OH: Outside (left side) or Opposite (right side) Hitter. Hitters are the primary scorers, usually having the final of three contacts with the volleyball. When a spike is scored, it is called a “Kill.”
S: Setter. Setters are the equivalent of football quarterbacks or basketball point guards. Normally, they set up the attack for the hitters, but can perform a “dump shot” by stealthily sending the ball over the net.
MB: Middle Blocker. Middle blockers, sometimes called a Middle Hitter, controls the middle portion of the net.
DS: Defensive Specialist. Players with solid digging skills and passing skills – essentially ball control to defend against the opposing team’s attacks.
L: Libero. Specialized player, with certain rules and limitations (e.g. wear a different colored jersey, can’t block, can’t set in the front of the 10-foot line), and their own substitution system. Liberos are similar to Defensive Specialists, who are focused on defensive skills such as digs, back-row hitting, and passing the volleyball. The Libero position was added to Texas public school volleyball by the UIL in the 2005 season (UIL Leaguer, Jan. / Feb. 2005).
