The Seattle Rainmakers had a great season in 2016. Finishing with their second best record in franchise history, Seattle made the playoffs for the third time in four seasons. While the 2016 Rainmakers returned a solid core from their 2015 Western Conference Championship roster, the addition of several talented rookies bolstered the team in 2016.
Two of those rookies combined for one of the more impressive plays from the 2016 Rainmakers season during their Week 4 matchup with the Vancouver Nighthawks. About halfway through the 2nd quarter, the Rainmakers D-line forced a turn deep in their own territory, working the disc up to rookie Spencer Sheridan about 10-yards short of the mid-field line.Streaming Beauty and the Beast (2017)
Sheridan, looking deep, saw that fellow rookie Luke Jesperson had found some space between himself and his defender and was streaking towards the end zone. Going for the goal, Sheridan uncorked a beautiful inside-out flick huck.
Jesperson, reading the throw perfectly, found himself in just the right spot across the goal line, with Sheridan’s throw slicing perfectly into his teammates hands.
