BYU's Price Jarman spikes the ball past Connor Drake as they and UCSB play an NCAA Volleyball game at the Smith Field house in Orem on Friday, Feb. 2, 2018. The Guachos won 3-0.

Senior middle blocker Price Jarman was named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation/Molten Defensive Player of the Week, the organization announced Monday.

Jarman helped BYU men’s volleyball secure a pair of road sweeps last week on the defensive end.

Against a record-setting crowd at Grand Canyon, he put up a match-best seven blocks — three more than anyone else on the court. Jarman also added two digs in the win.

Then, in a sweep of Concordia Irvine, he contributed a season-high-tying and match-best eight blocks (just one shy of his career high) and two digs. He also added seven kills in the match and didn’t have a single hitting error in either match.

This is the first MPSF honor of the season for Jarman and fourth for BYU as a team. Miki Jauhiainen was previously named MPSF Defensive Player of the Week, and Gabi Garcia Fernandez and Brenden Sander have each earned MPSF Offensive Player of the Week accolades this season.

Royce Hinton is the men's and women's volleyball sports information director for BYU Athletic Communications.
