The New York Rumble have made a big splash in MLU free agency, signing their first non-returner in Isaac Saul.

Isaac Saul first experienced the game he loves as a small boy growing up in the Mercer County Ultimate Disc League community. Once he touched a disc for the first time he knew he didn’t want to do anything else.
In 8th grade Isaac began playing with older brother Noah at Pennsbury High School. He went on to win four state championships and two Eastern High School Championships. In 2008 Saul was a member of the world champion US Juniors team in Vancouver, Canada.
He is a born leader, captaining both Pennsbury and the Delaware Valley Youth Team in 2009. After high school he continued his winning tradition playing at the University of Pittsburgh, where he was the center handler and captain for the back to back College Champions. He has played in Club Nationals with the team Oakland.
“Isaac is a proven winner at every level of the game,” says Coach Anthony Nuñez. “We cannot wait for him to continue that tradition with the Rumble.”
When asked why he picked the Rumble to showcase his talents, Isaac said, “While I believe in knowing your roots, I also believe in winning. Despite my strong connection to Philadelphia, I’ve opted to play for the Rumble because I believe in both their talent and their coaching staff. It was an opportunity to play in a new market with a new group of players that I simply couldn’t refuse.”
This is the first of a few off-season signings that the Rumble hope to make for the upcoming season.
