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.
This probably should have been published yesterday, but better late than never, right? Each week, on top of the bigger DFW football breakdowns that will be published, we'll predict 24 notable games based on highly scientific research methodologies.
Or off gut instinct. Or flip a coin. Throw darts a board. Whatever strikes our fancy is how we'll handle this.
But since we missed yesterday's notable games - listed here - we'll only have 20 this week, which includes the longer breakdown predictions. And for full disclosure, the four teams that won in our list from Thursday - Flower Mound (over Keller Fossil Ridge); Arlington Bowie (over Flower Mound Marcus); McKinney Boyd (over Garland Naaman Forest); Prestonwood Christian (over Wylie) - would have been totally picked to win beforehand. Scouts honor.
All jokes aside, here are this week's projects. And including Thursday's matchup between Plano West and Frisco Reedy, we're off to a good start at 1-0.
