2020 OFFICIAL preseason high school volleyball All-America team - OFFICIAL
2020 MaxPreps preseason high school volleyball All-America team
The 2020 high school volleyball season won't look like any we've ever experienced. Split seasons with some states forging ahead while others play in the spring or winter. Toss in masks for competitors, coaches and referees with no switching benches after sets and a whole bunch of hand sanitizer and 2020 definitely will be something different.

The one thing that won't be different is the talent. We're spotlighting some of that talent in our preseason All-America team. The list is filled with repeat recipients in addition to newcomers and state champions. We've already highlighted the top player in each state as well as the best team in each state. Next week, we will drop our first Top 25 rankings for teams playing in the fall.

Best high school volleyball player in all 50 states - OFFICIAL
Best high school volleyball player in all 50 states
While football might have dominated the national headlines in terms of moving seasons due to the coronavirus, high school volleyball also has been affected across the country. We've spotlighted the best high school volleyball player in each state, regardless of whether the schedule is being played as regularly planned or an alternate calendar is in place.

From All-Americans to up-and-comers, players were identified based on last year's statistical data provided to MaxPreps, as well as local, state or national honors from multiple media outlets.

You could make the case that some, if not all, states could list out multiple players deserving of the honor. However, we've attempted to narrow it down to just one player per state set to serve, bump or spike it up this year.

2020 OFFICIAL preseason high school volleyball All-America team - OFFICIAL
2020 MaxPreps preseason high school volleyball All-America team
The 2020 high school volleyball season won't look like any we've ever experienced. Split seasons with some states forging ahead while others play in the spring or winter. Toss in masks for competitors, coaches and referees with no switching benches after sets and a whole bunch of hand sanitizer and 2020 definitely will be something different.

The one thing that won't be different is the talent. We're spotlighting some of that talent in our preseason All-America team. The list is filled with repeat recipients in addition to newcomers and state champions. We've already highlighted the top player in each state as well as the best team in each state. Next week, we will drop our first Top 25 rankings for teams playing in the fall.
