U23 replacements set

SEATTLE, WA – NexGen announced today that Justin Lim, Jesse Bolton and Ian Campbell will be replacing the absent Jimmy Mickle, Elliott Erickson, Eli Kerns and Tim Morrissy.

Mickle, Erickson, Kerns and Morrissy left the tour Sunday for the U23 training camp in Buffalo, NY.

Lim and Bolton are Seattle natives and started for Carleton College last year as freshmen. Lim finished the year as the North Central Region’s Freshman of the Year.

Campbell is a junior out of Eugene, OR and has been a staple of the University of Oregon’s Ego since his freshman year when he got the nod as 2nd team Freshman of the Year next to Oregon and NexGen teammate Dylan Freechild.

All three players can be watched live tonight at 7:00pm Pacific on NGN (www.ngnultimate.com) against Vancouver’s Furious George and Tuesday evening against Seattle’s Sockeye at 7:30pm Pacific.

Two more join the bus

With barely more than two weeks until NexGen’s first game in San Francisco it’s only appropriate that we have a complete full roster.

When we announced the 2013 roster in early May with an empty 15th spot, we too wondered if it was the right decision. Would we be hampering the team by not securing a good player early or would we find the right player to complement the roster in Madison?

It was worth the wait as we’ve added a talent we might not otherwise have selected in UC Davis’s Eli Kerns. We knew Kerns had potential and watching him lead Davis (10 goals, 22 assists) to a surprise quarterfinal appearance at the 2013 College Championships confirmed that he would be a good fit for the roster.

Kerns’ resume includes a USAU Club Championship, a 2010 U20 World Championship and a 2013 U23 selection. He plays club with the Bay Area’s Polar Bears.

The University of Colorado’s Tim Morrissy will be replacing Carleton’s Nick Stuart who has been mostly sidelined since the North Central regional tournament with a nagging hamstring injury.

Morrissy plays club ultimate with Denver’s Johnny Bravo and was teammates with Kerns on the 2010 U20 national team. He will be representing the US in Toronto this summer as a member of the 2013 U23 open team.

2013 NexGen Roster

Once again the NexGen roster is overflowing with talent and athleticism. Among the fourteen players already selected eight were U20 World Champions, ten have been named to all-region teams, eleven have attended the USAU College Championships at least once (three have won) and ten have attended the USAU Club Championships at least once (one has won).

The 2013 NexGen Roster*:

1 Jacob Janin
