    Default Lackawanna acquires 1.1; selects Wesson as new Franchise Quarterback

    Lackawanna chooses Wesson to Lead Franchise
    --Associated Press


    SCRANTON -- The Lackawanna Coal Crackers have acquired the first overall pick in the 2032 FOFL Amateur Draft and will select quarterback Louie Wesson to be its new face for the franchise. To acquire Wesson, the Coal Crackers dealt the 4th, 35th, and 41st overall picks in the 2032 draft, as well their 2033 1st round pick, to the Village Vanguard.

    After a string of playoff appearances and championship runs stretching from 2020 to 2030, Lackawanna hit a rough patch in 2031 finishing with a 3-13 record. The Coal Crackers slide into rebuilding coincided with the retirement of QB Sammie Mueller, an FOFL Legend and reguarded as one of the best quarterbacks to ever play in the FOFL. Now a quarterbacks coach for Lackawanna, Mueller is expected to help Wesson fill some pretty big shoes as the next Coal Cracker franchise quarterback.

    Wesson, who played college football at the University of Illinois, graded out as the 9th best draft-eligible quarterback over in 28 years of FOFL history. In fact, Wesson's prospect grade (7.0) is the highest for any FOFL Quarterback since Van McDaniel was drafted by Myrtle Beach in 2023.

    Lackawanna opens the 2032 season by hosting Smuggler's Cove. Tickets are still available to see Mr. Wesson's FOFL debut at the Lackawanna box office.

    Heh. Funny part is MP initiated the trade conversation and I was totally content with sitting at 1.4 and choosing between the CB or WR.

    Illinois has quite a good crop of fake college players eligible for the draft.
