Boston Whitecaps Re-Signs ESPN Backflipper Terry Roth

The Boston Whitecaps announced today that veteran Terry Roth has re-signed with the team for the 2016 season. Any fan of the Boston Whitecaps over the past 3 seasons has certainly witnessed Terry Roth’s goal celebrations – a scoring catch, followed by a perfectly executed backkflip. But who is the man behind the backflip, and how did it all begin?

Roth began playing ultimate in high school, but never competed until he joined the club team Jackalopes. He played on that team for five years – including the year in which they won the BUDA Summer League Championship – and also competed for the University of Massachusetts – Lowell before transferring to Framingham State University.

His professional ultimate career began in the American Ultimate Disc League, where he played for the Rhode Island Rampage in their inaugural season. He made an appearance in the fifth spot of SportsCenter’s Top 10 and made up for his self-proclaimed lack of experience with his explosive athleticism throughout the season.

The following year, Roth left the AUDL for Major League Ultimate, joining the Boston Whitecaps as the youngest player on the team. “I believe the Boston Whitecaps have a great chance of winning the championship this year,” he predicted. As the season drew to a close he was proven correct, and he chose to rejoin the MLU for a second season because he believes “it is a great organization.”
