Play Of The Year 2020 Final, Presented by Friction Gloves

Let us celebrate what ultimate we got in 2020 by picking the Play of the Year!

Our Play of the Year 2020 bracket is presented by Friction Gloves; all opinions are those of the author. Want to make highlights of your own? Try Friction Gloves!

It’s hard to recall clearly, but we did actually have ultimate in 2020. Most of it occurred in the first few months of the calendar, though there was some isolated play throughout the year. In those early moments, nobody knew we’d be almost entirely without ultimate for a long time and played with the fervor that’s made so many great plays over the years.

This year’s bracket is different than our traditional annual reader-voted competitions. With so much less ultimate, we’re doing one big celebration of the blocks, catches, throws, and whatever other wacky stuff y’all come up with. There will be simply one play to rule them all from 2020.

Over the next couple of weeks, we’re inviting you, the Ultiworld readers, to vote for your favorite of the remaining finalists.

Check out the two finalists and vote below, then check back to see which play is crowned the Play of the Year! The fourth round of voting starts now and closes on Tuesday, February 23 at 12 PM Eastern.

The Final

Jessie Sun vs. Phillip Sellers

This is it, folks! After three rounds of voting, Jessie Sun’s comeback catch and Phillip Sellers’ defensive dive have emerged as our two finalists. Sellers has been a freight train throughout the bracket, barreling over Viktorsson in their semifinal with roughly two-thirds of the votes between them. But don’t look now, but Sun won her matchup by the same margin! We should be in for a thrilling conclusion.

Jessie Sun – Pittsburgh Danger (USAU D-I College Women’s)
