Michael Boo's top five guard.

We know it's his opinion (possibly), but was surprised 27 didn't make it. Three from the 90's and none for the last decade? Hmmm.

Makes for great discussion. I could see arguements for at least three other guards being in that mix - 27th Lancers, some of the Gary Brubaker Cavies guards, and the early eighties Sal Salas guards of the Madison Scouts. It's almost impossible to compare them, though, because what was/is allowed on the sheets has changed so much over years.

Honorable Mention: The Anaheim Kingsmen rifles of 1972-74. Oh my goodness!

Yes, I would pick some of Steve Brubaker's Cavies guards. Definitely Madison, when Sal was there, too. Others I would consider include 27th, Northstar (1979,80), and several of the 2000s Cavies guards.
