Huge Move by Denver in Crackers Front Range League

December 16, 2013

It was a week to remember for Joe Scott’s Denver Pioneers as they scored two famous victories over local rivals Colorado State and Wyoming. Junior guard Brett Olson led the way in both games, averaging 23.5 points on 16-29 shooting from the field and 13-13 from the line. Last week, I proclaimed Spencer Dinwiddie the CFRL Player of the Year. That may have been premature as Olson has thrown his hat into the ring this week. I’ll be watching both of you closely Mr. Dinwiddie,and Mr. Olson. Any slip-up,and you,may be throwing away the coveted CFRL Player of the Year Award.

And the Coach of the Year battle is also up for grabs between Scott and Tad Boyle. Joey Naismith has a little bit of a lead in this regard as he doesn’t refer to fellow CRFL rivals as “little brother”. Or exhibit behavior counter to his rhetoric. He just coaches his team to win games. Since I’m the sole arbiter in this, I want it known that my vote can be bought.

With the win, Denver has concluded their CFRL season at 2-0. It’s too bad that they weren’t able to schedule any more games against local rivals to have a shot at matching or beating the University of Colorado’s 3-0 record.

Maybe a behind close doors cage match with CU can be arranged.

Current CFRL Standings

1. Colorado. 3-0
2. Denver 2-0
3. Colorado State 1-2
4. Air Force 0-1
5. Northern Colorado. 0-1
6. Wyoming. 0-2

The last remaining OC matchup in the CFRL takes places on December 22nd when Northern Colorado visits the Pimple on the Prairie. After that, only MWC conference games between Air Force, CSU, and Wyoming are scheduled.
