#MeetTheHustle Taylor Minch


What do you do outside of ultimate? I work for an environmental services company. As an environmental specialist I manage, assist in the proper disposal of hazardous waste.

Name a recent book, movie, tv show, or video game you enjoyed Game of Thrones is tight


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

How/why did you start playing Ultimate? I was dragged out to a practice my sophomore year of college at GCSU. Showed up with a lefty backhand and a righty flick. Was hooked ever since!

What other sports did you play? At a young age I was a soccer player, and a state swimmer. I have played basketball, football, track, cross country, golf, and disc golf. But, ultimate is my best sport.

What player is your idol/mentor/inspiration? I do not have a specific idol I can point too, but have always liked the scrappy “gruden's grinder” types. Anyone that “isn’t fast enough”, “isn’t big enough.”

What is your your superpower? Blade flick.

What is your claim to fame? My heckling skills/loud teammate pump up skills.

What teams or athletes do you follow? I am a patriots fan. I was brought up watching games with my dad who is from Boston. Julian Edelman has probably been my favorite player for them. Undersized receiver that does WORK on and off the field.
