It’s a nice day out for a run, at least until later this afternoon. If you can get out before the rain comes down, make sure to jog for 20 minutes, using Playlist 8 if you have access to music. Then home for 100 backhands, 100 forehands, 50 scoobers, and 50 backhands. Then it’s inside for video time!

Jimmy Mickle is one of my favorite ultimate players- he’s fast, tall, and has great throws and catches. He dominates in the air and has an astute sense of the field and where things need to go and when. Here are a bunch of videos to get started- Google his name to learn more and watch more videos.

With Falmouth Rogue now graduating high school seniors up into the world of college ultimate, this is a perfect time to share highlights from the recent 2019 College Championships.

The Callahan Award is the highest honor awarded to college ultimate players and is given to one male and one female player each year who best epitomizes the qualities of high skill, talent, good spirit, sportsmanship, and leadership. One of the fun things about the Callahan Award for ultimate fans is the pile of promotional videos put together by friends and teammates of potential Callahan Award winners. The videos pull together each players highlights and are set to music and edited to be exciting to watch.
Here are the Callahan videos from a few of the past year’s winners as well as some of this years videos from other college stars.
