Justin "J-Rab" Rabackoff
Birthdate: October 6, 1988
Hometown: Washington DC
Pro Experience: 4 years
Total Years Playing: 11 years

I got involved in my paintball because of my Dad, Steve Rabackoff – legendary, old school, original Avalanche paintball player and Coach. I was lucky enough to be around some of the great paintball players as I grew up, watching and learning from the best. In 1998, I played in my first event with a team called Ham & Cheese – the Great Western Series at Camp Pendleton in San Diego. In 2004, I started my first true Xball team - D.C Devastation. Coached by my dad. My brother, Brandon Rabackoff also played with me. We won our 1st event in 2005!

At the end of 2005, D.C Devastation broke up. I went on to try out for and made the team - Sacramento XSV. I played with XSV at a time when they were one of the best teams in the world. World Cup 2005 was my first tournament playing with them. We finished second place to dynasty. The following year I joined Team Infamous. That was a great time in my career.

In 2007, I did something most pro players would not do I went back down to Division 2 to play with Team Nasty. My dad was coaching and my brother was playing on the team. I got to take a year off from being a pro. I was able to play with my friends and my brother. Taking a step back to play with Nasty helped me work on my leadership ability.

At the end of 2007, I received a chance to tryout for the Russian Legion. I was one of ten players competing for three positions. I earned a spot on the team playing the snake side. I was off to a slow start in 2008. I was trying to learn the Russian Legion’s winning skills. I continued to work hard. My hard work paid off, I made the first team in the middle of the year. I was also playing in the NPPL 7-man series with D.C Arsenal Evolution, semi-pro 7-Man team. In the two years that I played with DC Arsenal, we won seven out of nine events.

Splat Magazine named me the “2009 Paintball Player of the Year.” I also made their “Ultimate 7-man team.” These are amazing awards that were only possible with the help and support of my many talented teammates.

In 2010, I joined Tampa Bay Damage for the NPPL 7-man series. I also joined Frankfurt Syndicate for the European Millennium series. I currently play with the Russian Legion for PSP Xball’s “Race to 7.”

My successful career and accomplishments are only possible because of the continued support and encouragement from the many people in my life: Jon Richardson, Rusty Glaze, Sergey Leontiev, Brian Fow, Kevin Rudulph, Tom Fore,G-no Benedicto, my Russian Legion coaches, Nicky Cuba, Alex Fraige, Ryan Greenspan and most importantly my dad.
