Player of the Week: September 26, 2016

Each week of the spring and fall seasons, one player who was originally reported as a recruit by AVSR Global is named Player of the Week for an exceptional performance.

Fall Week #5: Gala Galabova

Central Connecticut State University, Northeast Conference, NCAA-I.
Reported to subscribers in 2016 by AVSR Global.
Home:  Pazardzhik, Bulgaria.
Freshman, 6'3" Opposite/Outside Hitter.
See Gala Galabova’s bio at the Central Connecticut website.

Last Week:

• Central Connecticut jumped atop the Northeast Conference as Galabova was a key to two road victories on the league’s opening weekend.
• The Blue Devils won 3-2 at Robert Morris and Saint Francis (Penn.).
• Galabova, a freshman, scored 21 kills and seven blocks. She closed strong in the fifth set of each victory. She opened the season as an instant starter.

Excerpt from 2016 AVSR Global report:

“An elite, mature player with the skills and size to play immediately at RH or LH. … She isn’t an explosive athlete or fiery competitor, but she’s steady and clean. … Smooth, high swinger. Back-row attacking is a strength.”
