A nationwide voting committee selected 15 players to the 2022-2023 FrogJump Division III Preseason All-American Team.
The FrogJump Division III Preseason All-American Team recognizes the NCAA Division III men’s volleyball players projected to be the best in the nation during the upcoming 2022-2023 season.
Players eligible for the honor had to be on an active roster for the upcoming season. The defending NCAA DIII Champions Carthage led all teams with 4 Preseason All-American Selections, followed by Vassar who had two selections. Wentworth, New Paltz, Messiah, Rutgers-Newark, North Central, St. John Fisher, Juniata, Springfield, and Benedictine each had one player selected to the Preseason All-American Team.
The 13-member voting committee for this award consisted of 10 DIII Men’s Volleyball Head Coaches from across the nation and 3 members of the FrogJump coverage team. The 15 players receiving the most votes were named FrogJump Preseason All-Americans. Players appearing on more than half of the ballots who failed to make the Preseason Team were awarded Honorable Mention. The committee unanimously chose five players for preseason honors: Jarrett Anderson (Springfield), Andrew Kim (Vassar), Pat Wing (New Paltz), Zach Bulthuis (Carthage), and Jacob LaBouliere (Wentworth).
FrogJump was launched in 2020 and has quickly become the industry leader in DIII Men’s Volleyball Coverage; started by former DIII athletes to promote the coverage, analysis, and growth of DIII men’s volleyball in the United States of America.
