The University of Florida Club Team is once again churning out talent that is making their mark

deep into the Club Season. As Florida United and Vicious Cycle head to Regionals this weekend,

here is a quick look at some of the players who will have an impact in Atlanta, and on into the

College Season just around the corner.

Florida United

James Dahl

One of the engines of the Defense, both locking down on a handler, and then churning for

the hard yards on a turnover. James typically carries a chip on his shoulder that fuels a very

competitive spirit. James combines speed and quickness to be able to put stress on his matchup

on both sides of the disc. His willingness to throw his body on defense allows him to recover

to spaces it doesn’t look like he can get to and produce takeways. His signature blocks are high

layouts on passes into the endzone. His energy combined with a growing composure will be

critical for United’s chances to pull an upset and return to Nationals.

 

Bobby Ley

A combo cutter/handler for the Offense, Bobby continues to show the ability to create separation

anywhere on the field. Armed with quality deep throws and an array of break throws, his

versatility makes him a difficult cover. With his first step, Bobby gains an advantage and then

has the field sense to get to the right spot for his thrower. His big play ability, be it going up over

a pack of taller players, or finding a breakside window for a back breaking huck have been his

calling card. Like his captain counterpart, he’ll need to show maturity against Chain Lightning

and Ring of Fire, picking the appropriate times to go big and avoid going home.

Vicious Cycle

Jacob Dummeldinger

Each season Jacob adds more to his game. Already a frightening defender who uses his length

as a weapon, Jacob has turned his attention to growing on the offensive side, taking on handling

responsibilities while still looking to get downfield as a deep threat. Jacob can always take

on the toughest matchup on the opposing team, but is now forcing the opponent to play their

best defenders on him. If Jacob can impose his will at Regionals, Vicious can go deep into the

bracket.

 

Tanner Repasky

While usually faster and able to jump higher than his matchup, Tanner has started to apply his

considerable smarts to the frisbee field. Tanner is one of the best on the team of playing his guy

but also being able to chase down passes on help defense. With increased confidence throwing

a completion in whichever direction necessary, he is removing a team’s ability to let him come

under to the disc, making his deep game a true threat. Tanner will always add a big jumping

play, the challenge is the little parts of the game as he continues to learn.

 

Danny Bishop

When a cut is needed, Danny will have already made it. Always in the right place at the needed

time, Danny immediately knows where he needs to get to downfield. This season, he has added

the ability to do the same in the dump space, improving his throwing and adding a variety of

stop/go and turnaround moves in the short spaces. Because of his abilities on offense, his defense

is often underrated, but his speed and well-timed dives produce blocks.

 

Billy O’Bryan

An emerging star, Billy does a little (or a lot) of everything. He pulls, and gets blocks on the

first pass. He gets deep blocks on taller receivers and goes up huge over anyone his size. He can

huck or he can outrun someone in the small spaces. Billy demonstrates pure joy when playing,

expressed through constant effort. Billy will always produce an amazing play for his team, and

continues to learn to make all the blue collar plays to go with the flair.

 

Bradley Seuntjens

A consistent generator of takeaways, Bradley has made his mark in the year he has been in

Gainesville. Consistently the first to make the diving play, and nearly certain to be the leader in

important blocks. Strong and fast, Bradley can manage any matchup, and is a monster on a jump

ball. Bradley has made major strides as a thrower, last season able to consistently throw a dump

pass to advantage, and now being able to hit the up field throws.

 

Patrick Gettino

Non-stop effort is constantly pouring from Patrick. Aggravated by even the slightest gain for his

matchup, Patrick will always outwork his opponent. Armed with building confidence, Patrick is

no longer content to just get blocks, becoming a churning cutter on offense and starting to look

for his throws. As he continues to use it, his flick has good power, and can be a weapon. The

best sign for a Patrick team is a volleyball spike D on a deep pass, sure to mean he is firing on all

cylinders.

 

Aaron Spector

A workhorse, who even when he looks gassed can always summon more effort. His mental

discipline is always an edge, and shows an ability to quickly pick up more and more knowledge

of the game. Through the Club Season, Aaron has learned to play with the disc, able to move

his mark and continue the motion of the offense to advantage. Aaron produces for his team in a

manner that makes them work harder.

 

Vicious Cycle was within one point of upsetting Orlando Omen in their back yard at Florida

Sectionals. They’ve continued to progress throughout the season, and will be a handful for the

top seeds at Regionals. Look for at least one upset late in the weekend.

 

Florida United looks to return to Nationals, and features former Florida players Dustin

Travaglini, Joe Crinkley, Chris Gibson, Cole Sullivan, Alton Gaines, Travis Catron, Bennett

Wachob, Jason Silverman and Cyle Van Auken. They’ve had a season of mixed results playing

a highly competitive schedule. Injuries have plagued the team through the season. With two bids

to Frisco, TX on the line, it will take overcoming one of the Regional favorites Altanta Chain

Lightning or Raleigh Ring of Fire to advance.
