Men's Ultimate Frisbee

Harris Cannon, a 2020 graduate, was recently given the Donovan Award. The award is given to the top men's division 3 ultimate frisbee player. Harris has played a crucial role in the success of the University of Richmond SpiderMonkeys. As a freshman, Harris was part of the team that won the Division 3 National Championship, and was named the runner-up for Rookie of the Year. Harris would continue to be a mentor both on and off the field.

His teammates submitted the following for the Donovan Award: “Off the field, Harris is a mentor to younger players. Rookies will look to him for advice on defense, after practice wondering how to change their positioning to make the big plays he does. Instead of saying ‘just be more athletic,’ he gives measurable goals that players can work on, and follows up with them in the subsequent weeks to check on their progress.” Harris also served as a leader of the Sport Club program as an officer on the Executive Council, first as the Treasurer in 2018-19, and as the Vice President this year.
