Gavin May is a generational talent hailing from Austin, Texas. Standing at 6’5″ and 220 lbs, he is the best player in the deep space in the college division. But he is also so much more: a dominant break thrower, a relentless handler dominator, a chase-down layout D wizard, and most importantly, a talismanic leader of Cal Men’s Ultimate. Last year, he helped lead Cal to its highest finish at Nationals in decades (tied for fifth place). Gavin has several signature moments from that tournament, including skying for the game winning goal against Vermont to secure second in our pool. He hopes to continue building on this success in the 2023 postseason.
Gavin’s playing career started in high school, and now he scores goals for the AUDL’s Oakland Spiders. He has worked his way up the ranks and now plays offense as a versatile cutter. In the Spiders debut game this season, Gavin scored five goals and had one block to help win the home opener against the Seattle cascades. This is the first time in years the Spiders started a season with a win, and it is in large part due to the growth of Gavin May.
Gavin is deserving of the Callahan award because of his leadership on/off the field. He is a standout student at Cal and is continued for a graduate degree in Mechanical Engineering. He pushes our players to be the best version of themselves through his captaincy and friendship.
