I nominate John Mark Porter!

Well considering he's not my partner anymore.... I nominate Joshua Folkert. Josh has a great way of making his briefs easy to understand and always has impacts after every card. He may not have the: "I just finished my 60th brief of the year...." but he makes up for it in quality.

I nominate Simon Sefzik. His asylum brief is small, but it packs a punch. Plus, Simon is lots of fun!

I wanna nominate Patton/Rogers (not sure which ones of them do the research :P). Their brief on Signature Strikes is amazing. Definitely the best brief I've run into against that case.

Thomas Lee - While he hasn't had consistent debate success so far this year (although he did just come in 4th at our last qualifier), Thomas is a fantastic researcher. Rarely have I discussed a case with him that he hadn't researched to some degree. Recently, he put together a stellar brief on Arming the Peshmerga, and I've had the pleasure of working with him on building a case or two.

That's nice to know :D.

My Grading rubric:
A+ = 78+, A = 77-73, A- = 72-70, B+ = 79-78, B = 67-63, B- = 62-60, C = 59-55, D = 54-50, F = 49-

I'd like to second the nomination of Jacob Beaver and Brennan Herring. They have a great brief on TNWs and I've also traded for several of their strategy "FRONTLINEs" that are really good. They're cool people too.
1. Quality of Sources:10/10
2. Date of evidence: 9/10
3. Specificity of quotations 9/10
4. Consistency of tags (no power-tagging) 10/10
5. Clean Formatting: 8.5/10
6. Clear Organization of points and evidence: 10/10
7. Size of brief 9/10
8. Coverage of case 9/10
Not all briefs are structured from a Stock Issues & Disadvantages point of view and some of the arguments could use more variety of sources to back them up, but that’s honestly all I could dock them for. -2
BONUS POINTS: Clarity points +3. They map out their arguments very well and it is easy to understand and adapt to them.
Final Grade: 76.5/80 ~ A
