UNC Scholarship Recipients

The UNC Darkside team has a small scholarship for ultimate players that we reported on earlier this year. Here are the recipient of this year’s awards.

UNC’s Justin Moore wrote to Ultiworld:

[quote]One returner stood above the rest in dedication, off-the-field improvement, extra-running after every practice, leading others in said running/extra work. A student of the game always looking to learn more about his opponents and then determining how to completely shut them down. A positive guy who lets his actions on the field take precedence over talk. Charlie Shaffner is the 2013 Winner of the Returner Scholarship of $500.

The rookie race was much tighter. There were cases presented among the leadership, past and present, for everyone. Most dedicated on and off the field, most positive presence, biggest desire to improve, results from improving, and more. However, we’ve decided to once again split the $1,000 pot to two recipients. Dain Nielsen and Aaron Warshauer have been voted to receive the 2013 Rookie Scholarship 50/50 at $500 apiece.

Incoming freshmen (or rising high school seniors) interested in applying for this scholarship, please contact us at [email protected] — we are eager for the future and hope you’ll join us.[/quote]
