EDIT: We're taking a break for kittens, but will answer more questions later. We are a semi-pro Ultimate Disc team out of Dallas, Texas. Our AMA will include Beau Kittredge, Jimmy Mickle and Dylan Freechild. Between them, there are 2 Callahan winners (college MVP), AUDL 2x MVP (league MVP), and multiple national and world championships. They are also some of the first players ever be able to play Ultimate fulltime.
Who has the best throws on the team? Be honest. If you really, realllly think about it... isn't there only one correct answer?
Not Matt Bennett- JM
Excluding yourselves, who would you put on a universe O line and D line? Let's say you can't use the same player on both lines.
O line: Ashlin, Cassidy, Rehder, Joel, Simon Higgins, Kurt, Kai Marshall. D line: Matt Jackson, Stanley, Russell, Ryan Farrell, Henry, Kanner, Little Stubbs, young Martin Cochran.
Who has been your favorite opponent in the South this year?
I've really enjoyed our games against Austin, they have a bunch of talent a a great home crowd. -JM
What does your in season training look like outside of practice?
What does your off season training look like?
Most importantly, what's each of your favorite brewery?
Also, I've really enjoyed watching your games this year. Tried to catch them live if I could but if not I try to watch the replays.
In season training - right now is rehab 2-3 hours in the morning, practice/track/pilates in the evening. Followed by Netflix and chill. And snacks.
Off season involves lots of weights, lots of track, tanning, swimming, Netflix and chill. And snacks.
Favorite brewery - Revolver. -BK
For someone who knows nothing about this sport what would be the first start of conversation to fake it to make it about knowing it and without using google?
Use words like scoober, force side, flick, huck it, cup, poach, play honest, spike it, pull, dump, handler.
Combine into any order. Such as, "Did you see that guy cut force side for the flick, good thing the handler saw the poach and threw the scoober instead." - BK
I wear #50 in the name of the man who said to work hard for something for an entire life. Ill prob change it next year though. Im a foot shorter than beau but im taking the club season off to get stronger at lifting things up and putting them down until i can jump out the roof. Wont you write more, beau? Your stories have been good to read, especially that prisoner one.
Hey push_pass, yeah you should definitely choose your own number and carve your own destiny. And just for you, I will write something. I won't enjoy it, but I'll do it. Hugs. - BK
Money, beautiful women, fast cars, motorcycles, good food, snacks, Netflix and chill. - BK
Do you guys ever get tired of hearing the drunken Apes of Wrath crowd chant Kai related things all the time at home games?
What kind of advice would you give to someone who has aspirations to be on a semi-pro ultimate team post-college?
The best way to make a team is by being an athletic defender and trying out for a team that might not have the strongest roster. See: AUDL Power Rankings. -BK
How would you guys suggest a newcomer to practe and eventually master how to cut and when to cut?
Good question, Sebisteel. I would say understanding timing is the key to proper cutting. Timing is a result of knowing both your thrower and the position of your defender. - BK
Do you think ultimate can be a sport that appeals to the masses and competes with the NFL, NBA and such?
Yes. It has everything a successful sport needs, we just need greater visibility. We are in a good spot with all the live streaming broadcasts and new media, something that the other pro leagues are implementing. At the Roughnecks, we are really trying to step it up in a market like DFW, that has every major and minor sports team. - BK
This is a deep one. Where does it go? I assume it goes into hibernation until the long winter stand is over. Thank you. - BK
Shoulders, ankles, knees, hamstrings and the worst and most painful of all, pride. -BK
Would you rather fight seven duck sized horses, or one horse sized duck?
Definitely duck size horses. A horse sized duck is terrifying. -JM
Yes! We're hoping to do something cool with him this off season involving a Tesla. - BK
