FloRugby has completed our Hot Lists for boys high school rugby players for the past season, and we're capping it off with a list of players we should have mentioned.

No excuses. Our missing of Ty Carlson and Tom Stockton at scrumhalf was a case of us trying to showcase some off-the-beaten-path players, and we omitted some obvious guys. The same goes for the three props, really. Nate Turak was on our list but for the wrong position, so he shows up here. We also got a few suggestions.

Most of our Hot List players come from California, but as we go forward we'd like to change that. To do so, we need the help of readers and coaches, especially those coaches who are impressed with players from other teams. It's unfortunate that we saw less than 50 percent participation in supplying rosters from the Regional Cup Tournaments, and that is an excellent way to get players recognition.

So have a look at our Hot Lists and see the list of players we missed.

And watch out for our Player of the Year award coming soon.

MLR Nationality Breakdown By Position: New England Freejacks

New England Free Jacks

The other day I was thinking about fly-halves in the MLR -- since that is my position -- and I got to thinking how few American players there are playing fly-half in Major League Rugby. The only ones I could think of off the top of my head were Ben Cima (SEA), Scott Dean (SEA), Tadgh Leader (NE) and Zinzan Elan-Puttick (AUS) -- and it's worth noting that both Leader and Elan-Puttick grew up playing rugby in Ireland and South Africa respectively.
