Woodrow Wilson High School Head Coach Dave Ohls hit a mannequin with a frisbee from 50 yards away to earn the $5000 grand prize during yesterday’s DC Breeze Pro Ultimate game at historic Gallaudet University! The winning throw was part of the DC Breeze #5kToss Challenge Series, in which a fan is randomly selected from the crowd at each Breeze home game this season for a chance to win a t-shirt, a fan pack, and a grand prize of $5000.
Ohls was the first one to come close this season, but he not only did that — he cashed in on the grand prize with a perfect 50 yard flick directly into the head of the mannequin.
In addition to the thrilling finish to the game itself as the Breeze won in sudden-death double OT, the timing or the winning individual really couldn’t have been any better. Ohls is the longtime coach of Woodrow Wilson High School and also coaches a DC area YCC team. Wilson won its 3rd consecutive DCSAA State Ultimate Championship this season, and almost Ohls’ entire team was in attendance to be honored on the field at halftime.
And it wasn’t only his own players watching the event. It was High School Ultimate night at the game last night where the Breeze gave out free tickets to well over 100 high school ultimate players and coaches to celebrate the end of the high school season. Most of those players and coaches already know Ohls well because he’s widely considered to be a primary leader and coordinator of high school ultimate throughout the DC area.
Suffice to say it was an extremely supportive crowd of 500+ who got to cheer and encourage Ohls to make that perfect 50-yard flick and become the first grand prize winner of the season in the Breeze #5kToss Challenge Series.
The next Breeze home game, and next chance at a $5000 prize, will take place Sunday, June 11, 2pm at Gallaudet University against the division-leading Toronto Rush. The Breeze trail Toronto by just 1/2 game.
