John Stubbs '13 was named the 2017 Callahan award winner. The Callahan Award is an annual award given to the best male and female college ultimate players in the country. In addition to honoring extraordinary physical talent and skills, the Callahan Award also honors sportsmanship and leadership. The winners are selected through online balloting by other college ultimate players.
As Michael Baccarini, Paideia varsity boys' ultimate coach, has noted. "It's awesome when you consider out of [thousands of] registered college players" so many "winners of this award are from one tiny school."
Previous Callahan winners are Pauline Lauterbach '98, Miranda Roth '00, Leila Tunnell '06, and George Stubbs '07 and Paula Seville '08.
