Sacramento XSV is setting the stage for another successful year in the pro paintball circuit. The team recently picked up Jason and Corey Bornstein from Oakland BLAST. The Hebrew Hammers as they are known, previously played with Ballistic and XSV Influence in divisional paintball. Later they worked there way up  into the semi professional world and played with the OC Bushwackers, San Diego Aftermath and Newport Entourage. The two are known to feast on the field and will be solid additions to the team.

Also in the news, Patrick Slattery is said to be returning to the team. Pat played with XSV from 2008-2010 and then joined San Francisco Explicit in 2011.

The question remains as to whether or not the team will be competing in one or both of the pro paintball leagues in 2012. Prior to the merger rumors, XSV’s Junior Brown mentioned a sincere interest in playing the PSP in conjunction with the NPPL in 2012. Team owner Rich Telford has been known to been a devout 7-man supporter. However, with the NPPL format adopting more of an Xball structure, who knows where the team will end up.

What format would you like to see XSV play in 2012?


Playing regularly since 1997. Competed in local, regional, national and international paintball series. Founded and lead Long Beach State to a National Collegiate Championship victory. Proudly banned from the NPPL after legitimately winning a 5 on 1. Have since made it a hobby to promote paintball and at the same time make a point to call out paintball industry shenanigans and those that intentionally impede the growth of paintball. Welcome to
