There are a number of other alum from Saginaw Valley that deserves recognition and appreciation. Below are three guys that I had the pleasure to play dodgeball with for a number of years with the club. On the court they are amazing athletes. Off the court, they are great guys that I’m lucky to call my friends. -Lindsay Maynard [SVSU] Continue reading “Alumni Appreciation: L. Maynard on 3 SV Alumni”

In this edition of our Alumni Appreciation Month, SVSU Vice President Lindsay Maynard writes about Saginaw Valley’s founder.
Bryan Janick. SVSU #3, jersey retired. For those of you who know him, you know he’s the oldest little kid you’ve ever met. He’s like a 12 year old in a 37 year old’s body. Or maybe he’s somewhere in his twenties, I’m really not sure. You’re also likely to know of his immense knowledge of the game of dodgeball. And he can dodge a ball like none other. The man’s like a ninja when it comes to dodging. Continue reading “Alumni Appreciation: Bryan Janick”

Here’s an interview with Josh Raymer, otherwise known as Jazzy, about dodgeball, website, and podcast golden days. Continue reading “BOTM: 2013 January”
“Hey you! Get over here and come play dodgeball!
Those were the first words screamed to me, Leslie Ellison #21″, by Carl Veith, co-captain with his brother Matt Veith in 2008.
My first time at the Kent State Rec Center, I was a terrified freshmen. I still think back to that day and laugh. It’s true what people say: sometimes one moment can change your life completely. Continue reading “Kent State Dodgeball Memoir”

The following images were created by DePaul Dodgeball alum Kevin “Champ” Hill [DePaul-42-A], during the 2012 season. A talented designer, he also refined the main NCDA logo which these “Player Logos” are inspired by. This small series started after work on refining the main logo, and reflecting the Nationals 2010 shirt design. Continue reading “Alumni Appreciation: Champ’s Player Logos”

Recently I attended a men’s basketball game between DePaul and Northern Illinois, both of which also have dodgeball clubs. NIU may play a game or so sometime this season. Anyways, DePaul barely won this basketball game. I don’t think it’s any surprise as to how inept DePaul men’s basketball can be. Towson, I do feel your pain.
