Pat Shriwise is not a household name. Neither are the Madison Radicals nor the Toronto Rush.
When the two teams met Sunday afternoon in the American Ultimate Disk League Championship Game, fame did not belittle the competition. In the AUDL's second season, $15,000 was on the line between the two clubs. (Madison and Toronto, the Western and Eastern Conference Championships, respectively, received separate $5,000 payouts for winning their conferences.)
The Radicals' Shriwise, 25, made a million-dollar catch. Watch as he lays out, full extension to stab the disc for the score. The announcing is courtesy of Ultimate Experience Television, but it might as well be ESPN The Ocho.
Unfortunately, for Shriwise, his Radicals fell 16-14 (The Rush capped off an 18-0 season). According to madisonradicals.wordpress.com, Shriwisewas born in Overland Park, Kan., and played club ultimate frisbee at Kansas State University. As of February, he was a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison studying engineering physics.
