Jimbo’s a Two-Time Player of the Year (2018 and 2019) and a perennial ass-kicking All-Star.

While Jim has the last pick in this year’s draft, be sure that he’s been thinking about his 2020 team long before the last shoe was thrown in 2019. We’d all be lucky to be a member of Jim’s team – although it must be said that his own son doesn’t want to be one of them.

Shaun’s coming into 2020 Season with the same teeth-gnarling intensity he brings to any $5 pickup game. He strives to bury his opponents below the pits on a weekly basis, and if you’re fortunate enough to beat the contending team he’ll assuredly be putting together – it’s his teammates you’ll be feeling sorry for.

Shaun’s been thinking long and hard about getting back in POY form in 2020. If he drafts you, it’s because you’re worthy of the spot.

Brandon set out in 2019 to prove he’s worthy to be a top player in the Smash Saturday Summer League and in 2019 he did just that.

Finishing third in Total Ringers (230) and a 65.52 Winning Percentage, B-Tep showed that he is not only ready of taking a team to the top, he’s more than capable.

What sets Johnny apart from the rest of the players in the League is the extra Chromosome he was born with. It’s impossible for him to be out-worked in this league. When he wins, he’ll shake your hand and go home to practice, when he loses he’ll shake your hand, go inside, get drunk and then go home to practice.

We know what you’re saying, “I work hard. I practice. I want to win just as much as Johnny.”

O Yeah? Answer this question: When was the last time you lapped up an entire horseshoe pit full of gallons of water with a single sponge?

We keep hearing that Steve’s just at good as Horseshoes as he is at Darts. While that certainly sets a high bar, what we are sure of is that Steve’s set to take a team deep into the playoffs in 2020 – if the Blackberry Brandy holds out.

Joe Williams’ special gift is that he knows exactly who he’s going to have on his team in 2020. While the draft may or may not go his way, there are two things that are certain – the three players he’s targeted may or may not be with him this year and that his team name will have the word “Pink” in it.

The patriarch of the Tepper Clan, Joe’s the most recent Smash Saturday champion on this list. While that should be enough for anyone, he’s also managed not to strangle any of his sons – a gargantuan feat if there ever was one.

Derek’s all-court game and versatile style of play involve exceptional footwork and shot-making. His apparent effortlessness and efficient movement on the court makes Derek highly popular among horseshoe fans. Having co-founded Smash Saturday in 1996, he is its Summer League’s Commissioner.

Finally – as if there was not much more that could be written about this truly fine gentlemen – his personal hygiene is beyond reproach.
