Rasmussen follows in the footsteps of his club and pro teammate Beau Kittredge, who announced his move to the Roughnecks earlier this week.
Rasmussen has been one of the AUDL’s best players since joining the league in 2014. He made the All-AUDL 1st Team in 2014 playing with the San Francisco Flamethrowers. Last year, he recorded 18 goals, 14 assists, and 5 blocks while sporting a 93% completion percentage.
The Roughnecks will look to continue their aggressive player acquisition in the coming weeks.
Elections are underway for all three USA Ultimate Club divisions to elect a new player representative. The announcements of each Division’s candidates were made this week via Division Council Google+ pages and reposted on Reddit (M/W/X) by the remaining player rep in each division.
The candidates are:
Men’s: Grant Boyd (Sant Barbara Condors), Tyler Kinley (Seattle Sockeye, soon to be Michigan High Five), Peter Prial (Washington DC Truck Stop)
Mixed: Kimmey Hardesty (San Francisco Deadly Viper Assassin Squad – Women’s), Andrea Haynes (Boston Pleasuretown), An-Chi Tsou (San Francisco Polar Bears)
Womens: Hannah Leathers (Atlanta Ozone), Charlie Mercer (Seattle Riot) (more…)
