Some signs are pointing to the fact that Bart Watson will be playing with Revolver at Club Championships. It was first noted by a Skyd correspondent that his name was listed on the roster on Revolver’s team page on USAU Ultimate. Sources not on the team have confirmed that he is indeed on the roster. Email confirmation has been sent to Revolver leadership, but at this time there has been no response.
Speculation holds that Revolver left Watson on the official roster despite his absence throughout the season. Watson played with the squad at Worlds in Japan earlier this year and was critical in their run to the title. This could be a huge boost for the Revolver offense that has been inconsistent and would perhaps move Ashlin Joye back to his former position on the defensive line. Joye has had a great season so far, but his firepower has been sorely missed on the opposite side with injuries to Mac Taylor and others.
If this is completely confirmed, does this mean Revolver is the favorite coming into next weekend?
Stay tuned for any updates.
