As we prepare for a couple of hours of great work and fun, let’s take a look at some of the players who will be in action that day in San Antonio.
Scott was in two of our Showcases last summer, in Dallas and Houston, and was recognized for her great play on both. After playing a solid role with Cedar Ridge during the high school season, we’re looking forward to seeing which new tools she added to her game. Scott is obviously a tall setter and she uses every single benefit that comes with it on the court, but she has the mobility and the technique of a shorter player. She’s very good at incorporating strategy into her ball distribution but is also very effective when making last-second decisions. Her ball-handling is always on point and, despite her young age, she manages to set to every position with the same level of efficiency.
Bourn should be one of the most physical prospects on the court and we’re looking forward to seeing what she can do in our event. Currently listed at 6’2″, she is very strong and athletic and makes a big impact at the net. Bourn can hit different sets in the middle and almost always puts a lot of power into her swings – which paired with her high contact point makes of her a very difficult player to stop when she gets into a rhythm. Her blocking is also very effective as she places her long arms well across the net to put pressure on opposing hitters and gets off the floor very quickly.
As a 5’5″ pin hitter, Esquibel might not get enough respect from opponents when they first play her, but that certainly changes within a few minutes of action. She has been playing volleyball since she was nine and is very sound technically, but also holds her own at the net, jumping very well and using her technical resources to score points. She’s a player who can contribute in every area of the game and just ended her senior high school season with 568 kills, 505 passes, 368 digs and 55 aces.
