Another Vote for Jason Matthews.
I first got to know him back in 2013 in Dallas where he pitted with XSV.
Really good, stand up dude and I am happy to vouch for him as deserving of this honor.

After reading the thread, may I suggest it be a person nominated by someone who’s been on pbnation a year or two or ten

On a less cheeky note: I’m sure it will be a positive force in someone’s life, and this is all very nice. I can’t wait to read the story of the person selected

Nominating my good friend Andrew Reeve

First off, thank you Planet Eclipse, Virtue & Powerhouse for doing something this awesome!

Andrew is a very deserving person for this prize and is without a doubt the kind of person that would love to be in the position to give this marker to another deserving soul down the line.

Andrew has been a single father for almost the entirety of his daughters life (shes now 7). Not only raising her himself but also spending endless time and BIG money on legal fees and meetings trying to protect his daughter from her druggie mother (literally years of legal battles). He just recently got married to an awesome and supportive women which is AMAZING both for him and his daughter but obviously comes with a whole other set of expensive bills.

His wife is great friends with my wife and about a year ago, Andrew came to our house for the first time. It wasn't long before he spotted my paintball collection on display and our friendship was immediately solidified. He used to play all the time (both rec & local tournaments) and loved the sport but had to sell everything when baby mommy decided that her addictions took priority over her child and he made the choice to get his daughter out of that situation at any cost. He hadn't played in years, so i insisted he use some of my gear and we get out on the field.

At first he was reluctant to borrow my gear. Partially because he didn't know me well yet but mostly because he's the kind of person that would worry too much about damaging somebody else's belongings while out playing. After using some aggressive negotiation (literally took my loaner Etek 3 LT off the wall display and dropped it on the ground) before i was able to convince him that i buy my paintball gear to be used for fun, not to obsess about it and freak out over a scratch or ding. As long as he showed respect and had a great time, i could careless if my gun came back with a little scratch from play.

We laughed about it and he finally agreed to use my gear and get out on the field. Needless to say we had an absolute blast and he fully caught the bug again. Since then he has played with me whenever he has the chance. Hes still using my loaner gear and trying his best to put some money to the side for his own set up but obviously his wife, child and lawyer all come first without a doubt.

If he got this setup, it would not only be the catalyst for his full return to the sport but also an amazing way to welcome back a member of our community who only left due to hardship and financial inability.

Thanks again to PE, Virtue, Powerhouse and PBnation for the consideration and opportunity!

-Logan

One of my good friends, Dean Jones, had his entire house (which included his paintball set up) burned in the California fires this past year. He also just had a baby girl named Wren, so he and his wife had to put all their funds towards building their life back up again (Insurance didn't cover everything). We still talk about paintballing everyday, and how when he finally gets some time (and money realistically), how we were going to get him back up and running. I know he would be surprised, amazed and very thankful to receive this amazing set up from some amazing companies. He would also be happy to continue to pass the setup on to the next deserving soul, so they can feel the joy you guys bring to our community. Thank you for always doing some good in the paintball community, to PBNation, Planet Eclipse, Virtue and Powerhouse.

I am really humbled to see my friends come out and say such nice things about me and of course appreciative of my wife thinking of me. During reading different post and talking with friends I was reminded that a friend of ours is much more in need and had a trully tough year. Jordan Gassaway who lives in central Texas had his house burn down this year and was left with nothing more than what was on his person and in his truck. He is a member of the Aztec paintball family, has been a NXL referee, a local ref for Gizmo Guru in the Waco, Texas area, and I have personally watched him let a little one who wasnt old enough to play fire off a few rounds at him and a fellow ref so she didnt feel like she was left out of the day with her older brothers. If he is chosen for the person to recieve the marker I know it will go to good use and I personally will provide his loader, tank, pack and pods to get him back in the game with his boys in 2020. I gladly will give up consideration for Jordan Gassaway or hell anyone who has faced the adversity of losing so very much and can still keep getting up every morning and going forward. Lets do this paintball fam.

Im not usually one to write a sob story, but my buddy Matt Griffith would be a good candidate for this. Recently was in a bad car accident where he broke both his ankles, collar bone, multiple torn ligaments and has pretty bad bruising on his face. He spent Christmas in the hospital, currently doesn't have a gun, and now has to miss the first couple events of 2020 until he's able to walk again. Would love to give him something to bring some joy during the holiday season and help him get back on the field as he goes through rehab and tries to get back in time for the Vegas event.

Thanks to everyone who commented. This will be difficult to choose but it's time to close this down and get someone their new gun setup. Stay tuned this might take some time since people sent messages, posted on IG and posted on our FB too with nominations...

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
