One libero, four setters and 13 front row standouts highlight the MaxPreps 2014 Volleyball Player of the Year Watch List.
The libero, Amber MacDonald, is also the team's shortest player at 5-foot-4. But on the court, she puts up big numbers and ranks second on Georgia's all-time digs list.
On the other end of the height chart is Yaasmeen Bedart-Ghani of Redondo Union. She is 6-4 and so dominant that many teams triple-team her. Many say she is among the most graceful players in the nation and it doesn't matter if she is in the front row or back.
It is likely that MacDonald, who has committed to Wisconsin, and Bedart-Ghani, who has committed to Texas, will see plenty of each other in college.
Three players on the POY Watch List were members of the gold-medal winning U.S. Junior National Team: Alexa Smith, Mikaela Foecke and Jordyn Poulter.
The 18 players are all seniors and represent 13 states. California, Texas, Tennessee, Illinois and Missouri have two players each on the POY Watch List.
The Player of the Year, along with MaxPreps All-Americans, will be named in December.
