After significant deliberation and discussion, the Pittsburgh All-Americans have decided to no longer compete in the NPPL and the seven man format. In a period in which teams are quickly becoming more competitive and the necessary efforts are required to be a top contender, the NPPL has befallen to an afterthought for the All-Americans. In 2008, the team has competed in the NXL, the Millennium Series and the NPPL. Nonetheless, the team has recently chosen to concentrate its entire efforts on the X-ball format as this method of focus will hopefully allow the All-Americans to become more competitive in two leagues rather than splitting duties among three. However, some of the Pittsburgh players will continue to guest with other organizations for the remaining 2008 NPPL season. The All-Americans wish only the best of regards to the league and the teams.
