How I came to join Revolver: Recruited by Davis Dogs coach, Revolver alumnus and carpool buddy Eric “Redbeard” Halverson.

Funniest moment or joke on Revolver:

  1. Baylis’ fast story in Tahoe.
  2. Chappie’s pigeon story in Prague.
  3. Beau’s Colombian whale story in Tahoe.
  4. Sherwood’s pre-game warm-up at Northwest Regionals 2010.
  5. Cassidy’s bathroom visit to the cellar at Froggy’s in Davis on his 21st birthday.

Favorite game or tournament moment on Revolver: Winning Worlds in Prague, Czech Republic, because it was my first championship.

Favorite game or tournament moment outside of Revolver: 2009 Sean Ryan – Davis Dogs vs. Cal – My first full year on the Dogs and this was my first ever matchup against Cal. The game went to universe point and I caught the game-winning goal (my eight goal of the game) on a bailout throw that hung over a crowd of people. Suck it, Dutchy, Ryo, and Joel! It may be worth mentioning that Sean Ryan was a pre-season tournament and that the next time we played Cal when it actually mattered we lost 15-3. 🙁

Favorite Ultimate player(s) in formative years:

  1. Taylor Lahey – my captain for the first two years with the Davis Dogs, for being one of the hardest-working players and having as much heart as anyone I’ve ever played with.
  2. Allen Thoe – for his wheel and for still being crazy athletic with half a foot.
  3. Daryl Nounnan – for teaching me patience even though I never listened, and for being as hairy as a baboon.
  4. Steve Joye – my dad, for influencing me to play this dumb sport (if you can even call it that).
  5. Eric Halverson – for being my first coach and teaching me everything he knows as I continue to play on Revolver, including his sweet shimmy before he throws a flick (mine is probably better now though).
  6. Kevin Cissna – for his work ethic and intensity, even though it scares me sometimes.

Favorite movie as a kid: Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

What makes ___ so dangerous? Goose step. ‘Nuff said.

Theme song:

  1. LMFAO – YES
  2. Zac Brown Band – Chicken Fried

Pre-game ritual: Rest as long as possible before I have to start running.

What I like to eat on Saturday night of a tournament: Chicken. Fried. Just kidding–that’s gross. Probably a burrito.

If I didn’t play Ultimate, my main pastime outside of work would be: Basketball, backpacking, rock climbing, piano, food.

Favorite sports team outside of Ultimate: Green Bay Packers

In terms of Kanners, how tan are you?  0.1 in the right lighting.

Something unknown about me:  I actually hate Ultimate — I just play because the chicks dig it.  I’m actually faster than Beau.
