Gators volleyball senior Taelor Kellum is now both SEC Player of the Week and SEC Defensive Player of the Week. Kellum received the honors after putting on shows during Florida’s 5-set wins over Texas A&M and Georgia.

The Tennessee native made 17 blocks and 14 kills over the two matches. Kellum’s 12 blocks against Georgia are the senior’s career-high. It is also just the second time in over a year that a Gator recorded 12 blocks in a match. (The last time being September 16, 2017 by Rhamat Alhassan).

Kellum’s meteoric rise looks to be a positive adjustment for the senior who only saw action in eight sets last season.

She currently ranks fifth in the conference in hitting percentage (.348) and sixth in blocks (1.09 per set).

Kellum and the Gators will head to South Carolina for a Friday night match against the Gamecocks. Then, they’ll return back to the Exactech Arena for a Sunday afternoon match against Alabama.
