Odie made the transfer from lacrosse, swimming, and backyard frisbee to collegiate level ultimate exceptionally. Now in his third year at Pitt, Odie amazes opposing teams when he will layout for everything. I mean everything, no matter where he’s playing or even what he’s playing (you should see him in bottle fights, he owns). Then, he will make fun of you and/or yell, obscenely loudly.

But really, he’s the nicest guy ever. For instance, he supplied me with unlimited Raspberry-Lemonade (best flavor ever) smoothies Sophomore year. And this year, he introduced me to the glory of Pierogie Pizza (god’s gift to mash potatoes).

But, one word of warning: Never let him lead you home from a late night of drinking “water”.
