Observe. Adapt. Achieve
From XSV Captain Rich Telford: “XSV has always been extremely lucky to have the longtime supporters, fans, staff and family we have and we could never express how much we appreciate them. They have stuck with us through thick and thin from the very beginning, we couldn’t have asked for better loyalty.
Two things that have always been consistent with XSV are heart and drive along with the desire to win and be the best team in the world. It’s no secret that the last two seasons have been very challenging and quite a struggle for us as a team. At the end of the 2014 season, we were notified that our support would no longer continue. We have been working through the situation that has been presented to us and sorting out various options.
We have come to the conclusion that without the support we have had in the past, we cannot compete at our level. So, we have come to the very difficult decision that XSV will not be competing in the 2015 season. We will continue to look for new opportunities to get us back on the field as soon as possible. We will also continue to regroup as a team and look to the future and what it holds for XSV. Again, we appreciate each and every one of you that have continued to supported us.
Rich Telford and the entire XSV family”

“We’re excited to welcome Nick to the 187 cRew” stated team Coach Noel Tran. Tran continued, “We feel his talents and winning experience will help push 187 to be a serious contender in the upcoming season.” Upton 187 Crew finished an extremely competitive 2014 ranked ninth overall in the PSP professional brackets and now heads into their fourth season of professional paintball.
Slowiak voiced his own excitement about joining Upton 187 Crew for 2015. “I have come to enjoy watching 187 play and have gotten to know their owner, Dave Painter, and a few of their players over the course of the last few years. I have witnessed the structure and passion throughout the whole organization and am honored to now be part of it. 2015 is going to be awesome!”
Upton 187 Crew hails from Upton, Massachusetts where they call Fox 4 Paintball home. The team shoots G.I. Sportz 5-Star Imperial paintballs through custom, team-edition Planet Eclipse Geo 3.5 markers and wears VForce Vision Systems Grill goggles equipped with HDR lenses. The team is also sponsored or supported by Preferred Auto, Test Equipment Depot and Truebar Bakery on Main, and supported in the media by PbNation, Social Paintball and PaintballPhotography.
