Media exposure: Featured Solo on "NT Scene" in the early 80's. Several pictures in the UNT Daily. Real big stuff.
How I started playing: According to Lee: "I caught freestyle fever from the Air Aces (or some freestyle demo team that came to NTSU (UNT now) in the mid-80's.
Favorite move: Causing a partner to hit a perfect catch or trick by brushing, deflecting, or otherwise feeding them the disc. It's harder than you think to cause this.
Partners past & present: Pierre Laubert. And I wonder where John Leopard (my only TX partner) is today?
Lee has put together some great routines with Peter Laubert over the past few years and has been a finalist in many major freestyle events recently. Their dropless routine in the 2001 FPA World Championships was a thing of beauty, and one of the few dropless routines ever. According to Lee: "I caught freestyle fever from the Air Aces (or some freestyle demo team that came to NTSU (UNT now) in the mid-80's. I led The Kids (that's disc spelled sideways) Ultimate team for a year or two, and freestyled on the side, but that wasn't enough.
In 1987, I moved from Denton, Texas to San Diego, CA because I thought the best freestylers were there. I packed the car, travelled by myself, and didn't know where I was going to stay, so I took my 1986 US Open player list, and started calling player's phone numbers. The only reason I ended up at Hein Hotel on C Street instead of the La Jolla Chateau Ghetto was because Jack Stanton was home and no one was at The Ghetto.
My Favorite drive: Friday afternoon after a long week of work... I'll always cherish driving up Ardath Road towards The Cove (La Jolla Cove), reaching the crest of the hill, and seeing before me the Pacific Ocean, it's clear blue line against the horizon. At that moment every Friday, I was transformed from a tired worker into an excited jammer ready for a Friday afternoon Cove Jam.
Most Memorable Jam Ever: Alone with Dave Murphy at Mission Beach, before he did flips, but he was doing 4-7 spins moves, and though I was way below his ability, I felt that we worked together almost flawlessly, and we entered that zone where time stands still, and the enjoyment of the moment is all you sense."
