2015 John Uppgren Highlights

Kid is so good. Tufts is so good. Top 25 D1 team good? Such a boring argument at this point. Enjoy Uppy going off.

Incredible moment at 3:28 as Uppgren scores and the crowd in the background rises to their feet to celebrate.

Biggest takeaway from the video…how hard he plays. Full tilt every moment.

Musical selection was a huge let down. Not that Jimi Hendrix “Voodoo Child” isn’t a phenomenal song. It’s just a huge shift in tone after such treats from the spring as

  • “Pray to God” by Calvin Harris & Haim
  • “The Night Out (A-Trak Remix)” – Martin Solveig
  • “Default” by Django Django

If you ranked all the D1, D2, and D3 schools together by most desirable college destination is Tufts…top 20…top 15…top 10?

Combine their success in D3, with their school location (assuming you can tolerate the horrific Boston accent), with their academic standing (tied for 27th with Wake Forrest, higher than Michigan and UNC), and how could top tier recruits say no?

How good of a coach is Mike Daly? A post for another time.
