I had never touched a disc before coming to Pitt. My neighbor freshman year in Towers was Jake Symoniak, who played A his freshman year. He was the first to really introduce me to the game of Ultimate. Jake captained B his second year with ESN and encouraged me to come out and play. Basically, I’ve been hooked ever since. I was pretty awful when I started playing, but luckily my skills from soccer quickly transferred over and I’m now playing alongside some of the best.

I know some players don’t think they can play with their schoolwork and other activities, but the key is to manage your time well. I have 3 majors, pre-med, on the SHAC board for the Honors College, volunteer, do research, and play for ESN. Manage your time and anything is possible.

I’m looking forward to kill some teams this season.
