Boys’ Volleyball Preview: Long Beach Poly Jackrabbits

The last time Long Beach Poly won the Moore League, in 2016, they featured one of the best players in the country in Sam Lewis. This year’s Jackrabbit squad doesn’t have a monster recruit like Lewis, but they do feature six players of at least six-foot, and they have some impressive firepower, as well as plenty of intensity and grit.

A lot of that will come from captain Andrew Tigas, likely the best libero in the league this year.

“We’re better this year than last year, we’re still working on figuring out what we look like,” said Poly coach Vuthy Cheav.

Cheav’s son Nathan, a sophomore, will be setting this year, and he’ll have plenty of options.

Jake and Sam Miller, no relation, will be big options at 6’4”, along with sophomore opposite Robert Jones (6’3”).

“We’re big, we just have to play aggressive,” said Cheav.
