Jim, you have said in another post the Lancers are your leagues version of the Ny Yankees (due to all the championships). Who is someone that we should look out for in the upcoming season? Is there any clear front runner?

Last year, the Lancers did poorly, finishing third in the "Old League".  During the off-season - my training camp - new, or replacement, bases are assigned to improve certain players' performances.  For the upcoming season (and based on what I've seen in training camp, players I expect will have outstanding years are, #24 (RB) and #44 (CB), Lancers; #85 (WR), #52 (WLB), and #84 (DE), Wildcats; #61 (RT), Hawks; #47 (RB), Titans; #80 (rookie WR), #75 (DE), and #55 (WLB), Thunderbolts; #87 (rookie WR, made from a 'mean 13 QB figure) and #56 (rookie WLB), Panthers; #66 (LG) and #68 (LT), Warriors; #42 (RB) Gladiators.

Of course, this is all subjective and can easily change once the season begins.  Training camp involves teams' offenses going against their own defenses, and has to be only a gauge determining how individual players (bases, really) curve, how much power or speed their bases give them, etc.  I've created different body positions for many players in the off season, mostly by cutting away and repositioning arms.  It will be interesting to see how they work out.  Also, as I've mentioned, I've added a second motor unit and purchased a stopwatch timer to improve play.  THAT will be interesting!
