Since no one has really put up names for FOTY in the Central Region
what about Eric Johnson from Luther. He tried out for Sub Zero his
junior year and went up to the final cuts. He is very athletic for a
freshman, has great speed and quickness as either a handler or cutter
and can do both at a high level. He played Soccer for Luther in the
fall so he wasn't on the scene in the fall but look for him to be
turning some heads at regionals this weekend.

I think Iowa has a freshman on their o-line handle set, I think his
name is Taylor or Tyler or something. I've played them a couple
times, and if it's the guy I'm thinking of, he's a huge part of their
offense and often plays monster on d. I may be wrong about which
player, but I think (without any research) that his number is 17.

Anyone know anything about this kid? Somebody said he was a freshman,
and i didn't believe it. Breaks, hucks, great cuts, and solid d. Is
he actually a freshman?

On the ladies side... Magon Liu from Iowa State - # 08. She'll be a
big part of Iowa State's success on both sides. Great handler, smart,
athletic, big play defender, great hands, and, most importantly,
defending Des Moines Summer League Champion!

Tyler Glen #17 Freshman O-line handler for Iowa. Yes he is a true baby-
faced freshman. It is easy to forget that he is a freshman with his
amazing skills. I think he had something like 4 years of club
experience before college most notably "gnarwhal". No other freshman
that I have seen in the freshman region even compares, of course I am
a bit biased because he is my teammate. Look for him to turn some
heads at regionals.

How about an unbiased opinion?

Tyler Glenn is the studliest freshman I've ever played against. Good
luck stopping his breaks and hucks. Awsome kid to be around, very
cute. Watch out for this kid down the road. I smell a Calahan
nominee.

Eric Johnson took his hs team at westerns to the semis. Solid player.
That being said is Sam Keller playing for CUT? Cause it was his hs
team last year that knocked out johnsons in the semis and went on to
win it.

Tyler was definitely a solid player for Iowa and had some excellent
supporting cast, but also lost to Luther at sectionals 15-9, which was
an extremely fun game to watch and seemed closer than the score
reflects. If I am not mistaken I think it was Johnson who was pulling
for Luther, and those were some damn good pulls for a freshman...

Yeah if I were to throw some names in the mix I would definately say
Eric Johnson from Luther, and Ryan Pakerna from Duluth. He is the 6'4
froshling who will drop his nutsack on your head.

While I haven't seen all worthy froshmans, Eric Johnson is a baller.
Has got to be in the running for most athletic freshman plus his
skills are more than legit. If you watch Luther this weekend, get a
look at him. Number 21 I believe.

The golden hand speaks the truth. Eric Johnson balls out harder than
any freshman in this this region hands down. His pulls are absolutely
silly and he had a fantastic sub zero tryout before hurting his
shoulder a few years back.

EJ for FOTY

Tyler is the real deal. I've played against him in both college and
club and he took over for his team on a few crucial points. This kid
has big potential.

He is extremely hard to defend because he is so tall and lanky, a
perfect ultimate build. Also, a top notch sportsman both on and off
the field.

Tyler Glenn is a good choice. Haven't seen EJ, but Tyler plays like a
not freshman.

Outside of Iowa and Luther, haven't heard much talk about Kenny
Mayfield of Drake. He's not very tall, but i watched him get a
footblock and then a sick play against some team at sectionals. He's
about as clutch as you can get without going automatic.

I have not played against Luther this year so I can't speak for them,
but I have personally played against and seen Iowa's Tyler Glenn. A
solid Freshmen that not only has throws of a veteran, but makes great
decisions and has awesome field awareness.

Is he 17 years old, or number 17? Or both? You're right, I know who
you're talking about. Breaks, hucks, cuts, and d are all there....

More women's FOTY hype:

A phenomenal women's player is Rachael Westgate, #26 on Wisconsin's
Bella Donna. Originally from Andover, MA, Rachael came to us this year
with an extensive understanding and love of the game that translated
directly into her quick integration into our starting defensive line.
Sick layout d's, fantastic throws, and aggressive, consistently open
cuts are all in the daily life of Rachael Westgate. She's an amazing
team player, pouring heart and soul into Bella, whether it's
dominating like a 5th year on the field, shouting like crazy on the
sideline, outstripping most of the team in workouts, or lifting on her
own time, Rachael embodies everything that Bella Donna strives for.

Rachael Westgate for Central Region FOTY 2009. Watch for her in
Northfield this weekend at regionals where she'll be dominating both
the d and the o lines: #26.

Can definitely verify this. Luther #21 EJ easily gets this title.
Every time I watched him play and played against him, he was playing
big points and making big plays, none bigger than the uni-point
against Minnesota. You have to have great confidence in calling an iso
match up for your freshman to win a bid for natties. Kid has got sick
bids, great skills, top notch athleticism, great decision making, and
he's extremely fun to watch. Central Region should be on notice, he's
coming for many years. He's got to be a deadlock after this weekend
for FOTY. My two cents,

Agreed.
Johnson took over the field. There is no way that any other freshman
in the Central Region had as many big plays as this guy did. From
insane D's to amazing puts and cuts that made his defender just look
silly, EJ is by far a leader for FOTY.

I agree that Eric Johnson a big, solid part of his team. Also, #9 on
the U of Minnesota, Greg Arenson, had some very impressive pulls and
play in general from where I was standing. (I was standing on the end
of the field watching the UofM v. Luther game.) It says a lot for
freshmen to have such big roles on their nationals-bound teams, and
Eric and Greg are just two examples of a larger trend. Props to the
MN High School Ultimate League.

Even more women's FOTY hype:

Adrienne Rust is the fastest improving ultimate player I have seen.
She is originally from McFarland, WI. We picked her up in the fall (at
a pick up game), without any prior ultimate experience to this year
she has quickly made her game better everyday. She started right
handed even though she is left handed...and has made the switch from
throwing right handed to left handed (Starting March 20th ish 2009)
phenomenally.

She is one of the fastest cutters in the region. In addition, at
practice she is always working on her hucks. Adrienne's deep D is
incredible; her prior basketball and soccer experience helps her give
her mad ups.

Adrienne is always working hard on and off the field. She has become
extremely interested and excited about ultimate over the course of the
season (always asking people to throw, asking for tips from older
players, our coach...she was even practicing fakes in her dorm room!)

Keep an eye on Adrienne Rust! Vote for her for Central Region FOTY!

If you're going to vote anyone for FOTY from St. Cloud, it's Dave 'DK'
Kuettner. He still has eligibility, right?

DK has at least 2 years left. When they abolish the rule banning self
macs, he's coming back and he will be unstoppable.

I saw this gir, #8, l make the most dominant catch of the weekend.
Shitting my pants at her being a freshman. A diving stab at a blading
huck dying quickly in front of her that made me blink twice in
disbelief. How she stone-cold caught it, belly-flopped, face planted,
and still held the disc was unbelievable. I'm still having trouble
with this. As I was trying to make sense of that play, about 5
minutes later in the game to go vs. UW-Fennig, another girl on Iowa
State made another crazy layout grab. Can't remember her number, but
those made my tourney highlight reel.

That is correct. She is a really solid player. Great grabs, throws,
and layouts.

You might be talking about Jasmine Draper in the second part. Did she
have to take a sub afterward? I saw a few wicked layouts by her this
weekend.

I've said this in a previous post, but Rachael Westgate (#26 on Bella
Donna) is a ridiculous freshman. You may not have realized she was a
freshman while she was layout d'ing your best player and throwing full-
field hucks for scores. Read about her here:

The other physics-defying catch, a few points later, was made by #12,
4th year senior captain, Jasmine "Jazz" Draper. She was making similar
plays on defense all weekend. Jazz Draper - All Region 2009. If I
could get the Iowa State "men" to bid half as much as those girls we
might have been a decent team.

Greg Arenson is the most consistent freshmen in the central region (if
not the country). If we implemented a draft, Greg would be my first
overall pick due to his substantial utility. On defense he suffocates
handlers but further, jump D's the best receivers in college. On a
turn, he's the cog on offense. He's the ideal defender with his
uncanny pulls, athleticism, size, intensity, and offensive production
for the break. He's the emotional leader of his team as a freshman,
and his decision making skills are veteran-like. He's able to
consistently break marks and shined as he hit his target throughout
the weekend with supernal hucks. Greg is an epic talent, a righteous
human being, and the premier freshman ultimate player in the central
region.

Yeah... If only the kids wrote a song about THAT Arenson, we'd have
the propaganda all set up for his run at the award.

He's Greg Arenson
He pulls Uncannily

He jump d's (do do do do)
He has intensity (whoop whoop!)

He's Greg Arenson
He's really coo - oo- ool

His spleen is healed, he's veteran-like
He's A STAND UP GUY!

(c'mon you Herzl Alums. get on board with this!!!)

Greg is a consistent player with great pulls, and in different year he
might be the clear cut FOTY. However, Eric Johnson stood out more than
any other frosh all weekend. In the Minnesota/Luther game, EJ caught
and threw more goals Greg, got more Ds and overall had a larger impact
on that game. One game is not the measure of a player, but EJ was
doing it against every team in every game.
