Peters is Finalist for Andi Collins Award

Posted on January 13, 2015

Premier 18 Gold's setter, Jess Peters, has been named as a finalist for the 2014 Andi Collins Award given annually by PrepVolleyball.com to the top Senior setter in the nation.

Peters is one of 65 seniors from across the country to be selected as finalists.

In 2014, Jess was named to the All-Nebraska First Team, All-State Class A First Team and All-Metro First Team for Papillion-LaVista. She also was selected to play in the 2015 Nebraska Coaches Association Girls' Volleyball All-Stars match.

She recorded 1,238 assists in 2014 and added 361 digs, 68 blocks and 45 aces in helping her team to an undefeated regular season and the state Class A final.

Andi Collins wanted to be the best setter in the nation. Cancer ended that dream Sept. 4, 2003, a month shy of her 17th birthday. The Andi Collins Award, presented in her honor and memory, recognizes the best senior setter in the nation

Jess is committed to play for Midland University in the Fall.

Xplosive Edge and Premier Volleyball

Designed specifically for Premier Volleyball athletes since 2005, the Xplosive Edge has teamed up with Premier to create the superior power athlete. Trained on site at our "Courts" satellite facility, premier athletes can train immediately before or after practice with X-edge. The Xplosive Edge satellite facility at The Courts is the Midwest's premier training facility for volleyball athletes. Equipped with Power Lift and Hammer Strength equipment, the courts satellite facility is nicer than most of the universities in the nation.

Emphasis is put on increasing strength, balance, agility, and range of motion, all while developing more power. These Premier Volleyball athletes are increasing their vertical jumps while at the same time learning how to jump and land on the ground as well as accelerate and decelerate. Plyometrics are included in our training regimen only when the athlete has become strong enough to control their bodies in space.

The courts training facility is exclusively for the use of the Xplosive Edge in its training of Premier Volleyball. Premier Volleyball is one of the nations best volleyball clubs and is on the rise. Since the inception of Xplosive Edge working with Premier Volleyball, Premier has increased its winning percentage by over 66% all while decreasing the injury rate by over 88%. This last year Premier Volleyball sent 8 teams to the USA volleyball championships!

Premier athletes are trained twice a week (45 min. sessions) right before or after their practice. Each athlete is pre and post performance tested to see their own individual performance index score created by Boyd Epley of Epic Athletic Performance.

This is Premier Volleyball!


We have the focus, drive, passion, character, discipline, confidence, power, determination and HEART!!!!! This is Premier Volleyball.....
