The Men of Bravo – Bart Watson, #6

Watson scopes the field

Terrific competitor. Extremely driven to succeed. Well-prepared and confident in his approach. Footwork is very clean and in rhythm — throws on balance with sound mechanics, a fluid delivery and smooth stroke. Very good timing, touch and anticipation – throws receivers open. Is patient working through his reads. Sells fakes hard and takes what the defense gives him. Poised in the face of the zone and often anticipates it coming. Is very mentally and physically tough. Is a student of the game with a very good understanding of Ultimate concepts. Plays like a coach on the field, knows the responsibilities of everyone on the field and can get teammates lined up correctly. Makes few mental errors. Consistently moves the disc and comes through in the clutch. Is given a lot of autonomy to make adjustments on the fly and understands how to exploit defenses. Meticulous in his preparation. Identifies with the game and really works at his craft. Smart, determined and focused. Showed gradual improvement every season. Highly respected, unselfish team leader. Rises to the occasion on big stages. Ultimate is extremely important to him but he enjoys nothing more than sitting on the patio with his wife Liz and a nice German Eisbock, watching his dog Scotch wreak havoc.  When not on the field or at home, you’ll find him Economizing and gracing Denver television screens with his perfectly groomed beard and chiseled face, or perhaps in the gym doing right handed curls in the mirror.
