I'm not quite sure if champion cabling installers have groupies, but if they did, 2016 Installer of the Year winner Alberta Luna's would have to be called the Luna-tics.

Luna defended his title this week at the annual BICSI Winter conference in Orlando, topping a field of 15 competitors and taking home the $5,000 prize and extra big trophy. During an interview with me last week, Luna said the secret to his success has been relaxing, something he's learned to do through competing in the event four times now.

I caught Luna in action this year and he definitely had his game face on. When it comes to cable termination, fusion splicing and plain old exam smarts, this guy is definitely at the top of his game.
