This week, we have 49 names on the D1 stat freaks list, just one fewer than last week. But even this late in the season, we’re getting new additions, including 18 first timers for this week.
What a week it was! There were some big time performances that have the opportunity to turn around the season for some teams. There were 27 new additions to the old 2018 Stat Freaks roster.
This was a huge week for the old state freaks. Offense and faceoffs really dominated in a way that we haven’t been seeing recently. Well, faceoffs are always strong, but there were some angry players on offense this week.
