DeAnderson Sabathia Jr., WR, @omgitshim

 

140 GP (S6-S9 Memphis Bandits, S10-S11 Seattle Predators, S12-S15 Memphis Mambas)

724 Catches, 13,738 Yards, 132 TDs, 19.0 YPC

1 Time EFL Champion

2 Offensive Player of the Year

4 Wide Receiver of the Year

4 Kick Returner of the Year

1 Comeback Player of the Year

S6 Rookie of the Year

 

DeAnderson Sabathia Jr. is one of the most obvious choices for the EFL Hall of Fame in recent memory. The do-it-all offensive weapon from Alabama was renowned for his incredible lightness of foot at a slight 6'0" 187 pounds, having been rumored to challenge himself after practice by spending hours chasing stray cats while honing his footwork and efficiency of movement. The brother of Chandominick Sabathia, DeAnderson was selected 2nd overall in the S6 draft by the Memphis Bandits, where he played for the first four years of his career. After the Bandits disbanded, Sabathia Jr. broadened his horizons and teamed up with Nnamdi Okolocha in Seattle, where they pair came within a whisper of winning a championship. Okolocha's surprise retirement left Sabathia Jr. playing with rookie Harlon Connecticut, and he suffered through one of his worst seasons in the EFL. DeAnderson then decided to return home to the new Memphis franchise, where he spent the final four years of his career, bouncing back and setting records while winning his first and only EFL championship in his final season. The decision to return to Memphis was a good one, as he won four consecutive wide receiver of the year awards in his four seasons with the Mambas, including brilliant years in S12 and S15 that included the first and, to this date, only offensive player of the year awards to go to a non-QB/RB. As it stands he is the all-time leader in receiving touchdowns and is one of four players to top 13,000 receiving yards for his career. His prowess extended beyond just receiving however, as he collected hardware for returner of the year four consecutive years as well, matching the mark set by Marcus Johnson. Sabathia Jr. will go down as one of the most complete offensive weapons in league history.

BigHuge McLarge, LB, @TacticalHammer

 

153 GP (S5-S7 Memphis Bandits; S8-S9 New York Herd; S10-S14 Los Angeles Reign; S15 New Orleans Kraken)

1,115 Tackles (58 TFL), 126 Sacks, 7 INT, 80 PD, 13 FF, 10 FR, 1 TD, 3 Safety, 1 Block

1 Time EFL Champion

1 Defensive Player of the Year

1 Linebacker of the Year

 

BigHuge McLarge entered the EFL in the S5 draft class, being drafted by the now-defunct Memphis Bandits. The second player and second Miami Hurricane to be inducted into the EFL Hall of Fame, McLarge was largely a journeyman through his 11 year tenure, playing both for a team that no longer exists and a team that didn't exist when he made his debut for the Bandits. McLarge achieved great personal success in his career, amassing over 1,100 tackles and 125 sacks as well as a defensive player of the year award in S12 when he put up 118 tackles and 14 sacks to go along with 10 TFLs and PDs. BigHuge finally got his big break of team success in S13, when his Los Angeles Reign squad defeated the Miami Neptune, a game in which McLarge came away with a sack. The 6'4" 260 pound behemoth was so skilled that the Reign even utilized him as a kick returner during his time there, but ultimately he will be remembered as one of the most ferocious and complete sideline to sideline linebackers the league has ever seen.
