Ben Banyas

Ben Banyas has been playing ultimate since 1998, and coaching since 2002. He has coached in four College Nationals (including semis), played at Club Nationals (after 20 years), Masters Nationals (finalist) & Masters Worlds (semifinalist), and gotten eliminated at Sectionals by a B team. He was an All-Region player due to his hucks, only to have to learn how to throw again after his elbow was shattered. He’s experienced pretty much all of the ups and downs our sport has to offer. Most recently, he has played for Baltimore Rest Stop (2017-present), Pittsburgh Temper (2019), and coached the University of Pittsburgh Danger (2015-2019).
