This year with the National team of USA she won bronze at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and the silver at FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix.
Jordan Larson also won this prize in 2015.
“I feel so honoured,” said Larson-Burbach.
“These past two years have been both challenging but so rewarding at the same time. I am so thankful to be surrounded with such great teammates, coaches and people who make me and allow me to be the best version of myself every single day. I couldn’t have done this without them. I am so grateful.”
A USA Volleyball award also went to middle Rachael Adams, who was tabbed the 2016 USA Volleyball Female Indoor Most Improved Player of the Year.
“This award means a lot to me because it represents the journey I’ve been on, the determination I’ve had to have to get to where I want to be and that was to be a complete player so I could help the team in any way that I could during the 2016 Olympics. This award makes me extremely thankful for all the support I’ve had along the way that believed in me and reminded me to working hard and to keep going.” said Rachael.
