It’s been a while! Sorry for the break, but we’ll resume pumping out our rookie profiles now that *generic excuse*. If you have any questions you’d like us to ask the rookies, @ us on Twitter and we’ll be happy to oblige.

Hope you enjoy Smock’s creative as heck responses 😀

Serious Questions

1. Where are you from?

I am from Lexington MA.

2. How long have you been playing?

I have been playing for 4 years. Broke my leg my sophomore year…

3. What made you join Tribe/how do you like it so far?

I like to play frisbee, so joining Tribe felt natural. It’s been pretty good.

4. Did you think you were gonna make it?

Yes.

5. Personal goals for the year?

To play better defense, have stronger throws, better positioning to sky people. I have sent in my application for the USA U20 Team, and it would be an amazing experience to play on that team.

Fun Questions

1. Do you miss anything in particular from back home?

Growing up I played a lot of music, and I even went to music school for like 10 years. I played the saxophone and piano, but I didn’t bring any instruments here. All I have is a midi keyboard to make beats but I definitely miss playing music.

2. What’s the coolest thing you’ve ever done?

A good friend of mine’s uncle is best friends with Mark Cuban. So when the Mavericks came to play the Celtics, we would get free tickets and we would talk to Mark Cuban before the game. Because we were in entrepreneurship competitions in high school we would ask him about random business ideas we had.

3. Who’s the cutest rookie?

With no bias because he gave me a haircut, I’d have to say Amatheon. His hair is just too fresh.

4. Who’s the cutest vet?

Stephen Cook. We share the same name, he’s positive and hard-working.

5. Tell us about your most embarrassing moment

My most embarrassing moment is that I set off the fire alarm burning popcorn… and then had to admit to like a hundred people outside that it was me.

6. What is the difference between a duck?

What

7. How long do you think it would take a giraffe to throw up?

Giraffes have a 1.8meter neck. After some research, it seems that human vomit leaves the mouth at about 1m/s. So I guess it takes about 1.8s for vomit to leave a Giraffe’s neck.

However this isn’t that interesting. What is more interesting is how long does it take for giraffes vomit to hit the ground. The 1.8s is inaccurate because humans vomit pointing downwards, close to the ground, whereas giraffes probably dont throw up straight down and their heads are not close to the ground. Assuming that giraffes vomit is initially in the horizontal direction, we can use simple kinematics to see how long it takes for the giraffes vomit to hit the ground. Giraffes are about 4.3 meters tall. Because I assumed the vomit is approximately in the horizontal direction, there is no initial vertical velocity.

So Yf – Yo = Vo(t) + (½)gt^2
4.3 = 0(t) + (½)(9.8 m/s^2)(t^2)
t = 0.94s
So I guess it takes 0.94s for the vomit leaving a giraffe’s mouth to hit the ground. So very approximately from the vomit to travel through the body of the giraffe, leave, and hit the ground it takes 0.94 + 1.8s = 2.74s. [editor’s note: wtf nerd]

8. Favorite song?

So many songs. Probably Angels by Chance the Rapper

9. Favorite snack

Kettle Popcorn

10. Do you wipe standing or sitting/ are you a crumpler or a folder (of toilet paper)?

Standing. In order to keep my balance of mass centered when I go to wipe, you need to lean forward. So, it’s way easier standing. To demonstrate this, try leaning with your back to a wall, and try bending over. Your butt has to move backwards in order to balance out so that you don’t just fall. I don’t really know if I fold or crumple it…

Before actually coming to Georgia Tech, I thought that I would definitely make the team, but after the scrimmages and tryouts, I wasn’t sure. I thought that I would probably make it but was not certain.

My personal goals for this year are fairly simple: get better at using my body to defend and get better at making effective cuts. I think that with a little bit of practice I will definitely be able to achieve them.

Tryout Information!

Hey everyone!

This is what our schedule for the next few weeks will look like:

Pickup on SAC fields from 5-6:30 tomorrow. Might end even earlier due to wet Friday.

Next week the official open tryouts start – Monday (8/28) and Tuesday (8/29) 6-8 PM on the Burger Bowl (unless we can get space on the SAC field), then Thursday (8/31) 9-11 PM on SAC fields. We will be making the first cuts after this round.

After the first cuts, B team practice will commence with anyone who got cut/wants to play B team as well as the B team captains and coaches. They will discuss the practice times with you guys.

The following two weeks, we will have closed tryouts – Monday (9/4 and 9/11) 6-8 on the Burger Bowl, Wednesday (9/6 and 9/13) 6-8 PM on the SAC fields, and then Thursday (9/7 and 9/14) 9-11 PM on the SAC fields again.

After these two weeks, we will be having an in-house tournament that Saturday (9/16) (Time and location TBD). Final cuts will be made after that tournament.

Hopefully this answers any questions you guys had about the schedule! We’re looking forward to it. If there’s still any confusion, shoot us an email at gt.mens.ultimate@gmail.com
