Adam Cohen is a Cali boy who decided to take his talents to freezing cold upstate NY and the Metro East region. Cohen was an athlete growing up, playing baseball and getting his first taste of ultimate on the Bay Area Aftershock in 2017. Adam immediately made an impact as a rookie on Binghamton Big Bear, notably getting a layout Callahan in his first season. After being shut down completely for almost two years due to the pandemic and a foot injury in his first tournament back, Adam made a huge defensive impact in spring 2022 and was a consistently open cutter at any time the team needed him. Adam’s first club season was last summer where he played on the Berkeley Zyzzyva. There he learned to become a handler to fill the hole left by multiple graduating D-line handlers on Big Bear. That work paid off when Adam stepped up as captain of Binghamton in 2022-23 and became the primary D-line handler after only cutting in the past. Big Bear relied on Adam to lock down the other team’s best player while also leading the offensive charge on both D-line and crucial points. Thanks to his leadership both on and off the field, SUNY Binghamton made history this spring finishing third at regionals, the highest finish in school history. Cohen’s impact on Big Bear cannot be summed in words or video, and he was surely the backbone of Binghamton Men’s Club Ultimate’s most successful season of all time.
