I hope Niles Norths Andre Shaw made the top 50 at least the kid had 218 kills 41 solo blocks 18aces all conference 2010 an all area by the sun times

That kid was definitely not all area in the Sun Times. What club does he play for?

What about Warren Townships new Setter?

Very impressive list, however, I find it hard to believe Nikola Antonjevic is not in your top 50. He was on the USA Volleyball High Performance Youth National Team, representing the US in the International Jr. Olympics last summer.

What about Lake Forest's new middle?

He was on the all area by chicago tribune for all conference players and he doesnt play club but 218kills 41 solo blocks is pretty impressive as a middle blocker (Andre Shaw)

Glenbard West High School-
Adam Lepold
Kevin McGinnis
Alex Kahn
Ian Lawson
Alex Emanuel -
Top players

What about Glenbard West????
Adam Lepold - 3 year varsity
Kevin McGinnis - 3 year varsity
Ian Lawson - 2 year Varsity junior
Alex Emanuel - 2 year Varsity junior
Alex Kahn - UP AND COMING- Amazing

when is the top 50 coming out?

I watched Ray Riordan of Hinsdale South hit 19 kills on Tuesday night being set by Eric Damon.

Carmel's middle hitter, 6-foot-4 Jack Butler, is the Corsairs' most potent weapon. He had 9 kills in 10 attempts last night. He played for RTVBC.

I think there are a few kids that should be looked at in my opinion;

Greg Sims - Maine South
Jake Rictker- Maine South
Scotty Adamzky-Maine South

Lucas Rytel-Glenbrook South
Charlie Tisch-Glenbrook South

Alex Cook-New Trier
Eric Kerr-New Trier

Henry Lamp-Lake Forest

Just a few I got a chance to watch recently.

Christian Harris - Joliet Catholic

scott whitaker- jr libero, neuqua valley... watch out for this kid!

Scott Whitaker, neuqua valley.. kids raw

What about Mundelein's middle? He has sick hair, and a great athlete.

this list is not true. just a buncha spri kids

Only 12 Spri kids. This list isn't perfect, but it's not bad either.
