One player on the team has a different color jersey because they are the libero.

That person can only play the back row, never the front. They go into the back row for anybody on the team without them using a substitution.

Why does one volleyball team member wear a jersey of a different color than the rest of the team?

Volleyball VarietyThe wearer of a different-colored jersey is called the libero. This is a defense specialist, who is really good at passing and digging. A libero can't serve in high school volleyball, but he can serve in college volleyball. The reason why his shirt is a different color is to identify him when he goes on and off the court. A libero can also "sub" for anyone on the court.
