All-Pro Team Summer 2016
By Sean Dochney
We would like to thank all the Teams, Captains, and Players for playing in the Summer 2016 Season of the JSGFFL. Fall 2016 starts on October 1st.
YOU CAN REGISTER FOR THE FALL 2016 SEASON HERE.
With no further ado, here is your Summer 2016 All-Pro Team
John Zitani – Woodchucks (6-2)
71.9% for 2,840 yards, 10.1 yards/attempt, 45 TDs, 5 interceptions, 136.3 QBR
The Zit had a very impressive season as he led the Woodchucks to a 6-2 record and a shot to win the championship as they will take on the Shockers this weekend. His 2,840 yards was good for most in the league, and his 45 TDs tied him for the league lead with Giuffre. John put up these numbers while only throwing 5 interceptions all season. His QB rating was second to only Guiffre in the league, and 1 point separated them. The Woodchucks are taking on the Shockers in the Championship game, and Zitani is going to need to be at the top of his game if he hopes to hand the Shockers their first loss of the past few seasons.
Shane Capone – Warewolves (4-3-1)
46 catches for 955 yards, 14 TDs
Capone was the best player in the entire JSGFFL this season. He ranked first in every receiving category by a long shot. Nobody could stop Shane this season, and this was highlighted by his Week 5 performance against the Grizzlies when he had 6 catches for 240 yards and 4 TDs. He was the MVP of the Warewolves and was a big reason the Wolves were able to get into the playoffs after a rough start to the season. Shane would also have 2 interceptions for the Wolves on the defense.
Jihad Castro – Rabid Squirrels (6-2)
4 interceptions, 2 defensive TDs
Jihad Castro was a new addition to the Rabid Squirrels this season and the pickup paid off. Castro was the biggest impact player for a very good Rabid Squirrels defense. Castro was tied for the league lead in both interceptions and defensive TDs. His interceptions always seemed to come up big moments for the Squirrels. The Squirrels had a big season this year as they were able to shut up the doubters they had and make it to the playoffs.
Joe Giuffre – Shockers (7-0-1)
72.4% for 2,817 yards, 10.8 yards/attempt, 45 TDs, 6 interceptions, 137.4 QBR
The Shockers went unbeaten again this season with the Guffslinger putting up big numbers at the helm. He ranked in either 1st or 2nd in every QB stat category. It was a real tough decision to leave the Guffslinger off the 1st Team, but the Zit edged him out by throwing 1 less interception and for slightly more yards than Joe. The Shockers will be taking on the Woodchucks in the Championship game on Saturday as Giuffre looks to bring in another JSGFFL Championship.
Billy Belford – French Toast Mafia (3-5)
31 receptions for 725 yards, 10 TDs
2nd team WR came down to a battle between Devon Snead and Billy Belford. Both put up great numbers this season, but Billy has a slight edge over Snead. Belford ranks 2nd to Capone in both yards and TDs. French Toast Mafia had a disappointing season this year as they ended up 3-5 and missed out on the playoffs. They were right in the thick of most games and definitely have the talent to make a playoff push if they stick together next season.
Kevin Kastner – Woodchucks (6-2)
Kevin Kastner led the JSGFFL in sacks this past season with 11. He came on strong in the as 10 of those sacks came after Week 5. The pass rush and defense of the Woodchucks is a major reason why they will be playing in the championship against the Shockers this weekend. If the defense can stop the Shockers just a few times, the Woodchucks may be able to walk away as champions.
