Cleveland is the one of the 2020 captains for Gamecock Ultimate. He started playing his freshman year, and after showing talent as a defender with our B Team, he was brought up to the A team in the spring. Cleve continued to develop as a defender, being a key part of the D-Line for years, specifically as the Mid-Mid in a zone. His ability as the Mid-Mid is uncanny, as his reaction time and field awareness allow him to shut down cuts before they start. After playing a full possession of defense, Cleve’s stamina allows him to run circles around any defender who decides to guard him. Throughout his time with Gamecock Ultimate, Cleve has continued to grow, taking on key roles in clutch situations and closing out close games with big plays. For these reasons, we believe he should be considered for the Callahan Award.
