Ultimate isn’t yet to a place where franchises are paying general managers to go out and draft or sign the best players to compete for their club. But that certainly won’t stop us from pretending it is!
We’re back for another one of our favorite annual exercises around the Club Championships — matching our wits against each other in trying to draft the best team of players to win a championship right now made up of those attending Nationals. This year, we’re pitting a trio of Ultiworld staffers against one lucky Ultiworld subscriber who was selected in our Discord.1
Our participants as theoretical GMs for the men’s division draft are Senior Editor Keith Raynor, Editor-in-Chief Charlie Eisenhood, and Staff Writer Alex Rubin of Ultiworld, along with subscriber Matt Graves. Matt graduated from the University of Richmond in 2012. He played on several club teams in the Richmond/Charlottesville area after graduating but never became more than a mediocre-at-best Regionals level player. He found his calling coaching the Richmond Spidermonkeys from 2014-2020 — they were D-III National Champions in 2017 and he won Ultiworld’s DIII COTY in 2019.
We drafted seven players per team. Without further ado, let’s get to the draft grid:
|Dylan Freechild (Sockeye)||John Stubbs |
|Joe White |
(Ring of Fire)
Here is what the drafters had to say about their picks:
