The Spinners are pleased to announce that Marcus Ranii-Dropcho has been awarded the Friction Gloves Catch of the Week for his play against the Washington D.C. Current in Week 8.
Ranii-Dropcho definitely earned his first MLU point. Jonah Wisch, who plays in college with Ranii-Dropcho at the University of Pittsburgh, leaves his throw into the end zone a little low, but Ranii-Dropcho makes a fantastic bid and rips the disc into his hands just before it hits the ground. Welcome to the pros, Marcus!
“The play developed off an unsuccessful in cut,” Ranii-Dropcho said. “I was looked off on my underneath and immediately turned my cut into a clear deep. When I saw the buck go up to Papa, I just put my head down and sprinted down the field, looking for the continuation. When I saw him pop it out to Jonah, I knew he would throw it, so I just did my best to alter my cut for Jonah’s position on the field. He threw it low and away, but I knew as soon as it went up, that I could make up the ground and make a play on it. That’s what teammates do, they bail out each other’s mistakes. Mistakes are going to happen and execution errors are inevitable. I was just in the right place at the right time to make a play for my team.”[iframe width=”560″ height=”315″ src=”//www.youtube.com/embed/BhwoZ1Wbn6s” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen></iframe]
