NOMINEES FOR Dorito Player of the Year
Konstantin Fedorov, Houston Heat.
Konstantin Fedorov was nothing short of dominate this season on the dorito side of the field. He has consistently been one of the most creative and versatile attackers down that side of the field and it showed during his event win and MVP performance at the Mid Atlantic Major this season. During that event he was virtually unstoppable and he seemingly eliminated opponents at will. His ability to probe and prod to find every opening in an opponents guard has helped build his legendary status as not only the greatest non-US player in paintball history, but perhaps one of the best ever.
Jesse Stephens, San Antonio XFactor.
Jesse has been one of the hardest working players in the league since he joined the pro ranks with XFactor in 2012 and he has become a consistent and relentless attacker down the dorito side for San Antonio. Jesse is incredibly athletic and is always looking to put pressure on the opposition early on in the game. Throughout the 2021 season, Jesse was one of the best dorito players in the league in regards to survivability, and the level of reliability he had provided for XFactor on that side of the field will be increasingly important with the roster moves that have happened this offseason.
Greg Siewers, Los Angeles Infamous.
For the entirety of his career, Greg Siewers has been a fearsome and relentless attacker at all levels of the field, and 2021 was no different for the Infamous star. He started the year as one of the leagues best offensive players in the center of the field at the Sunshine State Major, but quickly gravitated to his natural position in the doritos as the season went on. He was one of the most reliable points of attack for an Infamous team that finished the year second overall, and placed in the top five at three out of four events. Greg made the decision to hang up his cleats and pursue his successful fitness career after World Cup, and we are so thankful to Greg for all the great years of paintball he played in the pro division.
Chris Schehr, Baltimore Revo.
Chris Schehr has been a revelation for Baltimore Revo this year on the dorito side of the field. Arguably one of the most skilled pure-dorito players in the World, Chris stepped up for his program after early injuries and personnel issues. He had one of the best breakout seasons we have seen in recent memory. His incredible poise in the way he plays the dorito side of the field, and his patient yet brutal style pushed him to near MVP levels in Chicago. Revo looks like a legitimate contender for the 2022 season and much of that is behind the new found success they have on the dorito side of the field with Chris.
Justin Cornell, Edmonton Impact.
Although Edmonton Impact tends to lean towards a committee approach to the dorito side of the field, Justin Cornell was superb for them throughout the year as their starter on the dorito side. He was arguably one of the best players of the event in Chicago during the prelims for Impact, and his consistently high level of performance both at the Sunshine State Major, and the Mid-Atlantic Major helped Impact to secure an event win and a third place overall ranking on the season. Justin can go nuclear at any moment on the field, and the big-play ability he provides for Impact has been a critical piece of their historic run over the last decade. The future is still bright for the Edmonton program, and Justin will be a critical piece for them for years to come.
