Dartmouth’s Jack Verzuh was named the winner of the 2019 Callahan Award this evening. This is Dartmouth’s second Callahan winner in the last three years and second overall, after Angela Zhu won the 2017 Callahan award.
Verzuh has been a dominant player in the Division since their freshman year and has won two championships (2017 and 2018) with a chance to make it a three-peat tomorrow in the National final after defeating UNC in the semis earlier this afternoon.
Verzuh won Ultiworld’s 2017 College Women’s Player of the Year award and has been a first-team All-American for two straight years. Verzuh has also had great success on the international stage, winning multiple U20 and U24 World Championships and a World Ultimate Club Championship with Seattle Riot.
“Jack Verzuh is the heart and soul of Dartmouth Ultimate,” reads their Callahan nomination.
Verzuh is the best thrower in the Women’s Division — and might also be the best big. They have the ability to go downfield and sky for goals or sit back in the handler set and carve up a defense with break throws and powerful hucks. They’ve been an undisputed top three player in the College Division for basically their entire career, and it still feels like they’re just getting started.
