The Mid-Missouri Outlaws and Kansas Koyotes were the two teams that did not garner player recognition. Several Mid-Missouri Outlaws players recently said that they were told the Outlaws will be switching leagues by the team's management, although no official announcement has been made to the public yet.  The owners have indicated they are still looking at all options.

The CPIFL had an impressive first season and they are expecting to announce some expansion in the near future. Congratulations to all the players recognized throughout the league.
