#MeetTheHustle - Will Lindquist

How/why did you start playing ultimate? I started playing competitive Ultimate my sophomore year of college.

What other sports did you play? I grew up playing soccer, basketball, and football. In high school I just stuck with basketball and soccer (East Coweta High School). Ultimate is probably my best sport, but if I wasn't playing I would likely have continued to play soccer

What player is your idol/mentor/inspiration and why? I got taken under the wing of a lot of the veteran players my first year playing for Kennesaw (Charles Loudermilk, Mike McGinnis, Hunter Neilson) who helped me understand the game from different perspectives. 

What is your claim to fame? Since I've only played 1.5 seasons of ultimate I'd say winning our first spring tournament for Kennesaw this year was huge for our program going forward and hopefully a sign of good things to come.

Who are your favorite athletes/teams? I grew up idolizing Steve Nash for his court vision and his willingness to share the basketball while still maintaining his all-star status. My favorite team is the San Antonio Spurs because they epitomize what team basketball should be; humility, teamwork, and effort.

What do you do outside of ultimate? I am in my junior year studying mechanical engineering at Kennesaw State University and work as an intern in the continuous improvement department at Yamaha Motor Manufacturing Corporation

Name a recent book, movie, tv show, or video game you enjoyed. I love binge watching sitcoms. Some of my favorites are That 70s Show, Parks and Recreation, and The Big Bang Theory. 

What would you choose as your "walk up" song?
