For those of you who might not know, the Callahan is an award given to a player in the college Open division and a player in the college Women's division based on votes from the community. The Callahan Award winner is not just a bad-ass-highlight-reel-generating player, but more importantly, someone who is dedicated to ultimate, shows leadership ability, and demonstrates the highest level of sportsmanship. It's like the Heisman Trophy for Ultimate.
For some more info on the nominees, here's a compilation of the videos that we've found for the nominees for women's college teams. It's a cream of the crop bunch as usual!
