Jacob Heatherly won a narrow final vote over the likes of Gavin LaValley, Aristides Aquino, and most importantly, Nick Howard.

And with that, we draw our 2018 Community Prospect Rankings to a close. It’s actually a really good year down on the farm, with several lottery ticket types that have tools for days that we didn’t even get to.

We’ll wrap with a comparison of this years list to 2017’s, just to see how much smarter we all are this year. That’s it. We’re all just so much smarter...
