First Published Apr 25 2011 04:54 pm • Last Updated Apr 25 2011 04:54 pm

Provo • BYU middle attacker Futi Tavana has won the inaugural Off-the-Block Blocker of the Year award, which is given to the nation’s best front-row defensive men’s volleyball player during the regular season.

Tavana leads the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation and is second in the nation with a 1.50 blocks per game average. The junior also has a nation-best 160 total blocks this season. Tavana was a 2010 All-American after switching positions from outside attacker to middle attacker before the start of the season.
