Head Earns All-America Recognition from AVCA

Taylor Head has been recognized as one of the top players in the conference, region, and now nation in 2022 as the junior outside hitter earned an All-America Honorable Mention nod from the American Volleyball Coaches Association on Wednesday.

It’s the first All-America honor for Head in her career, first for Arkansas since 2017.

Head finished the season with 390 kills and 3.61 per set, both metrics that led Arkansas. She entered the program history books on Nov. 25 at Auburn when she reached her 1,000th career kill, the 18th Arkansas player to ever do so. She also led the team in double-doubles on the season with 16, and her 39 total currently sit at sixth-best all-time.

Taylor had a team-high in kills in 15 matches over the course of the season, 25 of them with 10+ kills. She came up big for the Razorbacks in their first NCAA Tournament run in nine years, and paced Arkansas’ offense with 27 kills, 3.86 per set, three service aces and 19 digs, all bests for the Hogs.

Head was named SEC Offensive Player of the Week on Oct. 24, received All-SEC honors, and was named AVCA All-South Region for the 2022 season prior to capturing All-America status.
