#MeetTheHustle Adam Burgess


What do you do outside of Ultimate? College student - Graduate teaching assistant at UGA in Kinesiology. I'm thinking about becoming a teacher, coach or physical therapist. 

Name a recent book, movie, tv show, or video game you enjoyed. Mindhunter on Netflix was a great intellectual thriller based on a true story.

What would your walk up song be?

How/why did you start playing Ultimate? I started playing ultimate my senior year of high school at Woodward Academy in Atlanta because I had good friends on the team and it was something I picked up pretty fast. After, I played two years at Georgia College before transferring to UGA and playing 3 years there.

What other sports did you play? Baseball. Ultimate is for sure my best sport.  I’ve put in a bunch of time and effort to play this sport at a high level and I can’t imagine playing anything else. I love this game dearly.

What is your superpower? Being as the opposite of flashy. I'll be super consistent and play tight defense.

What is your claim to fame or favorite memory? Favorite moment has to be stomping on Umass at 2016 College Nationals in pool play to win our pool.

What sports teams or athletes do you follow? I prefer college sports, but since part of my family is from New Orleans I gotta go with the Saints. Favorite athlete to watch might be Kawhi Leonard - dude is a great defensive player and fun to watch in an offensive dominated league
