters in the city of Houston. The senior and her squad have high expectations entering 2020 after a solid season a year ago. Johnson is committed to the University of Hawaii.
Shyia Richardson, Clear Springs
She's back… Clear Springs' Shyia Richardson returns to the huddle after a junior season that saw her earn District 24-6A co-District Offensive Player of the Year honors for her outside hitting prowess. She is committed to the University of San Francisco.
Jeremiah Crum, Clear Creek
Clear Creek's Jeremiah Crum went off as a sophomore last season, helping lead the Wildcats back to postseason for the first time since 2015. Crum carried the load on the ground for Clear Creek and earned co-District Newcomer of the Year honors. What will he do for an encore?
Jackson Carter, Clear Lake
Clear Lake's Jackson Carter will be the go-to guy on the outside for the Falcons' passing game. Carter enters his senior season with hopes of reaching the postseason after a tough year in 2019. He is also a talent on the mens' volleyball circuit.
Kenedi Miller, Clear Brook
Clear Brook had a magical season a year ago, winning district and advancing three rounds in the postseason for the first time in a decade. Gone are District MVP Kailin Newsome and Defensive MVP Tori Gehret to graduation, leaving Kenedi Miller and her class to carry the baton. Miller was a first-team, all-district outside hitter selection a year ago.

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.
