It’s one the areas best kept secrets.
The Alleghany Mountain Baggers cornhole team.
Last weekend, the team competed at the World’s Tournament where they left with success as the team added a new pro status to their team.
Justin Gibson, finished 49th overall at the World’s Tournament as he made the cut to earn his pro status.
There are multiple way to earn your pro status; finish in the top 80 in the standings for the year (September-May 31st), and or finish in the top 96 in the world tournament, which Gibson did.
The Alleghany Mountain Baggers list of pro status players continues to grow. Gibson is now the teams ninth player to earn his pro status and the sixth this season alone.
Gibson joins the Alleghany Mountain Baggers list of pro rankings that include;
Chad Chesnut – ACO seasons 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, and 19 pro
Adrian Johnson – ACO Seasons 15 and 16 Pro and current ACL pro

“Justin has played with us since about 2019. Each year he has gotten better. I was extremely proud when I got the phone call that he did it. I wasn’t able to make it to worlds this year. Our group has watched Justin go from a beginner all the way to a Pro player”, said Pro Status Player, Chad Chestnut on Gibson.
In a future article, we’ll have pro status player, Chestnut explain more about the areas best kept secret as well as explaining about the pro status and how long it lasts for.
This September the team starts the ACO season 18. Players like Gibson will start the season off as a pro.
