Jonathan Neeley Signs
Jonathan Neeley has committed to the Breeze for 2014!
Jonathan has played for Truck Stop for three years, and will be a captain for them this season. He played college Ultimate at the University of Virginia through 2009. Jonathan has also coached at every level from elementary through adults, and is currently the coach of the George Washington University Men's team and for RISE UP. He also played professionally for the DC Current in 2013.
Jonathan's primary goal for the season is to make it to the finals and for the Breeze to meet Seattle when we get there… that is, so he can enjoy being on the same field with his brother. That works for us.
Alex Jacoski Signs
Alex Jacoski has signed for the Breeze!
We might have announced this earlier, but AJ is currently on tour with Morrill Performance in Asia and took the opportunity to consult the God of Fortune in Singapore for some sage advice before putting pen to paper. Smart move, AJ, and good advice, GoF!
AJ played at Salisbury University from 2005 to 2010, serving as captain for the final 3 years. He played for Medicine Men in 2008, for American Hyperbole in 2010 and 2011, and is coach and captain of my beach #humiliswag.
We're looking forward to seeing AJ back on the continent, and we're also excited about the multitudes of DC Breeze fans in Asia that he will no doubt recruit while he's on tour.
Radhe, Feng Join 2014 Squad
Matt Radhe and Ben Feng have both commited to the DC Breeze for 2014!
Matt (Skunk) returns to the Breeze for a second season after playing for the team during the 2013 season. Skunk played ultimate for Towson for five years including three as Captain and now coaches the team. He played club ultimate for Medicine Men for two years before founding and serving as captain of American Hyperbole (mixed club) for the last five years. We're thrilled to have him back on the squad.
Ben brings with him an impressive background in the sport. He played for Georgetown University from 2007-2012, and since graduation he has been a member of Southpaw (2012), Truck Stop (2013), and also played professional ultimate for the MLU's Philadelphia Spinners in 2013.
We are very excited to add these two talented individuals to our 2014 squad!
The Breeze Are Back
We are thrilled to annouce that five of our most important players from 2013 are returning for the 2014 season! Jon Pressimone, Tim Ryan, Dan Selwyn, Liam Shramko, and Justin Solis have all re-signed with the Breeze, joining newcomers Alex Thorne, Tyler Degirolamo and Chris Kocher and others on a squad this is determined to surpass last year's performance and make a serious run for the playoffs and championship weekend in Toronto this Summer.
"Ensuring we brought Press, TJ, White Hat, Steamboat and Woo all back from last year has been a top priority for Aaron Foreman since the moment last season ended and for and me since I joined the management team in December," new investor and co-owner Don Grage reported. "They were the core of our team last year, and will play that same role again as we build on what they established to reach a whole new level this season. These guys are critical to our plans, our quality on the field, and our overall success as an organization."
