BURBANK — Providence High senior boys' volleyball player Phil Harvey and his counterpart at Burroughs, Daniel Jacobs, used to be teammates while playing for a club team in the San Gabriel Valley.
The two even teamed up playing in the freshman program at Burroughs. But Harvey transferred to Providence after his first season and Jacobs stayed with the Indians.
Harvey and Jacobs enjoyed similar success this past season, leading their respective teams to league championships and earning individual accolades. Harvey, an outside hitter, returned to the Pioneers after taking his junior season off. He was able to make an impact in his return, pacing Providence to a Liberty League title.
For his efforts, Harvey was recognized as the Liberty League Player of the Year.
Joining Harvey in earning all-league accolades were sophomore middle DJ Cabrera, junior setter Brandon Reyes and sophomore opposite Taylor Saldana, who all earned first-team honors.
"It was great playing alongside Daniel," Harvey said of Jacobs. "He's a great player and I respect this ability."
