The AUDL has finally arrived in Boston. A city so rich in ultimate history - from the days of DoG to the Boston triple of 2016 to the dynasty of Brute Squad - finally has an AUDL team. “We are beyond excited to get our debut season started,” team owner Jay Talerman said. “New England has been a hotbed for talent at the club and college levels for a long time, so it is about time we got an AUDL team here. We’re incredibly lucky that our roster features players from all over New England and can really be New England’s team. We will have all our games streaming online, a game on Fox Sports 2, and a roster to compete with the best teams in the league. We plan on carrying on Boston’s rich history of winning in ultimate, and in other professional sports in general.”
Glory will be fielding a stacked roster with athletes from all over New England. Club teams Wild Card, Dig, Slow White, Darkwing, Sprout, and Big Wrench will all be represented by Boston’s AUDL team. These players have already started to come together, build chemistry, and make some big plays in practice.
Players to watch:
- Ben Sadok: Londy will be helping to anchor the O-Line this year. The feisty handler who has represented UMass, DiG, and Sprout will be a primary handler. His ability to make any throw and move off the disc is something that will have other AUDL teams in fear.
- Tannor Johnson: At 6’4” Tannor’s abilities as a downfield cutter are only matched by his throws. He’s been playing elite level ultimate since he was just 18 years old, and is poised to make a mark in the AUDL.
- Ethan Fortin: With AUDL experience, Ethan will be a major boost for Glory. Having registered 19 assists with Philadelphia in 2019, his skill and experience will help stabilize an incredibly talented D-Line this year.
