Awards are nice but the respect of your family/peers is what it's all about. Phil and Taylor certainly deserve these accolades but so do our other great beach volleyball clients who bust their ass every day to represent their family, country and sport!

Premier Management Group (PMG Sports) is proud to announce U.S. beach volleyball stars Phil Dalhausser and Taylor Crabb have been recognized as two of the top performers on the AVP Tour in 2015. This week, Dalhausser was crowned the AVP Tour's Best Blocker and Taylor Crabb took home the award for Newcomer of the Year.

After battling through injuries early in the season, Dalhausser joined forces with former teammate and 2014 AVP Tour Best Defender Nick Lucena to go on an incredible run that included a Manhattan Beach Open title and 2 FIVB Gold Medals. Dalhausser and Lucena played their best volleyball late in 2015 and have already gotten a head start on Olympic qualifying for next year with a win in the FIVB World Tour's first official tournament of the 2016 season this October.

The Crabb brothers have officially arrived. After older brother Trevor won the award in 2014, Taylor is keeping it in the family as the AVP Tour's best new player on the men's side. Taylor and Trevor notched a 3rd place finish at the Manhattan Beach Open in their first AVP event as partners and won their first professional tournament this month.

PMG Sports President and CEO Evan Morgenstein said, “Awards are nice but the respect of your family and peers is what it's all about. Phil and Taylor certainly deserve these accolades but so do our other great beach volleyball clients who bust their ass every day to represent their family, country and sport! Cheers to all of them for an incredible 2015!”
