LAS VEGAS - Aug. 15, 2023 - PRLog -- SlamBall announced today the individual award winners for its return season, and, as expected, the undefeated Mob dominated the selections. Mob stopper and team captain Gage Smith (Elizabeth, Colo.) was named SlamBall League: Series 6 Most Valuable Player and Defensive Player of the Year. The Wrath's Ty McGee (Littleton, Colo.) earned Offensive Player of the Year honors, while the Mob's Brendan Kirsch (Indianapolis, Ind.) was tabbed Coach of the Year and Mob gunner Cam Hollins (Avon, Ind.) was selected 5th Man of the Year.

Joining Smith and McGee on the All-SlamBall First Team were Mob gunner Darius Clark (Blue Springs, Mo.) and Slashers handler Tony Crosby II (Long Beach, Calif.). The All-SlamBall Second Team features Gryphons' gunners KyShawn Jones (Danville, Va.) and Justin Holmes (Roseville, Calif.), Mob handler Cameron Horton (Jacksonville, Ala.) and Buzzsaw stopper Tyquan Scott (Long Beach, N.Y.).

"It was clear when we opened training camp back in June that we had assembled the most talented group of players that we've ever had, and at that time I was certain we would create superstars during this summer run. That's exactly what happened," said Mason Gordon, SlamBall's creator and CEO. "The players honored today are among the finest we've seen in the sport's history, providing an incredibly robust foundation to continue growing the sport. I can't say enough about the spectacular job Coach Kirsch did with the Mob this season. He was able to get the most out of every player on his roster within the framework of his team's system. The results speak for themselves. When I look at the list of individuals we honored today, I could not be more excited about SlamBall's future."
