I’ll leave you with one more bio for good measure.

George Kovacs – Currently the PUL President. But he’s worn many hats, as you can tell from the pic above.

Name: George Kovacs
Hometown: Huntsville, ON
Years Playing Ultimate: 19

Favourite Ultimate Memory: That time it gave me a wife. Love you, Emily!

Why do you still play Ultimate?Why would I stop?

What’s your “signature play” or throw?I’m torn between the sneaky D taking away the hard in or the in-bounds one-handed ballerina catch on O. Both so satisfying!

Who’s another PUL player you love to play with, and why?
Almost all of them! One of the best moments on the PUL calendar is that week before a draft league or tourney (Indoor, Summer Wednesday, Sun Jam), and find out who you’re playing with. Inevitably, there is 1) that one player you love, but haven’t teamed with in what feels like forever; 2) that one player you’ve always wanted to team with but somehow never have; and 3) that player you don’t even know, but is going to turn to be so much fun to play with. I’ve never had a draft team that didn’t yield all three of these pleasures.

What do you do other than play Frisbee?
I’m a prof at Trent. I get paid to read and think about and talk about Greek and Roman myth and literature. It’s awesome.
