Jon Richardson is perhaps one of the most underrated players in the history of the game. Often the most critical player on his team, his humble and quiet demeanor often kept him out of the spotlight. But, his game breaking moves, consistent pressure, and athleticism put him at the forefront of his opponents minds for two decades of pro paintball. Jon was one of the best in the game at reading paint in the air, finding an opening, and taking half the opposing team off the field with him. He was also a best in class gunfighter during a time when gun dominance reigned supreme in the sport. Winning world championships with multiple teams across multiple eras was just another accolade added to a long list of wins for Jon. He was one of the modern archetypes for how the “2” position plays the game; at any time he could become an elite attacker, or regain positioning for his team from the back line when their guard was breached. He best personifies the style of a silent star, always letting his play do the talking.
