Ultiworld’s 2018 Club Awards are presented by Greenbackr, a custom crowdfunding platform from Savage; all opinions are those of the authors. Please support the brands that make Ultiworld possible and utilize Greenbackr!

The club season is over and provided plenty of surprises and interesting takeaways. We’ve spent this week honoring and celebrating the division’s top individuals this year. These awards are decided by a team of editors, reporters, and analysts, who look at a number of factors. Not everyone agrees, and wth so much talent in the division, there are invariably players you could make a case for who get left off.

We asked our staff for not only their top snubs, but also who would make up their Third Team. On top of that, we asked for some other ways to look back at the season’s best.

Snubs

Emily Shields (Philadelphia AMP)

It seems odd to say that Emily Shields, a 2016 All-Club First Teamer, is somehow underappreciated, but here we are. Go back and watch any Philadelphia AMP game this year, and you’ll see Shields in the middle of it all. She scored 20 goals this season for AMP, showing off impeccable timing on her upline cuts and being a reliable handler for the Philadelphia offense. For someone with as many touches as she got, Shields only got dinged for three turnovers on the year. That kind of efficiency at the elite level is rare, and that reliability let her teammates on the AMP O-line be that much more aggressive.
