Soul's Raudabaugh named sixth best AFL Player for 2012

CHICAGO (The Phanatic Magazine) – Throughout the 2012 season, the Arena Football League has been counting down a number of “Top 25” lists to celebrate the League’s Silver Anniversary. The lists have ranged from the “25 Greatest Uniforms in AFL History” to the “25 Greatest Players in AFL History”. The majority of these lists have been voted on by the Silver Anniversary Committee, a group consisting of longtime AFL executives, media members and former players.

The League also wanted to include fans in select voting categories. Subscribers to AFL Field Pass, the official fan club of the Arena Football League, were tasked with deciding upon the Top 25 Players of the 2012 regular season. During Week 19 of the AFL season, the League office collected ballots from members and tallied the votes.

Philadelphia Soul QB Dan Raudabaugh came in sixth place.

Raudabaugh has led the Soul to a 14-3 record, an East Division championship and home field advantage in the postseason. He claimed Philadelphia’s single-season passing records for touchdowns and yards, totaling 110 scores and 4,678 yards through 17 games. He ranks second in the League in yards per attempt (8.9) and third in passing touchdowns and yards per completion (13.3).

Raudabaugh was named Russell Offensive Player of the Week twice in 2012 and earned National Guard MVP of the Week honors in Week 17 after passing for a franchise-record 11 touchdowns. Raudabaugh is a candidate for Russell Offensive Player of the Year and National Guard MVP of the Year.
