Who will end the season with the most career wins: Elkaffas, Golfin or Comine?
I missed this last week, but UH Hall of Famer Izzy Elkaffas’ Guerrillas got a 70-63 win in the Blommington South Rec League, giving him 462 career wins. That put him into second place on the all-time wins list, passing fellow Hall of Famer Mckinsey Golfin, who lost in the Shelby Open League to keep him at 461.
Last night, both players picked up wins, which keeps Elkaffas one ahead of Golfin. Elkaffas plays in two leagues in Minnesota, while Golfin only plays in one in Michigan, so Elkaffas has a chance to build a comfortable lead heading into the fall season. This is especially true when you consider Elkaffas has a career winning percentage of .663 compared to Golfin’s .639.
Elkaffas only trails fellow Hall of Famer Ryan Jansen, but he has a lot of ground to make up. He’s 180 games behind Jansen, and Jansen has a 5-3 record across Bloomington South and Fridley (not to mention a career winning percentage of .745).
It’s safe to say that Jansen will remain in the top spot for years to come, but it’ll be interesting to see where Elkaffas, Golfin and L.C. Comine end up this season. Comine currently sits at 459 wins, just four behind Elkaffas, and he has a 9-1 record across three leagues this season. He has a career winning percentage of .729 and may be in the driver’s seat to end the summer season with the most wins. Only time will tell.
