Oak Forest High School Athletic Director Ron Towner announced that Senior Jeff Sprayberry has been named to the American Volleyball Coaches Association Boys’ High School Senior All-America Volleyball Athlete Watch List for the 2013-2014 season.
“It’s awesome and a great honor to make it on the list,” Sprayberry said. Sprayberry’s high school coach, Lee Rucinski, nominated him for the honor.
“It could make a difference in scholarship money because all of the All-American players participate in a game that college coaches attend,” Sprayberry explained. This year, that game will take place at Loyola University in Chicago.
This year’s watch list which includes 141 players from 15 states and two from Puerto Rico. This list serves as a starting point for the Boys’ High School Senior All-America selection process. In May, AVCA will name 20 student-athletes as All-American, with 10 players being selected to both a first team and a second team.
Sprayberry has verbally committed to play next year for King University in Bristol, Tennessee.
