#28 Sam Jennings
Nickname: Dark Lord
After realizing that basketball was a silly sport full of tall men and women running back and forth on a small wooden court chasing an over-sized bouncy ball, he decided to play ultimate Frisbee, a sport in which a bunch of men and women run back and forth on a big grass field chasing a flat piece of plastic. Clearly the better choice. Starting in his sophomore year he was an instant prodigy, skying foolish boys (both short and tall) and being generally athletic and defensively dominant all over the field. If you get a chance, ask to see his superman socks because they have flowing red capes, and flowing red capes are cool.
After taking a gap year in Israel (of which he has many hilarious stories that I only wish could be recorded here) Sam came to Pitt a changed man, ready to take on the college ultimate scene. He played for Pitt’s B team his freshman year and then made it onto the A team the following fall, and he is now entering his second year on the team as a junior. His athleticism and disc skills are just as impressive as ever, so look out for #28 as he continues to sky short and tall men and get layout d’s.
Off the field, Sam is respectfully referred to as the Darkest of Lords (“Dark Lord” for short), and is also known for putting it all out there during track workouts. He is also one of the most laid back players on the team. He radiates coolness, constantly has a smile on his face and always appreciates a good joke. He’s full of energy and life and is a great guy to hang around with. Or have an in-depth discussion about the meaning of life. Or tell a hilarious story about his life experiences. The list goes on.
