Earlier this week the D.C. Current announced that they signed Seth Wiggins to their 2015 roster.
Wiggins is an MLU veteran having spent the 2013 season with the Seattle Rainmakers. Wiggins recorded eight points for the Rainmakers, tallying three goals and five assists, before breaking his thumb during the third game of the season.
Wiggins thumb is healed now, and following a year off from elite level ultimate along with a move to the East Coast, the Oregon native is ready to jump back into the fold.
“It’s a great group of guys. I played with a couple of them at Wildwood a few years ago,” said Wiggins. “I just know the guys are fun to be around, fun to hang out with and obviously they are a pretty good frisbee team as well. The coaching staff is really well-organized and really clicking well so far, so I’m just excited to learn from them all.”
The 31-year-old will bring a wealth of knowledge, both on and off the field, to the squad. Wiggins is not only a former national (Sockeye 2007) and world champion ultimate player, he is also a PhD candidate at West Virginia University studying natural resource economics.
“Seth is a talented downfield cutter, excellent defender and has very good break throws,” said Current Head Coach Keven Moldenhauer. “We tried very hard to get him to play last year and are very excited he was able to make the commitment this year. He brings a wealth of frisbee knowledge having played on Rhino, Sockeye and the Rainmakers.”
