DIAA Fall Top 50 Backs

Goff Rugby Report has released its top 50 backs of the DIAA fall season.

These players were picked from the teams that have played significant game time in the fall. We used all-conference selections, plus assessments from coaches, Bowl Series and playoff performances, and statistics to come up with this list. We were looking to keep the list at 50, but in the end have 74 players listed. Not surprisingly, four Notre Dame College backs get the nod. 

All in all, 33 schools are represented in this list. Players are listed by position, and not ranked within this top 50. (We've updated the list because of a late announcement of all-conference players)
