Quote Of The Day: Karl-Anthony Towns

Karl-Anthony Towns

6’11” Kentucky alum Karl-Anthony Towns, expected to go #1 in the NBA draft this year, spoke recently at his high school, St. Joseph’s, about playing ultimate:

“I just think it’s really cool. I mean, it’s very fun. It was very different. That’s the thing I love. I love trying all sports out. I spent some time trying lacrosse out, that didn’t work very well, I’m not very good at it. I pitched, I played baseball, I played tennis with my sister. I just have an intriguing aspect in myself. I get intrigued by any sport and I want to try it out so ultimate Frisbee was a huge thing here at St. Joe’s, especially with leagues created for it. So I joined the league, had a lot of fun playing it and enjoyed it a lot, especially when you have the height I have it was easy to catch.”

Long-time player Adam Zagoria has more on the story over at SNY. You won’t be surprised to learn that both the MLU and the AUDL would love to have Towns join their leagues.
