Funchion kicked off his 2018/19 R48 8 season with an 11th place finish in the 2018 R48 8 Atlanta in October, losing to Marcos Chavez in the round of 16 and dropping a close 9th place semifinal match to fellow Next Gen Star Max Langmack.
Funchion nearly upset Daniel Cordova in the NYAC R48LTE two weeks after San Francisco, dropping a close tiebreaker. The seventh place finish at the NYAC tied Fuchion with Leo Canales, Jr. for the top stop on the Next Gen leaderboard.
Funchion was honored after the R48 Men’s Pro Final in Salt Lake City. Surrounded by a more than a dozen R48, WR48, and SR48 stars, Funchion emphatically proclaimed, “I’ll be in the top 8 next season!”
Look for Funchion and his Next Gen peers to start climbing the R48 Power Rankings in the near future.
