Eric began his ultimate foray playing pickup on off-days with the Nordic team at Hopkins High School.  After much coercing, he decided to start playing for the Hopkins team… in April… of his senior year.  After graduating with little knowledge of a forehand, he attended St. Olaf where he studied math and fell in love with the sport enough to quit skiing and play ultimate more seriously.  Beyond the St. Olaf Berzerkers he played for numerous mixed and open teams around the Twin Cities.  Eric joined the Thrusters as a handler in 2013 in time for the national championship season.  Outside of ultimate, after finishing up grad school at the University of Minnesota, he recently jumped ship to the warmer climates of Charlotte.
