Name a recent book, movie, tv show, or video game you enjoyed. The Office

If you had a walk out song, what would it be? All I Do Is Win - DJ Khaled

How/why did you start playing Ultimate? Everyone grew and I didn’t (lol), so I stopped playing basketball and started playing Ultimate in 2008. I played at Amherst Regional HS and Vanderbilt University. 

What other sports did you play? Basketball

What player is your idol/mentor/inspiration and why?
Matsuno from Buzz Bullets/Japan. He’s small but incredibly effective on the field, something I strive to be. 

What is your role? Secondary/Tertiary cutter with a zero turnover mentality. Hitting the open cutter or reset quickly, and clearing hard. Using my quickness to score efficiently in the red zone. Only throwing hucks in-flow, when receiver is open by 15+ yards with no poaches in the deep space. 

What is your your superpower -most dangerous throw, cut, defensive skill? 

Who are your favorite pro sports teams and athletes and why? Boston Celtics, because they are the first sports team I ever followed. I like Kyrie Irving at the moment because he’s a lot of fun to watch.
