‘Riders Fantasy Football

Football training camps are underway across the country which means it’s time for fans to dust off their computers and draft fantasy football teams. Frisco pitcher Ross Wolf has played for the past eight seasons and plans on playing in three leagues this season.

“I draft differently for each league depending on the point system,” Wolf said. “I don’t really have a strategy going in but I pick the best players that I can from what’s available.

The highest he’s ever finished in a league was second. He placed fourth last year which he said was a miracle after the team he started with.

“I drafted Peyton Manning in the third round,” Wolf said. “Then he got hurt and I had to make some key trades last year.”

We asked him which RoughRiders he would put at each position if they were a football team.

“Olt is definitely a running back. Our tight end would be maybe Hoying. Profar would be either a wide receiver or cornerback. Princey would be our quarterback. Zaneski is a linebacker and I think Leury Garcia would be a running back too because he’s got the build,” Wolf said.

We also went to Jared Prince, one of Frisco’s outfielders who was also an all-state quarterback in high school. Then we talked to the RoughRiders’ Strength and Conditioning Coach Eric McMahon. Here are their picks.
