All of the pickup ever- everything from upside-down only scrimmages to Natty-lite beach ultimate to college scrimmages with VCU
Highlights: After an 8 point battle back and forth with some of the worst wind ever, the score was 8-8 (I believe), captaining d-line with every single point going into the wind, I ran a play near the endzone and threw an i-o to one of my teammates, putting it at 8-9 and finally letting d-line play with the wind. I cried. We ended up winning the game with a killer huck from my co-captain.

I’ve been to Radicals games. This is a lot for someone who doesn’t like watching sports
Claim to fame: I caught a point in my first game ever, and then someone stripped the disc. I was so disappointed and didn’t know the rules yet
