Social Media Bio:
Last but certainly not least for our rookie bios we have a player that has been all over the world, playing frisbee – 10 Countries to be exact. She got her start in the infamous Radnor, PA while in HS. From there she played in three U20-something events, was a 2x captain for Michigan Flywheel, and played for various club teams in the midwest before finally making her way to Boston! Off the field she’s a jolly little fellow but when those friction gloves come it, Hank is all business. She’s calm cool and collected when the disc is in her hand and has plenty of tricks up her sleeve that make ya say W:oW, which is why she fits in perfectly on our O-line. Hank knows everyone – she has singlehandedly housed our team in about 5 different states. She’s the only Brute Squader to medal at 2018 worlds. Thank goodness we added another member to Jasian squad – we proudly present #38, Hannah “Hank” Henkin.
