Who are the best players in the Southeast region? This is an open thread to discuss All-Region nominations, All-Freshman nominations, coaching awards, and more. Stay positive and keep it civil.
Grace Robinson from Mississippi State is an absolute monster. On offense she can and will make your best player look foolish. On defense, especially in zone, she can single handedly eliminate all of your deep options. Great all around player and a nightmare to stop.
Ellen Yu from Vanderbilt has had an amazing freshman season and has been a pivotal player for Vanderbilt this season. She’s been incredible on both sides of the disc stepping into big roles for the team and has some of the best throws I’ve seen
Marie Periviererer (UGA) - FOTY, and 1st team All Region.
Joz Veel (UGA) - First team All Region
(Coach of LSU so homer bias of course)
Lexie White - LSU.
Lexie is the best player in the Gulf Coast Section sans Vanderbilt.
*Unfortunately didn’t have the chance to see Vandy this year and so I can’t compare. I know they have several incredible players.
Lexie was known for athleticism her first 2 years of playing but has since shown a dramatic development of skills in this last year:
- around and inside breaks
- huge IO pulls
- hucks on both sides
- knows how to correct edge and release point for both upwind and downwind
- defensive positioning
- leadership skills
- and of course layouts on layouts on layouts
