Trotter League-Week 6

Week 6 in our Trotter League proved to be a week of stability as teams pushed to remain steadfast in their position in the standings. In the end, only three teams, Country Boy, Melph52, and John’s Team changed positioning. Even our first and second place teams rest comfortably on top despite being defeated this week. Week 7, however, should be interesting: 4 of the 6 match-ups are battles between teams with identical records.

Here is the complete list of the 2013 Trotter League teams, 10 of which are owned by Globetrotters stars:

Big Easy Lofton: Melph52

Moose Weekes: Gutcheckerz

Flight Time Lang: Three Peat Flight

Slick Willie Shaw: Ill Will’s Team

Special K Daley: Panama

Handles Franklin: Handles Is Cold Fam

Bones Millien: AJ Millien’s Team

Ant Atkinson: Country Boy

Spider Wilks: Darnell’s Team

Jet Williams: John’s Team
