    Also, especially re Anna Pfefferle (and fellow middle blockers Katelyn Cuff and Rachel Hargis), there's an article posted in the Daily Camera website about the Buff middles today- http://www.dailycamera.com/cu-colle...all-youth-is-served-special-season?source=rss . Nice to see that position getting some press, as it typically gets the 2nd least notoriety/ respect in volleyball (similar to interior linemen in football).

    (Totally off topic rant- The least respected position? Liberos/ defensive specialists. The Pac 12 1st team has 18 players on it and the All-Freshman 1st team 7 more players. NONE of those 25 1st team players are liberos/ defense specialists. To me, that's like having a football all conference team with 12 quarterbacks, 5 receivers and 5 running backs on it.)
