#24 for Harding is Tyler Samuel, and he is a stud. I'm glad to see him
get mentioned, because from what I heard (read Nick's write-up of the
Truman/Harding game), he played like an absolute beast. TS is just a
sophomore, but he's got loads of potential and works really hard, so
he's just going to continue to get better.

I understand what you're saying about him playing for a bigger/better
school, but I wouldn't at all be surprised to see Harding become more
of a power player in the South while he's there.

I would like to add a few more names that impressed me:

Stevie Presley for Texas - Nothing needs to be said here, the kid is a
machine, and likely snatched my Callahan vote with his play against us
in finals.

K-Rich for UNT - I know he couldn't be there this week due to some
uncontrollable body organ explosion, but please don't forget him when
you're considering all-region. He was the foundation of the UNT team
this year, and everyone who has seen him play knows he is one of the
top all-around players in the region.

Matt Jackson for Arkansas - One of the craziest athletes in the
South. Made two incredible plays against us in semis, and (as
mentioned above) had an insane sky in the backdoor game that even the
finals crowd couldn't ignore. He gets a ton of touches on the field,
and handles the disc confidently when he's not throwing his body
around in a way that shows complete idiocy and commitment to his team.

DJ for Texas - It was hard to choose between Soup and DJ, both played
out of their minds for Texas in the final. Both were very solid with
their defense and their handling, but DJ, I think, touched the disc a
little more often and made a few more impressive lefty backhand
breaks. Also a freak athlete, as evidenced by his nasty D's on me and
KK in the same point.

Best for Texas State - Another great handle. Has the body type and
speed to be an amazing cutter, but his throws and quick cuts make him
a dangerous handle. Had some great hucks in the game-to-go, as well
as being more or less unguardable in every game Tx St game I watched
this weekend. He was consistently open against us, even though our
gameplan relied on shutting down their handles.

Kevin Kelly, Ryan Bigley, Alex Brammer, and the aforementioned Abe
Jacobs from KU. Bigley and Axl carried us through Sunday when lots of
guys were losing their focus and playing halfheartedly. Both of them
came up with some great throws, catches, cuts, and Ds in every single
game, and both of them will say they weren't even playing up to their
full potential this weekend. We rely on them to be solid for us every
game, and they did so this weekend. Kevin Kelly is on another level.
He has been our head captain the past two years, and is in charge of
organizing practices, tournament information, rides, etc., and still
finds time to be the best player on our team. Everyone knows about
his athleticism in his cuts, and his throws, and his defense, but his
commitment to the Zontals and the college game is unparalleled. His
progression in his four years at Kansas is unbelievable, and he is a
player we count on for any and every point of every game, and he is
always ready to bring it. He is the type of player who can make a
mistake and it will only steel his resolve to make up for it
immediately; he is great at getting Ds immediately after throwaways or
drops.

Oh, and Vinny Ciaramitaro from KU for FOTY. I had multiple guys from
multiple teams come up to me this weekend say that watching him play
settled their FOTY vote. He's got the immature attitude of a
freshman, and most of us vets want to slap him every practice and
frisbee party, but his play on the field cannot be ignored. He had
some fantastic hucks all weekend, played great defense, has one of the
best marks on our team, and generally plays well above his years.
Ya'll should get used to this kid, because he is going to be driving
the Zontal train for years. All due respect to Evan from Wash U (who
was too injured to showcase his talent) or Zach from UNT (who I didn't
get to see this weekend), but Vinny earned his FOTY this weekend.

Oh, and as a footnote to my earlier post, Harding ended up finishing
6th at Ozark Sectionals, taking the last Regionals bid. They did this
by having to win out Sunday (4-0) after dropping two games on
Saturday. The fact that TS wasn't able to make it to Sectionals until
Sunday and that Harding went 4-0 after he got there wasn't a
coincidence.

All that being said, my reactions to South Regionals this year, I feel
every team played to their fullest potential and even beyond it at
times. There are so many talented, athletic, strong, spirited, and
crafty players in this region, picking an All-Region team of 7 players
will ultimately leave many very deserving players left out. Everything
culminated in an amazing weekend of ultimate and some crazy
entertaining games that had awesome sidelines (Harding-UNT & Texas-
KU). Every player mentioned in this post has a legit case, and with so
many players from other teams showing support for other players within
the Region, it says a lot about the quality and spirit of the South.

Note: If enough teams vote for All Region, there is great potential
that a Second Team All Region Team will be implemented next year.
Some added incentive to get teams to vote this year. Any team that
attended sectionals can vote for All Region, so remind your non-
Regionals-attending pals to vote today.

My thoughts for all region:

Franchise, TX: From when he was puking on the sidelines at last years
regionals, and still had the quickness to throw a breakmark backhand
70 yards for the score and beat his man up the line by 20 yards for
the regionals-winning score (followed by my favorite spike of all
time), to this years finals where he was perfect against a tough
Kansas D, I've been impressed by Presley. His backhand is beyond sick.
I'm jealous. He's the best player in the region and maybe the country.

Bankhead, LSU: Going into regionals, I had no idea who this guys was.
I'd read his name on RSD, but never seen him play. Then game Wash U's
game against LSU. We fell behind 10-4, and the reason was Bankhead. We
put our best defenders on him the entire game, but it didn't matter.
He'd get the disc on a dump, or an incut, or in the endzone. Then he'd
put up a perfect huck that was undefendable. The only other player
I've seen in person who could throw a more undefendable huck is Brodie
Smith. We were able to put together a fantastic second half, driven by
a change in strategy that involved standing 5 yards behind cutters
whenever Bankhead had the disc. I came away from that game extremely
impressed.

KRich, UNT: I don't know what the protocol is for players who don't
play at regionals, but in my mind KRich is fully deserving of the all-
region honor. The struggles UNT had last weekend should only highlight
his impact on that team.

There are a number of other guys that are all in the running for the
remaining spots: KK and Jack from Kansas, the Arkansas trio of
Jackson, Hopwood, and Clemons, and half the Texas team.

And then there is somebody who has yet to be mentioned on these
boards. Doug Richardson from Wash U. As a freshman last year, Doug
showed fantastic athleticism and a nose for the disc. This year, I
knew that if he learned to use his throws, he would be a serious
threat. And I was right. Doug finally put it all together at
sectionals, and that continued last weekend at regionals. Cutting in
the middle of our horizontal stack, Doug was always open. He
consistently made some of the sickest grabs I've ever seen, ripping
floaty discs away from taller defenders and making huge layouts for
scores. He played shut-down defense on opposing teams best cutters.
And he finally started throwing. Open all day on in cuts, he made a
number of great hucks, both forehand and backhand for the score. Just
a sophomore, Doug is going to be a force to be reckoned with for the
next couple years.

As for FOTY, I only got the chance to see KU's Vinny in one game, and
he was solid. But there is no way my vote can go to anybody but Evan
Winograd from Wash U. I'm certainly biased, but no freshman played a
bigger role on his team than Evan. I have no problem saying that Evan
was our most complete player over the course of the season. In the
fall and early spring, Evan showed his versatility as a player,
playing fantastic D, getting open with ease, throwing hucks and skinny
break flicks for scores, running down errant hucks, and laying out
like a penguin sliding on ice. As the series drew nearer, we started
relying on him to win games for us and to inspire us when we were
down. And during the series, Evan showed true leadership, leading by
example on the field with his hard play, intensity, and infectious
positive energy and love for the game. No freshman in the region
played a bigger role for their team.

Spencer,
Wash U #32

KRich deserves all-region, I do not think anyone can argue against how
great of a player he is. His absence this weekend shows how vital of a
player he is to North Texas. They had a very good weekend and fought
well but this year's regionals would have been very different had
Kevin been able to play. The regular season and sectionals has to have
some impact on these votes and he undoubtedly carried UNT at times
this season. With a complete uncontrollable suddenly ending his last
college season, it is not fair to leave off such a proven player.

i saw every team in the top 8 this weekend play, so i can really only

Not to mention that Glenn is THIRTY! He should've been the first (?)
29-year old, doctoral student to be FOTY last year, so make it happen
for All-Region.

Also, Zach Riggins is a great candidate for FOTY. I've seen Evan
(WashU) play this weekend and against my brother's high school team in
Texas and he plays a big role on that team, but Zach is a much more
athletic and nuts on defense. Teams that we played this weekend
couldn't believe he was a freshman after the layout Ds and skies he
had.

Great luck to UT and KU next month, please get us a third bid next
year. UT showed great resilience and Kansas again has a strong
handling corp that is not afraid to hit their "6'3 Zontal Prototypes."

Here's a quick All-region after soaking in this weekend's action:

1. Franchise
2. K Rich
3. Kevin Kelly
4. Jeff Loskorn (DJ)
5. Jason Best
6. Bankhead
7. Dan Emmons

FOTY - Zach Riggins

Get your votes in!

2 things to say:

#24 from Harding is a beast. If he is a sophomore, they could
seriously build a team around him in future years. It was also fun to
see somebody else up against the ropes the first game of regionals
(sad memories of State vs. Harding 3 years ago)

Also, I didn't see him play outside our game but I don't understand
Casey Boy's apology for being a dick. Texas State vs Arkansas was the
most spirited game of my tournament by far (even though I did get
tackled by Jacob). There were 0 bad calls in my opinion and most calls
took less than 10 seconds to workout. That team is probably my
favorite other than the one that calls themselves the Buckets.

Casey Boy was gaurding Abe, Abe got an upline pass, Casey Boy was
chasing Abe and lunged in front of him in an attempt to D the disc. I
beat jackson strong side in a end zone iso cut and caught the score. I
then spiked the disc and started the Zontal cheer. As I was walking
towards the sideline to high-five teammates running on the field.
Casey Boy spiked the disc on my leg and was yelling something. It
wasn't a big deal at all and he didn't really have to apologize for
it.

Jackson from Arkansas. I played D on him over the weekend, his cuts
are explosive. Very exciting player.
Jack from Kansas. KK and company are also great athletes, but Jack
gets my vote for his spirit.
Duggles Richardson from WashU. He's playing every point and still
dominating on offense.

Hopefully this voting process has gotten better. Back when I was the
captain/president of my team, we never voted or got the email from
regionals/sectional coordinators to vote.

Observation: Just re-read some of the posts and take note that it is
majority Ozarks people talking. Those who talk about being good,
usually end up on all the lists...

Sounds like a pretty good regionals. Congrats to TUFF and Zontals,
how bout both of ya'll make semis!

And K-Rich, sorry bout the bad luck, man. I'm sure there was some
reason for it bud.

One last thing, who on Kansas is playing on that club team Prairie
Fire?

I guess I should put in my two cents while I'm here...

My top 7
KK and Justin from KU- The offense just always looks better when those
guys get their touches
Franchise and the kinda tall lefty from UT- They were committed to
taking care of the disc like no one I've seen before, great mental
toughness and skill
Bankhead- That guys was a stud when I still in college 3 years back
Matt Jackson- retarded athlete, and plays with that uniquely Arkansas-
style heart. The cherry on top is disc skills.
Best from Texas State- did great work on the field. Even after all
those games they played and with a fairly short roster, was still
killing it against us.


Special thanks to Ajax, Karl, and Nick W-B. Always a pleasure. Also
to Dennis, a tournament with no real complaints reflects thorough off
the field preparation.

It's great to see some young players on people's short lists (Matt
Jackson, Doug Richardson, Caleb Stanek [young at heart]). From the
playing that I've seen from him (Stanford Invite and Centex), Evan
Winograd is going to be making the South Region proud for years to
come.
