PROVO, Utah – Three Cougars have been named VolleyMob All-Americans, the organization announced this week.

Senior outside hitter Brenden Sander collected VolleyMob Third-Team All-America honors while freshman opposite Gabi Garcia Fernandez and senior middle blocker Price Jarman were named VolleyMob All-America Honorable Mention.

Sander collected 367 kills this season to go with 103 digs, 75 blocks and 41 aces. He was previously named an AVCA First-Team All-American this year.

Fernandez led BYU this season in kills (387), digs (150), aces (51), blocks (90) and points (484.5). He was previously honored as the AVCA Newcomer of the Year and named an AVCA Third-Team All-American.

Despite an injury midway through the season, Jarman averaged 1.13 blocks per set while hitting at a .432 clip (115-19-222). He was also named AVCA All-America Honorable Mention this season.

All-Americans are voted on by a VolleyMob staff of writers and compiled based on aggregate results.
