Volleyball Middle Blocker

On offense, the middle is considered a hitter, and on defense, they are considered a blocker. They are often the third and last person to touch the ball in a possession. The middle is a key defensive player on the court. The middle is often moving from sideline to sideline and is usually pretty tall.
