Seattle announced today that Eddie Feeley has signed a 3-year contract to play for the Rainmakers.

In signing the defensive standout, Seattle bolsters their roster and organization with another long-term player, the team’s third in two weeks.

Last season, Feeley’s defensive contributions and ability to convert defensive plays into points put him in the running for Rookie of the Year. He was second on the team with seven defensive plays and sixth on the team and first on the defensive line with 20 points on three goals and 17 assists.

“I had a great time playing last year and believe in the Rainmakers as an organization,” said Feeley. I want to be a part of building the Rainmakers into leaders of the Western Conference.”

Feeley first started playing ultimate in Seattle at Seattle University before attending graduate school at the University of Washington. He then played in the club circuit with Seattle Sockeye for three years and then various mixed teams.

His work as a middle school teacher has really cemented him in Seattle’s youth scene, evidenced by the large crowds supporting “Mr. Feeley” at Rainmakers home games.

Feeley will join Mark Burton and Khalif El-Salaam, who both signed multi-year deals this offseason, and will likely anchor Seattle’s defensive line in 2015.

“I’m excited for the upcoming year,” said Feeley. “We have some great players who are primed for a breakout season. Our goal is to win the West and we have the team to do it.”
