5 Sam Chatterton (Sam C-K), UCSC,

Sam more than deserves to be on that list. He did what 5 of those guys
couldn't in the last two weeks - lead his team to Nationals. And, he did it
out of the toughest region in the country. From what I heard, he played every
point of the final two games.

Just trying to keep the Callahan voting true,

how can anyone not include Sam C-K on this list. If you have seen
santa cruz play this year, you know that he is a huge part of their
team, and although I did not watch NW regionals, I am willing to bet
that his play on sunday was one of the main reasons that they are
going to nationals. I am not going to say he carried their team past
UW, berkley and oregon, because I wasn't there, but from what I heard,
he played most, if not all of the points on sunday, and they did get
the second bid from the NW. It is unfortunate that cruz tends to stay
in california, because if they had travelled more this year, Sam would
be at the top of this list.

My guess is, more than that. And the four that did "lead their team to
Nationals" had a lot more help than Sam did. Take away Whit from
Stanford or Mickey from Colorado, I'd put money on them winning their
regions anyhow. Rook and Wang might be slightly more important to their
respective teams, but I bet they still would have been up there. Take
Sam away from Santa Cruz and I think they lose in quarters, and again
sometime soon after that. I don't mean to suggest it's all Sam and
Jeremy, but it's a whole lot Sam and Jeremy.

Sometimes hard to see the stuff he does because, as has been posted
before, so many people on Illinois make solid contributions. But... If
you're not from the midwest and haven't seen him from Big Tens on, you
missed a LOT. He brought back one of the greatest greatests I've seen vs
Purdue in Champaign. He can burn his man deep for the huck or cut back
and be on the throwing end of a huck score. Either way. On defense he
has been the single most dominating player for Illinois, especially at
regionals when it counted. He demanded the challenge of guarding Rook as
much as possible, especially when Joe preferred he not and save himself
for O. Then, at 14-13 Illinois he baited Rook up the line and D'ed
away the potential tying upwinder for Michigan, when Illinois' sideline
seemed sure that Rook had just burned him up the line for the score.

Clutch.

Based on who I've seen on this list...it should either going to Sam
C-K or Rook. Those two guys are the man for their team and play very
similar offensively and (great) defensively. It would be a difficult
choice, but I would still probably go with Rook and if you haven't
seen him play, you'll know why at Nationals.

note: i have not seen anyone from the NC, GA or Tufts play, but they
better be superstars in order to hang with those 2.

just my 2 cents

If you were at the Northwest Regionals you saw Stanford Superfly roll,
and leading the way was Erin "Peedoo" Percival. She's a defensive
specialist and her layout blocks and skying d's were in full effect
this weekend. Her offense was flawless too-- got open at will and
assisted at least half of Stanford's points. No doubt Percival is at
the top of that list.

ok, 2nd tier callahan nominess are getting their shit blown by their
respective teammates and/or coaches, time to do my duty for the guy i think
has been the best player in college ultimate the last... 2 years (sorry
alex, feel free to kick my ass at practice).

every point in the last two games at regionals? try every point of every
game that ever meant anything this year (but mike, like uncw i'm sure, santa
cruz also has a few other players who fall into this category). at regionals
that meant leading his team who was down at half in 4 out of 6 games to a
5-1 record and the 2nd spot out of the northwest (playing ~140 of 145
points). of course only those who were there can truly appreicate what that
meant, but as a black tide alum said to me after the final game... "that was
the toughest regionals i've ever seen". to get an idea, the scores for all
sunday games were, 15-11, 15-11, 15-11, 15-10, 15-11, 15-13, 15-13, 15-13,
15-12 (might be a point off in 1 or 2 games).

no need to get into details of what he can do, everyone can do everything
right?

all the top canidates are awesome players, no doubt.

i've seen 7 of the "top 11" play... when its all said and done, only 2-3
guys are legitimate contenders, sammy c-k is one of those guys.

Just a bit of trivia. Back in '91 Sam C-K and Nord were in the same
middle school class of 50 students (total 150 in the school) at a
school where they learned to play on the asphalt parking lot cause
there wasn't a stitch of grass. If Tufts can come out of the East
there will be 6 former NOMS students in Spokane (3Carleton, 2 Santa
Cruz and 1 Tufts)

Few competitive players manage to be both one of the best players on the
field as well as one of the most fun to play against. Mike Zalisk is
both one of the most competitive and one of the most spirited players
in the northeast.

Zalisk not only makes big plays, he creates them. If anyone was watching
the Tufts/Colorado semi at Easterns, you got to see Zalisk and Pallaver
putting together a two man highlight reel. Mike can be counted on, not
just to come up big when he needs to, but to create plays with both his
puts and his legs. Few players that I have ever played agains are able
to shift their mass around as quickly as Zalisk can- this makes him one
of the best cutters I have seen, as well as a damn hard defender to get
open on.

Most importantly though, Zalisk makes the players around him play better.
His presence brings his team up to a higher level. This is a big reason
why last year Tufts stomped on both Harvard and Brown during sectionals
and regionals, but after losing Mike to an injury in parctice, couldn't
put it together for nationals. It's also one of the main reasons that
Tufts, despite losing a good deal of their talent from last year, is one
of the top teams in the northeast and the country this year.

Tufts and Harvard have had their differences in the past, but Zalisk
certainly has my vote. Frankly, if you've been around northeast ultimate
for long, I don't see how your vote can go anywhere else.

Just a bit of trivia. In '91 Sam C-K and Alex Nord were learning to
play ultimate together on asphalt (no grass at the school) at a small
(150 students) middle school in Seattle. Could it be that one middle
school (NOMS) will produce back to back Callahan winners??
If Tufts qualifies out of the east there will be 6 NOMS players in
Spokane. (2 UCSC, 3 Carleton and 1 Tufts)

As an old friend and avid supporter of Samuel Clemens Kirchmeyer I
would like talk him up a little. That's what rsd is for this time of
year. I have had the pleasure of playing with Sam since 7th grade.
We've played Juniors Nationals, Worlds and many a Potlatch together
and I can honestly say that there is no one I would rather have on any
team I'm playing on. He's in better shape than the other guy (by the
other guy I mean 99.9% of ultimate players), he's faster than the
other guy, he's quicker than the other guy, he's smarter than the
other guy and he smells like roses after a tournament.

Having seen most of the other contenders for the Callahan play, I can
say without reserve and with only minor bias, that Sam deserves this
award. He is without a doubt one of college ultimate's players (in
the capitalized PLAYER sense of the word). He has led his team out of
the hardest region in the country (honestly...who thought Cruz would
make it out over Oregon?) and although his last name doesn't rhyme
with Slow'brien, he's got my vote and should have yours.

Nicely put Dave.
I agree, Zalisk is a great candidate for Callahan 2002. Coming from
the newest team in the Boston Metro Section, (Wentworth Institute of
Technology) Mike and the guys from Tufts have been quite nice and
accomidating to us. I played against him last fall during the Beanpot
league game (even though I doubt that he remembers since we were such
an easy win) but the times I was matched up against him, I found it
very hard to read his cuts. and his puts.....nothing short of perfect
placement... coming only second to myself (personal plug :) )
anyway... even on the sideline, he is such a presence among his
teamates. always trying to step up his peers.
ok...i think that might be enough to help him out.... like dave said
in his post, if you are in the northeast, your vote should be going to
Zalisk.. (or myself)

one quick note... I would like to thank the Tufts B-Men for forfeiting
their games at sectionals to let me play with them. i know a few read
rsd and will pass the thanks onto the rest of the team...(fat ass)
The Northeast is fun and spirit.....with a twist if intensity

Junior is gonna be pissed, but I'd like to show my support for his
callahan nomination.

I've coached Zalisk for 4 years. I know him well. I've coached many
excellent players, and played with some of the best players ever to
play the game. Mike has all of the attributes of a top-level ultimate
player: great throws, field sense, cutting, defense, and poise. Above
all, he's a great TEAMmate and a great leader. He is the heart of the
Tufts TEAM, but never wants to be its focus. He's always asking how to
improve his game and how he can help the TEAM.

He's the real-deal. No question. Junior. Callahan. 2002.

Dito what everybody has said about Mikey Zalisk.

I was his captain for 2 years (after which he was my captain for one
year), and Mikey is perhaps the best teamate I've had on any team
ever. He always puts in 100%, helps his teamates, never loses his
temper, and usually produces especially in the clutch. The first big
win Tufts had during our period of sucess in recent years was when we
beat Harvard in the finals of sectionals in 99. Mikey was a freshmen,
played every point, scored about half our goals, and had a few key
blocks as the middle middle of our cup.

Since then Mikey has improved in all aspects of his game. His once
shaky forehand now gets ripped upwind for a 70 yard put to a deep cut.
His cuts have always been great, but now I'd say they are unstopable.

Nobody works as hard as Mikey either. Everytime he makes you fall
over with a sharp cut, just remember that he spent his entire sophmore
year, and nationals of his junior year on crutches. One does not
rebound from those type of injuries without a great deal of hardwork.

If you've seen or played against Mike, I'm sure you're considering him
for your Callahan vote, if you haven't, than you should.

Sam should definately win the Callahan Award, no matter what happens
at Nationals. (However, if SC gets blown out this time it will really
put a crimp on the Northwest Region AGAIN, so make sure it doesn't
ahppen Sam, Jeremy and co. The NW region deserves more bids, everyone
knows that, now go out and prove it.)

One thing I noticed this year both playing against SC and watching
them play against other teams is that Sam CK always plays as hard and
as fast as he can. His supporting crew, aside from Jeremy Cram, was
far more inexperienced thatn the other competitive NW teams, and yet
they are going to Nationals. Sam plays every point, and he plays
every point well. If he doesn't win Callahan, it will be no less
dissapointing than Jason Kidd not winning MVP. You have to look at
what he's done, how he has played, and where his team is going.

I have played against Sam my entire carreer, and I can say humbly that
I cannot guard him. When we played them at Sectionals, the only way
we finally were able to beat them were to put either Me and Kevin, Me
and Jeff, or Jeff and Kevin on him going up for the discs with him
sandwiched, while he still caught every other. He is just at a higher
level than anyone else out there.

Good luck Sam and rest of Slugs, it was fun battleing for those 5 long
years. Enjoy the callahan award cause you deserve it.
