Kevin “Skippy Jammer” Givens

Note from Ultimate Rob: I am trying to get some more historical posts on frisbee from the past since it’s contributed to the current state of ultimate. Back in the 70’s and 80’s, the top frisbee players did all the disc sports – freestyle, ultimate, overalls. Today there are more specialists, specifically in ultimate, but I think it’s important to know the history of our great sport (frisbee that is) since it’s from this that all of the other disc sports have come to be. I hope you enjoy learning about one of the legends of frisbee, Skippy Jammer. I did an interview with him last year at the 2011 WFDF World Overall Flying Disc Championships which you can watch here.
