I just went over to take a look at the final PGCrosschecker and the Luray Wranglers dropped from 3RD to 4TH in the final poll and Waynesboro moved up from #22 to #20. Having two teams finish in the top 20 in the country goes a long way in giving the 2008 VBL season some nationwide credibility.
The poll lists a couple of key facts about the club and this weeks players were Travis Smink (VMI) and Alex Wimmers (Ohio State) for Luray while Adam Liberatore (Tenn Tech) and Brandon Sizemore (C of C) make the list for Waynesboro. The other team of note from the poll is the Vienna Senators of the Clark Griffith League. The Sens came down to Luray as the #1 seed in the country back in July when the faced both Waynesboro and Luray in a split double header.
Vienna finished #16 after ending the year at 41-14 following their 22-1 start. The Sens went 19-13 over the back half of their schedule not counting the UN-official twin bill defeats at the hands of Luray (12-4) and Waynesboro (1-0)
