All-Section/FOTY/POTY Nominations Thread

So it begins!

Today we’ll be starting the nomination process for All-Section, Freshman of the Year, and Player of the Year. STAND UP BAMA SECS NATION!!!

We here at Bama Secs already have an idea of who we’ll be placing on the ballot, but today is your chance to tell us who you think belongs on this year’s ballot. In the comments below we want to hear everyone’s nominations. If possible include all nominations you believe are worthy in both the men’s AND women’s division! The more the better, the cockier the better, the weirder the better, the more Vandy talk the weirder, and don’t forget Myron Hardy!

We’ll be taking nominations through Wednesday so you can expect ballots soon after that. Let’s get to smack talking! Because I’m sure no one in this section can guard anyone at the same time as they shut down everyone… If you need to see some of the nominations from years past, click 20152014, 2013, and the best of all time.

Arm yourself with the most bias of opinions and prepare to enter the black hole that is.. the Bama Secs nominations thread.

  1. Pretty much anybody from Auburn and Tulane’s top 7 would make a respectable all-section line but we have to be “fair” and have “variety” (lol) so I’ll limit my choices (slightly)

    All Section:

    Auburn- Ryan, Blake, Evan, Martin, Eric, Dusty
    Tulane- Lamp, Chance, Mooney
    LSU- Tom…thats really about it. LSU’s depth is their consistency and chemistry, but i wouldnt consider anybody else “all-section material”
    UAB- Ethan, Burke
    MSU- Tanner
    Bama- Noaks
    Vandy- nobody knows anything about you guys tbh
    Ole Miss- *crickets*
    Southern Miss- MAYBE frodo…

    FOTY:

    This was much more obvious last year…honestly idk

    POTY:

    Eric Sjostrom

  2. With that being said…

    Handlers: Frodo (USM), Evan (AU), Tom (LSU), Lamp (Tulane).
    Mids: Tanner (State), Eric (AU), Ethan (UAB), Ryan (AU), Mooney (Tulane).
    Deeps: Burke (UAB), Oaks (Bama), Blake (AU)

    I’m sure some of these positions are wrong but these are where I would put these people on a line from what I’ve seen

  3. Auburn – Landry, Sjostrom, Boecking, Galloway
    LSU – Echols, Vermaeaeaelen
    Tulane – Walter, Lamp, Chance
    UAB – Ethan, Jason, Burke
    Vandy – Danny
    Bama – Noaks
    Miss State – Tanner
    Ole Miss – Amit
    Southern Miss – N/A

    POTY – Ryan Landry
    FOTY – Nobody

  4. i nominate everybody from every team. stop being pussies and pick 7. otherwise you’ll end up with a buncha people with tied “nominated” votes.

  5. There are like 12 or so guys that could make the team, so this was hard:

    Danny (Vandy)- POTY (yeah who tf is vandy idk, most skilled player in conference)
    Ryan Landry (Auburn)
    Blake G (Auburn)
    Evan B (Auburn)
    ——3 best players on best team, steph draymond klay
    Tom E (LSU)
    Tanner (MSU)
    Walter/Lamp/Chance (Tulane)
    ——-Not sure of the general consensus on who the best of the 3 are but yeah
    Close but no cigar:
    Ethan, Burke (UAB)
    Eric (Auburn)
    Frodo (Southern miss)

    FOTY:
    John Sims (LSU)
    Jack (Auburn)
    Not sure who the other freshman are??

  6. DUDE, are you being serious? what about my post doesn’t match up with your point of view? what even is your point of view? auburn is the best team in the section. who has the title? we do. especially in a year where this section seems it’s been the strongest it’s ever been in the past 5-6 years. we have our sights set on the horizon.

  7. POTY
    Tulane- Evan, Chance
    Bama- Noaks
    -Olemiss- Amit

    FOTY
    Olemiss- Carl Upton, that kid that skyed Evan Walter
    Sims- LSU

  8. From what I saw playing against a majority of these players, I think this is a fair assessment of the top seven players in the section…

    All-Section Line:
    Evan Walter (Tulane)
    Evan Boecking (Auburn)
    Blake Galloway (Auburn)
    Ryan Landry (Auburn)
    Lamp (Tulane)
    Tanner (MSU)
    David Paisner (Vandy) #DP4CALLAHAN

    Echols is the odd ball out here but I really couldn’t pick out a specific individual on the LSU team that stood above the rest. Their whole team was sound fundamentally so I think it is worth acknowledging.

    FOTY: No clue

    POTY: Lamp. He might not have been on Auburn, but Tulane would not have had a great chance (ah, puns) to compete at a high level in this section without him. Despite playing with a cast on one arm, he consistently skied fools, had excellent throws, and was very clearly the go-to guy on their offense bailing out their team on hucks and making plays all over the field. Definitely the Tulane MVP and probably the best player in the section.

    1. LOST IT AT “EVERYONE ON LSU IS FUNDAMENTALLY SOUND.”

      CAN WE JUST DECIDE THAT THIS GUY’S VOTE DOESN’T COUNT?

      1. WHY ARE YOU YELLING? also if you’re gonna use quotation marks you might as well quote him correctly. He said, “their whole team is sound fundamentally.” Which I think is fair, you can have a fundamentally sound team where even the best players don’t necessarily stand out in every game without every single player being sound.

  9. LSU’s freshman line could literally kick every team’s in the country’s freshman line. heck. bring them to U19 worlds. betcha they could win.

    but seriously.
    grant odenwald on lsu for his sheer competitiveness.
    dexter turner for his chance to make worlds, but couldn’t go because of his mom.
    johnny sims, he DID go to worlds tryouts. didnt make it.
    that guy from auburn. i think they call him cain.

    If you want a comparison: eric won it last year. and eric is pretty good. that guy sucks though. but he is really good looking, and super nice. FUCK THAT GUY. if you are good at frisbee, might as well be an asshole so i can hate something about you. BUT NO!!! had to be mr. perfect. not as perfect as travis vermaelen.. cause that guy is going to be …….. <<<>>>

    THATS WHAT MATTERS! mr. bamasecs.

    just look at this guy. so hot
    https://www.facebook.com/travis.vermaelen?fref=ts

    and then he represents the south so well! jorts, jirts, jats. WHO isnt voting for slurpy t for MBS (mr.bamasecs)? cause i will find you. and lick your privates.

    finally. mrs. bamasecs. andrea rocchi.

    WOMEN’s
    foty that chick from alabama
    poty that chick from auburn with the blond hair and the throws
    All section:
    MSU: captain who had a boot at the beginning of the season.
    LSU: asian girl (where was bernie this year?)
    Auburn: that chick with the blond hair and the throws, and that other chick with the blond hair with the cuts.
    Tulane: that girl that NEVER stops running. jesus
    alabama: that brunette handler, and that brunette cutter.

  10. As someone who played against most of these players, I think I have compiled a fair assessment of players who I saw that were consistently dominant on the field:

    All section line:

    Lamp (Tulane)
    Evan Walter (Tulane)
    Ryan Landry (Auburn)
    Evan Boecking (Auburn)
    Blake Galloway (Auburn)
    Tanner (MSU)
    David Paisner (Vandy) #DP4CALLAHAN

    Echols is the odd ball out but I really couldn’t pick one guy from LSU. Seemed to me like they were just a well oiled machine and everyone fit their roles well. I couldn’t pick a standout but I feel as though this was worth mentioning.

    FOTY: No idea

    POTY: Lamp. Tulane would not have had a chance (ah, puns) to be where they are right now without Lamp. Despite having a cast on an arm, he was beating people by consistently skying fools, having great throws, and being the obvious go-to guy on their offense. He would frequently bail out his team by making a tremendous play on a so-so decision by a teammate. Yeah he doesn’t go to Auburn, but he was certainly the MVP on Tulane and by my accounts, the most dynamic player in the section.

  11. Easy start:

    Ryan Landry, dude is clearly the best player in the section-conference
    Blake Galloway
    Eric
    Evan
    Lamp from Tulane, lots of respect for his brace-wielding skill the whole weekend
    Every time I glanced in the general direction of a UAB game Burke was skying the shit out of someone so I gotta go with him
    that’s six, I’ll say LSU Tom to finish it. (let me reiterate what every other commenter has said by stating that LSU’s whole team just rarely fucked up, last 8 points of the tournament as the exception.
    Guys who are close:
    Jack tulane
    Evan (seems like he fell off a bit, not bad by any stretch, but not as dominant)
    Frodo Southern Miss (he also yelled ‘fuck’ a lot, so there’s some bonus points)
    Tanner State
    Amit Ole Miss, dude tried his best to drag that team to regionals
    Ethan UAB, very careful with the disc

  13. POTY: Ryan Landry – because reasons and things
    Lamp – I don’t actually enjoy playing with Lamp, he’s just really good and I have to respect that. Disgusting throws and dangerous at any location on the field
    Tom Echols – Squirrely as hell, tight throws, and a really nice guy to top it off
    Noaks – #Monster
    Evan Walter – I guess he’s OK at some stuff. Like everything.
    Eric Sjostrom – Incredibly dynamic player, but someone told me he still has his baby teeth
    Tanner Robinson – best defender in the section. all day, every day

  14. Are you talking about Reviere? Cause that guy is NOT nice. Or humble. He literally turns it over and then yells “I’m the best mudda fuckin player on this team”

  15. Zzzzzzzzz cmon fellas this thread is a snooze fest.

    And where are all the women? Keri Camp from MSU has the best hucks in the section. That’s all I know for now

  16. POTY – Ryan Landry since I can’t remember a single time I’ve seen fuck up in a tight situation. He quietly takes over games for Aubrun when it really matters.
    Lamp (Tulane) – He does good things for them I guess
    Thomas Echols (LSU) – His ability to defend some of the best players in the section while also being hard to defend makes him such a dynamic player for LSU’s dline.
    Travis Vermaelen (LSU) – Most athletic dude in the section, if not Region. People seem to have forgot Slurpy T existed but for reference, he’s that handsome dude that skyed your best defender on multiple occasions. He’s also great defender and even hand blocked that Xavier guy from UNCW before Landry did and did this all while wearing (rocking them oh so well) jorts.
    Eric Sjostrom (Vandy) – I haven’t seen play before this year, but it doesn’t seem like he’s lost any step since winning FOTY last year.
    Danny (Vandy) – Coming from Vandy who has a very handler driven offense, he stands out, that says something. He also seemed to be the only player on that team who showed up to play.
    Noaks (Bama) – I didn’t feel like naming another Auburn guy.
    FOTY-
    Johnny Sims (LSU) – This kid is one annoying freshman off the field, but on the field, he gets shit done. He approaches the handler position as rookie with such calmness and precision, makes me go chub tbh.
    Carl (Ole Miss) – Apparently he skyed Evan Walter, that’s worth noting in multiple comments in my book.
    I also want to suggest a new catergory: Best sideline presence
    LSU – the bumping on grinding in jorts and jats (Jean hats for the uncultured swines) had to have been very distracting for their opponents this season. The cheers were always raw and had an almost improvisational tone. I loved how inappropriate they were. Their sideline DJ dude, I think his name is Dustin???, was also always cranking out the tunes for bustin moves.
    Tulane – Their team seems to take chants about as seriously as their play. They only have three it seemed like, but their rowdy repetitiveness is enough to get their team hype and intimidate/piss opponents. P.S. What IF MY heart pumped Kool Aid??? That shit is delicious.
    Auburn – Throughout the year, they didn’t have too much of a special sideline presence, but they stepped up when it mattered at sectionals. That guy with the trumpet was at 101% for every point of their games. Whether it was performing the national anthem at halftime, blaring that six flags theme song (which I now hate), or blowing bubbles in the opponents paths when there was a break, he kept their many sideline dwellers in the game. Smart move having a hype man when you only have 12 players you’re willing to play in high stakes games.

  17. Let me just say that Eric “Turnover Machine” Reviere is the greatest player in the section, maybe even the best player in the country. He deserves the POTY award in all aspects, not for what he has done for LSU, but for what he has done for the sport of ultimate. He gives us the greatest leadership a freshman who skipped the fall could (he’s also a frat star). No one can turf a wide open huck like he can.
    Speaking of LSU, they should win the award for most players to throw up and pass out in the bathroom naked. But it’s okay because they usually piss the bed before throwing up.
    Fuck Hinn though, that tournament suxxx. The fields weren’t even grass, they were soup. And something was blowing, but it wasn’t the wind.
    Now we all love to get our jokes in about the man, the myth, the legend Myron Hardy, but lets take a moment to really appreciate who’s really working hard here. Deez Nutts. Got h’eeem, #suggitHannie

    ROTY- The whole class from LSU. Let’s pray they don’t fuck up and NOT reach their potential. Keep grindin’ boys

  19. I am pretty sure you just went through the rosters on USAU and picked random names. Either that or you spend too much time talking to players on the SIDELINE. boom roasted. go home.

  20. Carl from Ole Miss not only skied Evan Walter, burnalso scored on Lamp four or five times. Mad ups and a mean flick huck. Don’t punish the kid for playing on a mediocre team. He made the most difference by a freshman by far. He was also taught by none other than John Clemmer himself.

  21. Women’s Part 1:

    Rhodes
    All-Conference: Tabitha Joyner, Katy Roys, McKenzie Drake, Kat Hendrix
    FOTY: Lane Brandt

    UAB
    All-Conference: Lana Hejezen
    FOTY: Alyssa Romero

    Belmont
    All-Conference: Julie Hilton
    FOTY: Phoebe Hoffman

    Ole Miss
    All-Conference: Brooke Holloway, Alison Neel, Emily Lado
    FOTY: Sydney Flatt, Emma Wandell, DaJ’ai Ashford

    I’ll advocate later—just trying to get the names on the ballot.

    (These were submitted by the team’s themselves)

  22. Women’s Ballot – getting a few names out there – Note that the only tournament I went to was Sectionals and did not see Auburn or Bama play

    – Brooke Holloway – Ole Miss – Tall, fast and has good throws and good patience.
    – Main Handler from Tulane – help me out here – got the disc every other throw and commanded the field. Great field presence with great throws
    – Keri Camp – MSU – has great throws with big hucks. Can get the disc from a handler standpoint whenever she wants.
    – Dana Bramlett – MSU – solid middle cutter with good experience. Good throws and isn’t afraid to attack the disc. She made some great catches over the weekend.
    – Kellie Ellis – MSU – Ironwoman on the field, she goes and goes. Can cut and play defense with the best. Good throws with a great backhand break. Good in the air and breaks ankles all day. Her passion and competitive nature is phenomenal to watch.

    -Grace Robinson – MSU – Watch out for Grace in the future, she’s young and needs some experience but her desire to get better is incredible. She’s one of the main handlers/deep-deeps with the stickiest fingers I’ve ever seen, brings down any disc near her (and not near her)

    Obviously I’m biased, but these ladies need some recognition.

  23. 1st Team

    Ryan Landry (Auburn)
    Evan Boecking (Auburn)
    Blake Galloway (Auburn)
    Ben Lamport (Tulane)
    Evan Walter (Tulane)
    Danny On (Vandy)
    Tom Echols (LSU)

    2nd Team

    Eric Sjostrom (Auburn)
    Michael Volz (Auburn)
    Nate Oakes (Alabama)
    Ethan Downs (UAB)
    Michael Burke (UAB)
    Tanner Robinson (MSU)
    Chance Cochran (Tulane)

  24. Women’s Part 2:

    Alabama
    All-Conference: Tara Massouleh, Alex Jones, and Hayley Djuric
    FOTY: Julia Becker

    I am organizing an album so people can put faces to names; I’ve got the nominees from Belmont, Rhodes, Ole Miss, Alabama entered already.

  25. the fact that the dominance of Travis Vermaelen from LSU is being so overlooked in this thread is comical. From watching him play and seeing him get every under he wants as well as being one of the biggest deep threats in the conference he 100 percent needs to be all section

  26. Two of the best and most relied upon players on Bama Secs Select were Ben Lamport and Chance Cochran. Watch that game to show see what it is like to consistently beat a difficult matchup. They should be thought of as 1st and 2nd team All-Region.

  27. Just as much as Francis hates seeing club footage in a callahan video, I don’t like to mention anything not directly related to the college season, however Lamp and Chance were dominant, and were noticeably better than their peers, in their points at Bama Secs Select amongst the best of the Southeast Region.

    I also believe that just as regions have a first and second team, we should return to a format that serves more than just the top 7. A year like this would be very fitting to celebrate a first team and a second team with 14 deserving players.

  28. Chance Cochran (Tulane) got snubbed for FOTY last year, and proved it this year. At all time’s he is working harder than anyone on the field, he’s the fastest player in the section by a lot and uses it to his advantage, and his knowledge of the game and mental awareness allows him to make some incredible plays. He’s my POTY pick this year, and as a section we should look deep down inside ourselves and should at least consider going back and revoting on FOTY last year.

    1. Chance is fast, fastest is debatable. I’ve always wanted to see a footrace between each team’s nominee for their “fastest player” to see who would win. Off the top of my head I’d say Tanner from state, dusty from auburn, blonde guy from Ole miss maybe, Frodo from usm, lots of LSU guys could be, danny from vandy? Any teams care to chime in with their fastest?

      1. Lol. Blonde head guy? I think that is Sean Williamson. Also, I want to meet this Tanner guy and I want to see how fast he is.

  29. This commenting program is horrifying. Please fix this nonsense Bama Secs. It tells me error, then it saves the comment.

  30. I’ve practiced next to Ole Miss men for two semesters and played in the men’s and women’s club fall league, and still have no idea which one Carl could be, Which is just to say we need actual team submissions for All-Conference, POTY, and All-Freshman/FOTY with photos….hopefully, this will be the future of Conference hype.

  31. I have been around this conference since 2009 and it is really exciting to see how much better the teams have gotten over the years. Gone are the days of the top teams having no difficult games until the finals.

    ———————————————————-

    I never have any interest in these awards but I was approached to write about one of my players…

    I have not been to a lot of tournaments or seen the Gulf Coast teams play outside of Sectionals this year, so I am not going to try and tell you why this freshman on Alabama is better than your top freshman. But I will talk about why he is my FOTY.

    Nathan “Lyborg” Lyle.

    He is the defender that rotated between a top three player on every team at Sectionals. Lamp, Chance, Travis, Tom, Danny On, Ethan Downs, JT, Tanner. His ability to frustrate veteran players is something I have only seen by a freshman a few times and typically not by someone who started playing in August. Yes, the above players worked him plenty of times. They are supposed to though, they are the best players on each team and great players win their matchups. But Nathan’s composure and strong mental game meant that he was always hungry for more, and he rarely gets beat the same way twice. Plus, late in the game is where he wants you because he can run for days and is when he has the most success after he has picked up on the habits of players and worked to minimize the effectiveness of their strengths.

    Offensively he worked the width of the field with his legs and his throws, caught scores, threw hucks, and was a crucial aspect of the Alabama defensive O. On Sunday unfortunate injuries to some veterans meant that the team needed someone to step up and play O-line. At first we thought Nathan would switch to O-line in replacement of his D-line reps for Sunday but it was evident that playing him both ways would not be an issue in regards to his effectiveness and efficiency on the field.

    Nathan Lyle rekts humans on and off the field and is always overly optimistic about Alabama’s odds to close out or come back to win games because it is the only way he knows how to play the game. He may be quiet and a little shy but do not let that fool you. He is focused and is about to get that layout D on your best player before he takes him to the house.

    Above all else I love him for his coachability. I am far from a great coach but I do know what a great player and teammate looks like. He is a sponge. If I am not giving him feedback after a point where he felt like he made some mistakes, he is tracking me down on the sideline to ask what he should have done different. Attempting to capture a glimpse of my knowledge from my quick explanation, so that he can utilize it next time he is on the field. Nathan embodies the type of teammate every team needs to lead by example and ensure the foundation / values instilled in the program by those older than him continue to evolve with the team as they work to accomplish their goals.

    Last. He reminds me of Swirlz in every way.

  32. Women’s Part 4:

    Kristine Fedorenko, Auburn, as already mentioned. Don’t know if they are going to submit names of other players, or freshman to consider….

    Waiting on Vandy, but All-Conference nominees should include

    Charlotte Doran
    Jin-Mi Matsunaga

    and waiting on freshman to consider.

    It would be ashame for the ballots to go out after Wednesday without whoever the other All- Conference standouts and freshman of interest are on Auburn, Vandy, and Tulane.

  33. Womens FOTY: Emily ‘Bonez’ Bonenfant (Tulane). Faster, stronger, and better hops than anyone else; worked tirelessly as a cutter and was always open, catches everything and would reliably hit her dump or the downfield continuation. Refused to let the person she was guarding touch the disc on defense.

    POTY: Marypat Henry (Tulane). Absolute baller on both sides of the disc. Throws cutters open from the handler spot and gets open at will as a cutter. Has skied everyone in the conference at least once – and doesn’t even feel bad about it. Should also be in the running for Ms. Bamasecs.

  34. Let’s get some more lady talk going on in here..

    For all conference

    Charlotte Doran (Vandy) – Gotta give a shout out to my roommate/co-captain. She is one of the best all-around players in the section, for sure. She can break the mark, inside or around, whenever she wants. Incredibly conservative with the disc, great decision making, and has a crazy flick huck. She is also a stifling defender. She can play shutdown D, and also generate turnovers with her ridiculous mark. If you’ve ever been handblocked by this girl, don’t take it personally. She does that to everyone.
    K-Fed (Auburn) – Obviously. She is probably the best women’s thrower in the conference. She also has a plethora of tall, fast receivers to throw it to. She is the rock behind their offense and enables Auburn to have one of the deep games in the section.
    Paula (Auburn) – This girl is crazy fast and scored a large portion of Auburn’s goals at Sectionals. Great stamina. Girl never stops running.Brooke (Ole Miss) – She is an all-around player. Tall, great throws, great in the air, rock solid last back defender. She is also one of the friendliest players on the sideline–that is when she is on the sideline. She plays almost every point for Ole Miss and is their go-to person.
    Dana (Miss State) – We only got to play Miss State once this season, but I got a chance to watch their pool play game against Ole Miss at sectionals, and Dana was a key part of their very close victory. Generated D’s, scored goals, great in the air.
    Tara (Alabama) – Solid throws, good defender, uses her size well as a handler/cutter, and is explosive when attacking the disc on unders.
    Tall brunette handler with the throws (Tulane) – She’s one of their captains, but I forget her name atm. Her upline cuts to deep throws are super dangerous and difficult to shut down. Also patient with the disc when there are no upfield options. Solid handler.

    Other players worth mentioning – Dani (Auburn), Meredith (Auburn), Jasmine Billz Williams (Vandy), Emi (LSU), Courtney (Tulane), the other tall brunette handler on Tulane

    FOTY
    Sofia Lima (Vandy) – Maybe a little bit biased, but I don’t know who else was a rookie in the section. Picking just one FOTY from Vandy was really tough. But I feel really confident that Sofia is our girl. She came to Vanderbilt with 3 years of high school experience as the “star player of [her] high school team” (-Heather Gardner, Blackman women’s ultimate coach). She has solid throws, is incredibly patient and level-headed on the field, takes calculated risks as a zone handler, and is a solid defender. You might recognize her by her long golden locks (like really, really long) and tall chicken legs (jk, but not really). Can’t wait to see how she develops through college.

    …I can’t not shout out our other stand out rookies Lizzie Carsello and Aimee Alexander. Both of them came to us without any frisbee experience and have crushed all season. They are both incredibly athletic, aren’t afraid to body up, and while their throws need some work, they have low turnover rates. They will be future all-conference nominees for sure.

  35. I’ve updated the women’s nominations in the album linked below, and wrote a comment if I’m missing pictures. Feel free to send me an ulty shot if you know or you are one of those with first and last names listed. I am listing freshman as All-Freshman nominations–and just assume they are all in running for FOTY.

    https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10208377543178834.1073741856.1312923002&type=1&l=139df84b83

  36. Womens’ Division needs more write ups so we’re gonna get on that.

    All Conference:
    K-Fed (Auburn) – some of the best throws we’ve played against this season. Really dangerous going up line and equally backhand and flick hucks. She’s also really quick on immediate dump cuts.

    Alex (Alabama) – solid handler but really shines as a deep-deep in zone defense. Gets nearly everything she goes up for and also has a pretty good mark.

    Hayley (Alabama) – one of the most experienced and most effective cutters in the section. She can literally get open on anyone and plays shut-down man defense.

    Tara (Alabama) – great throws, especially flick hucks to deep cutters. Extremely athletic and mostly always comes up with everything thrown to her.

    Mary Pat (Tulane) – super athletic, always gets up on floaty discs. Really smart decisions as a handler and an all around great player.

    Charlotte (Vandy) – by far the best mark in the section with countless hand blocks and really effective as a defender on a handler. Also has good throws and good field awareness.

    Jin-Mi (Vandy) – super fast all around. Reads the disc well and more than makes up for her height. Tenacious defender and solid throws.

    FOTY:
    Julia (Alabama) – played in high school so came with a decent amount of experience, but was more impressive in the way she gives her all to all aspects of the game. Has gotten countless Ds by running through and has scored a lot for Bama with crazy catches.

  37. Women’s Part 5

    LSU WOMEN:

    All conference: Gina Guillory, Emelia Marshall, Inah Hong
    FOTY: Mary Catherine (MC) Wynn

  38. Dana (Miss State)
    KFed (Auburn)
    Emi (LSU)
    Paula? (Auburn)
    Tara (Alabama)
    brunette handler (LSU)
    brunette handler captain? (Tulane)
    Charlotte (Vandy)

  39. Some more women’s talk:

    POTY should be Kfed or MP
    Auburn: K-fed and it’s not even close
    Tulane: Mary-Pat literally does everything for that team. Probably the most handler dominated team in the section and she heads it with great throws, speed, vision, and length. Other notable mention is that other tall brunette girl, Courtney.
    LSU: Eme and Gina no question this year. Eme is a squirrel that skies people a foot taller than her (which is often the case) and Gina has a rocket as a throwing arm. I’ve seen her throw 60 yard flick with a flat mark. What? Other notable mentions are their other two handlers Inah and Sarah?
    Bama: Brunette handler that is really good and is A+ at complaining. It’s like she’s the ultimate’s version of Kobe except there’s no refs…

  40. Women’s

    Samford recognizes Sky Sikkink, All-Conference Nominee and Maggie Herd and Caylee Kennedy as All-Freshman/FOTY. Couldn’t play Conference this year, but 2017 if $$$ there.

  41. This may be a little late since nominations are over but maybe I could sway a couple voters. I won’t talk about LSU since Ole Miss didn’t play them but Tom is probably good enough to mention anyways.

    Top 7:
    Ryan Landry – he didn’t even really have to play or try against us but easily a top 3 player in the section. He’s got great throws, amazing hucks, and a great mark.
    Garris Bug – can’t believe no one else nominated Garris. That’s a huge testament to how little players in our section understand ultimate. Sure, he isn’t the flashiest player and he isn’t as fast as Blake but this guy might be Auburn’s most versatile player. He has great cutting ability, great throws, can get big in the air.
    Evan Walter – Even with a relatively down year, this guy is probably the best all around player in the section. He’s got great break throws, great hucks, he can handle, he can cut. And on top of all of that, he’s a top 3 defensive player in the section. He also is awesome at making shitty calls (along with the rest of Tulane)
    Noaks – This guy is right up there with Evan for best player in the section. He’s got the same amount of athleticism and throws everyone else on this list has but his decision making is the only thing holding him back at times. He’s also probably the best defender in the section. And he’s probably tied with Evan for most bullshit calls.
    Danny On – I gained a lot of respect for this guy during our game. He re-cleated in the middle of our game despite his injury and worked pretty much every player on our team who tried to guard him. He was too quick and had too good of break throws for anyone to really stop. I’d like to say our lack of legs were an issue but he just kicked our ass.

    Those guys are clearly on a whole different level from the rest of the guys in the section. The last spots in the top 7 are really a toss up between a bunch of players. You could argue for Tanner Robinson, Blake Galloway, Tom Echols, Jason Russell, Amit, or Nathan Sims.

    There are a couple younger guys who are close but not really there yet like Chance, Eric Sjostrum, Lamp, Caleb Wilson, Frodo, Michael Burke, Mark Sandefur, and Ethan downs.

    POTY: toss up between Noaks, Landry and Walter. I’m going with Evan.

    FOTY: Carl UPton (Ole Miss). Man this guy can get UP. His combination of leaping ability plus speed is unrivaled by anyone in this rookie class. Combine that with good enough upfield throws and the ability to break the mark with an around flick and a full field flick huck and you have an obvious top candidate for FOTY.

    FOTY: Carl UPton. Man this guy can get UP. No other rookie possesses the same athletic ability. His combination of leaping ability and speed is unmatched by any other rookie and pretty much any player in the section. Combine that with good enough upfield throws, the ability to break the mark with an around flick, and a full field flick huck and you have an easy top candidate for FOTY. He also skied the shit out of Evan Walter.

  43. curious about who this person on the Bama team is? can you be more specific plz & thanks. and in what way does she complain?
