2014 College Tour

The 2014 College Tour is presented by Spin Ultimate

Skyd is proud to present the Spin Ultimate All-American Team for the 2014 season.  The Spin Ultimate All-American Team program awards the top players in each division for their excellence on the field as players and leaders. The recipients will receive a Spin 1/4 zip and will be inducted at the 2014 College Championships in Cincinnati. Congratulations to this year’s selected players.

Trent Dillon, Pittsburgh – Many questioned if Pitt would drop off after last years second straight title. A third straight looks to be in reach, partly with the strong play of Dillon.

Will Driscoll, Texas – The TUFF star has done most everything he can to keep this team amongst the top (watch him here if you disagree). His ability to get open at all times, and defense, stands out most for Driscoll this season.

Dylan Freechild, Oregon – Ego find themselves in a familiar place thanks to stellar play by Freechild. As a new Callahan winner is named, he has reminded us all why he won last year.

Robert Goode, UNC-Wilmington – Last year in Madison, Goode stood out with teammate Tommy Lamar. This season for the Seamen, Goode has looked like the star player – displaying the same defensive intensity we became accustomed to at Easterns & beyond.

Christian Johnson, North Carolina – Johnson has been hard to plan for with opposing teams this season, as other Darkside players have stepped up their game. Game in, game out, he’s still been the fastest on the field, and a burden for all challengers.

Eli Kerns, UC-Davis – Ultimately, UC-Davis was unable to make Nationals but without Kerns, they could’ve finished even further away from Ohio. Kerns is a difference maker every, single time he steps on the field.

Chris LaRocque, Florida State – DUF was strong all season long, with the play from LaRocque at catalyst most every game. Offensively and defensively, LaRocque was an important piece for DUF’s return to Nationals.

Jimmy Mickle, Colorado – The Callahan nominee has led Mamabird through a strong season leading up to Nationals. Can he lead them to a strong performance in Ohio, and possibly the championship?

Tim MorrissyColorado – Sure, Mamabird has one other player making a  name for himself – but Morrissey is continuing strong play that comes over from U-23’s and club this past summer. He’s been just as flashy yet important on the field this spring.

Jeremy Nixon, Harvard – Another strong player from Harvard, the Callahan nominee from the team, Nixon, has been a standout particularly on offense. His strong cutting opens up the field creates plays not only for himself, but opens lanes for other Redline players.

FOTY – John Stubbs, Harvard – If you haven’t yet seen the younger Stubbs on the field, pay attention to Harvard at Nationals. As a d-line player, he’s fit right in for Redline.

COTY – Greg Vassar, UNC-Wilmington – Did anyone expect UNC-Wilmington to win their region over UNC Darkside? With Vassar’s high expectations, effective strategy and desire to push for more, the Seamen did just that.
