The man with the howitzer arm, Wes Hopkins, is the Baller of the Month for the month of October. He got clocked in at over 80 mph at Nationals in April and was named to the All-NCDA team. His talent and growth as a player has helped turned Kentucky into a National title threat. He’s one of the most feared players in the league, and is one of the best players in Kentucky history.
Q: If you could play any team, who would it be?
A: I have always enjoyed playing Kent State, WKU, and JMU
Q: Outside of your arm, what other strengths do you have that people should be aware of?
A: Aside from throwing, I am the best victim of team throws, I seem to have a natural ability to get thrown at when the other team has all the balls.
Q: What’s your favorite player to throw out?
A: The ones who either try to catch me, act unintimidated, or simply call me out and ask for it.
Q: Predictions for how you will do, and for how UK Dodgeball will do this season?
A: I predict more than one National Title coming to the Bluegrass this year!
