As we finally near the end of another year, we wanted to take a look back at some of the top performances of the year that was 2020. So we give to you our PBR Maryland Leaderboard. For these players to qualify, they had to be at a PBR Maryland affiliated event (Including Team PBR, PBR Future Games, Scout Days, and Mid-Atlantic Procase). 

In this installment we take a look at the top curveball peak spin rates  

(Note: These are the spin rates players achieved at an event in Maryland. Some players may have improved their numbers at another state event or tournament. Click on the player to see their profile and learn more about each.
