Jenny Burney

Jbo's decision to use her fifth year of college ultimate eligibility was music to the ears of Superfly veterans, but sounded more like a dirge to their college opponents. Through her first four years of Stanford Ultimate and her club experience as a captain of Skyline (formerly Heroine), Jenny has developed not only the ultimate skills, but also the love and knowledge of the game, of a true leader. Jenny's leadership is expressed in both her words - her game-time speeches fire up the team like no one else can - and her actions. She is one of the hardest working athletes any of us has ever known. From running the entire Stanford stadium in one go (trust us it's huge) to pumping iron at the gym to leading 'jumpies' the same day as a quad busting sprint practice, Jenny does what it takes to be one of the strongest, fastest, and toughest women in the sport. The heart (and skin) she leaves on the field after every game is a testament to her competitive drive and spirited play, as well as to her commitment to her teammates. She is one of the most versatile players on the field and can seamlessly step from handler to deep - from hucking to skying; from deep-deep to wing to push, from d-ing her mark to well, d-ing her mark. There's no better cutter to help a thrower pad her stats than Jenny - she lays out for EVERYTHING. And don't think she isn't credited with about half of our teams layout grabs. She has a certain way of getting you to launch (maybe it's the "LAUNCH!!!" call?). The respect she's won from her teammates is equally matched by the respect she's gained by her opponents - Jenny was the runner up in the 2004 Callahan Competition. Finally, Jenny has taught us all the important lesson that you can bring it on the field and still bring it at the partyas long as it's over by 10:00.
