Seth Wiggins, the Seattle Rainmakers’ first signing, took a big fall back in the third week of the season in the Seattle Rainmakers first away game. We checked in with Wiggins to see where he was on the long road to recovery.

The loss of Wiggins was a big blow felt by the Seattle defensive line as they fell to the Dogfish 14-16 on that blustering early May day in San Francisco, and it sidelined him for the entire season.

“Rehab is ongoing,” he said. “Structurally, I’m great. I won’t have as much mobility in my thumb as I used to, but I’m gradually regaining strength and use with it.”

While Wiggins’s injury and his intense educational pursuits have kept him from participating in the club Ultimate scene, he is confident that he will be back in professional condition before long. In the meantime, he says, “Any free time is quickly taken up exploring a new side of the country, or new to me at least.”

Wiggins will be living on the east coast next year, so he will unfortunately will be laying his Rainmakers jersey to rest, but he is open to the idea of donning a new kit.

“Playing for another MLU team is certainly a possibility – DC would be the closest – but I’m not quite sure where I’ll be in the summer and I won’t until the spring.”

So while some moves around the league have been definite, Wiggins will essentially become MLU’s first free agent.
