Middle blockers are such an effective asset on all volleyball teams. Having a player who is versatile in their attack and aggressive in their block is a must-have. Middles have a lot more responsibility than they are given credit for. They must provide both a balanced amount of offense and defense. They have lots of pressure to hit for high percentages and to slow down their opponents. A team cannot be successful without good connections from their middles.
