Whenever Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown decides to call it career, he might have a future as a professional Ultimate player.
Ultimate is a sport played with a frisbee that sort of resembles a cross between football and soccer and it is apparently quickly growing in popularity. Brown recently took part in a game of Ultimate with campers at Camp Spirit of the Game and Tad Wissel of ultiworld.com has passed along video of the event and an interview with Brown.
According to Brown, he’s no stranger to the sport.
“Man, Ultimate is a part of my regimen,” Brown told Wissel. “I love after a long hard track workout or a sled push to get some cardio in and not only catching the football but going after the frisbee. It’s different, catching a frisbee… the frisbee can sail or go up and down so you’ve got to have your eyes and your coordination right, watching it all the way through the catch. It’s definitely a game I love to play and I continue to play in my off season workouts.”
