Valenzuela, a junior transfer from Modesto Junior College, is having
more than just a good football season at wide receiver for the Yeomen
Valenzuela put on an impressive display of ability last Saturday,
Sept. 29, against Wabash College, amassing 239 yards receiving and
three touchdowns on nine catches.
Though the Yeomen lost 56-26 to the Little Giants, Valenzuela stepped
up his game, putting on a display for the fans.
His performance gave him the Oberlin College record for receiving
yards in a game, breaking Rollie Schicks record of 220 yards
in a game. Schick set the previous record against Hiram College
Valenzuela needed just 11 yards to break the North Coast Athletic
Conference record of 250 yards in a game held by Wabashs Kurt

a game, Valenzuela was also named the Dan Hansen National Football

Through four games, Valenzuela is the NCAC leader in receptions,
averaging 10 per game, and in receiving yards per game with 181.2
Not only is Valenzuela having a good year in conference play, his
numbers are drawing national attention. He currently leads the NCAA

an exhausting search, I finally find sophomore Ultimate Frisbee
star Will Miller in the Bike Co-Op, fighting with a spoke on a bike.
Will, if I may have a few minutes of your time?
Sure, lets do this.
exactly is Ultimate Frisbee?
It is played with an Ulitmate Frisbee disc.
are the rules?
Well, two teams of seven square off on a football-like field and
the object of the game is to put a pass into the endzone.
is it like football? Do you get downs? What about turnovers?
You have positions like handlers and defense, you run plays; the
object is to score without dropping the disc.
if you drop it does the other team get it?
Yes, if you drop the disc the other team gets it, also if you are
playing defense and you knock the disc out of someones hands,
you get it.
are there referees in Ulitmate, or how is it regulated?
There are no referees so to speak. We have what is called Spirit
of the Game. Basically everyone is their own referee.
you guys get in fights a lot, or is it pretty tame?
It really depends on the team. Some teams get salty at times. Ive
never really seen a big fight.
theres never really any all out brawls?
Not that I know of.
would be cool though. So back to this Spirit bull. If
I were to just run up to you and accidentally hit you
in the face all you would do is call a foul on me? Because I know
if someone did that to me I wouldnt call a foul, I would just
hit him back.
Well I would call a foul on you and most likely hit you in your
most sports have balls in them. You guys play with a disc. So is
frisbee really a sport?
Well if you measure a sport by how many pads you wear then no, I
guess its not.
so what teams do you guys play in tournaments?
We play teams from all over really. Some big schools and some small.
this frisbee player last year who used his disc for everything.
I mean everything. He ate out of it, kept loose change in it, then
took it out and tossed it around. Personally, I think that is really
gross, not to mention unsanitary. Is that a common practice among
No, I dont think that is a common practice.
one eats out of them then?
No, I have never really seen anyone eat, so to say, out of them,
brings me to my next question. I heard a disc holds like three or
four beers. Can you drink a disc?
42 ounces exactly.
ounces... Jake just told me it was 52... Anyways.. Can you down
52 ounces of a fine malted beverage?
I have attempted the task, but I would just like to give a shout
out to Mike D.
the hell is Mike D? Im assuming you arent talking about
the Beastie Boy?
Mike D drank a disc in like 53 seconds.
seconds, thats damn impressive.
Goodman, a Bike Co-Op worker informs me that a big, black spider
has just crawled into my bookbag. After a few minutes of seaching
I find the invader but a quick protest of spider cruelty allowed
it to scamper off and live another three days... tops.
yeah, thats really impressive. Is that what Ultimate is about?
Getting drunk and chasing other people around a field with a disc?
Yeah, that pretty much sums it up.
there a lot of drinking every match or practice you go to?
Technically, no. Just at beer practice.
I would just like to say that Ultimate Frisbee does not condone
the comsumption of alcohol.
thats a bunch of bullshit.
Well, does not condone... whatever.
do you have a special frisbee? Is one more important than any other
Actually, the frisbees are pretty promiscuous.
discs full of beer?
