Players to Watch
Mike Hennessy: With the departure of Isaac Saul, Hennessy will be thrust into a major role running the offense from the apex handler position in 2015. After being a rock and having a very productive 2014 season, look for Hennessy to play an even bigger role in 2015. An added bonus – if he scores, no one celebrates better than Hennessy.
Joe Anderson: Regarded as one of the best defenders in the league the past two seasons, look for Anderson to have an epic matchup versus Boston superstar Jeff Graham on Saturday. After Boston’s extremely impressive Week 1, the Rumble will have to win this matchup if they plan on containing the Boston offense.
Chris Kocher: With a long and impressive resume in his young ultimate career, Kocher looks to make an immediate impact on the Rumble. A very strong athlete, Kocher is calm, cool, collected and always consistent on both sides of the disc. Although he may be one of the youngest players on the team, he is certainly one of the biggest names to watch this season.
Scott Xu: A late addition to the team this offseason, Xu has been great on both sides of the disc so far this preseason. Look for Xu to quickly make a name for himself on both the team and in the league.
