League Awards Announced

For the leagues 10th Anniversary, the NEFL has switched things up a bit.  Previously, Each team chose their own All-Stars based on the number of wins they had.  In 2017, each team nominated players from their respective teams; and then representatives from each team met to discuss All-Stars by each position group, followed by a ranking system after the discussion.
Some of the positions were close, so a 2nd ranking was done from the pool of players that just missed the cut; awarding 2 additional All-Star spots for each Division.

The players below are the best at what they do, in arguably one of the best Leagues in the country.
