The 2015 season was a new peak for the Seattle Rainmakers franchise, reaching the MLU Championship for the first time. The Rainmakers thrived on their reputation as underdogs all season, earning Play of the Week honors from the league several times throughout the campaign. Take a look at all of the Rainmakers Plays of the Week from the 2015 Season:
Week 1 Innova Pulsar Throw of the Week
Henry Phan | #21
Look at the replay and you’ll see Phan throw this masterful outside-in forehand and then whip his hand backwards as if he’s a matador ripping away the red cape.

Week 3 US Coachways Offensive Play of the Week

Week 7 Defensive Play of the Week
Clay Dewey-Valentine | #31
In the third Callahan of the MLU season, Dewey-Valentine tips the disc into the end zone and catches it for a goal and the next pull. The full team celebration may have be more entertaining than the play itself.

While Mark Burton and Khalif El-Salaam may be the faces of the Rainmakers, these highlights show the impact that some of the less heralded players made on the way to the Championship!
