Power vs. finesse!
March 3, 2022 by Keith Raynor in Awards, Opinion with 0 comments
One of our most popular series to begin each year, it’s time to look back at last year and let our readers decide some of the top plays of the year from 2021.
We watched many hours of game footage and highlight reels to hunt down the hucks, breaks, bombs, dimes, and everything else; believe us, there were more than enough options to fill up this bracket, so even some worthy nominees were left on the cutting room floor. Over the next week, we’re inviting you, Ultiworld readers, to vote for your favorite of the finalists selected.
Check out our finalists below and pick the 2021 winner! The final round of voting starts now and closes on Friday, March 4 at 4PM Eastern.
Long vs. Farren
Elijah Long – Raleigh Flyers (AUDL)
So far, so good for the oh-so-smooth scoober slinging Long, who has yet to be challenged in this bracket. He might just win the Throw of the Year for a toss that was called back, which is an accomplishment all its own. But this type of daring just doesn’t came around at the elite level often.
Nicky Farren – Nashville Shine (USAU Club)
After an outstanding round one, Farren had a tougher test in round two, but still had almost 60% of the matchup’s vote by the time the polls closed. This is simply a throw that speaks for itself. It goes really far and drops right in. What else is there to add?
