From the number of hits per side to the number of winning sets per match, volleyball is a game of threes. BYU volleyball is no exception with it’s trio of All-Americans.
Taylor Sander, Futi Tavana, and Robb Stowell are all coming off of outstanding 2011 campaigns and show no signs of slowing down this season. Having three elite athletes on the same team is a luxury that these Cougars aren’t taking for granted.
“Just having them in practice and competing against those players everyday is something not a lot of people get to do. So I’m just super blessed to have them on my team,” said Outside Hitter Taylor Sander.
An outside hitter, middle blocker and opposite, they each play different positions. But when it comes to the achievements of the team, these Volleyballers are on the same page.
With an average height of six foot six and vertical leaps approaching 40 inches, stopping these guys is a tall order.
As the season draws to a close, the Cougars sights are set on the postseason and with this loaded roster, they know it could be now or never.
“If we’re gonna win a national championship, this could be this year, because we have so many talented guys,” said Sander.
With more than half the teams points, this big three hopes to lead this squad to a fourth… national title that is.
