2018 All-Midway Team

The 2017-2018 season was a year for the Midway Conference to build and grow.  This year the Midway played the most games they ever had and traveled more than they have ever before.  With that, it bred some tough competition between these teams and led to some stand out players. The following list was chosen by their peers and here are the top 18 players of the Midway.

Here is your 2018 All-Midway Team:

MVP: Tim Ebert (UWP)

This individual did it all for Platteville. Tim would catch when a catch was needed and had an arm to go along with it.  As a captain, he made his presence know on the court and had a killer ball fake.

-Written by Erik Zander

2. Alec Scott (DePaul)

Captain Fluffy, the bearded wonder. I was always amazed on the amount of hair he could grow on his face, a true talent.  This guy was definitely my top player in the Midway Conference.  He threw harder than anyone out there and was an effective communicator on the court.  I always hated going against his throw.  They will be missing him next year on the court.

-Written by Erik Zander

3. Erik Zander (UWP)

Despite battling an injury for part of the season, Erik Zander’s strong play has earned him the #3 spot on this list.  Erik has been a great leader for Wisconsin Platteville over the past few seasons.  He is a big reason why UWP remains atop the Midway Conference each year.  Not only is Erik a dependable player for the Pioneers as both a thrower and catcher, he is also a very important on court presence.
