With the Star-Advertiser’s boys volleyball all-state team coming out Sunday, here is a look at a few of the past All-State teams, beginning in 1988 when Steven Corbelli of Punahou was the best player in the land. The Buffanblu had the next two players of the year in Rick Humphreys and Stein Metzger before Kamehameha took over with the next four including Fred Robins, who was the only boy to repeat in the decade.

Kamehameha and Punahou had all of the players of the year in the 1990s. Tomorrow we will post 2000-2009 and 2010 to last year will follow on Saturday.
