Arguably on of the most exciting plays in ultimate, the Callahan is one of those plays that defenders will be talking about for years, while haunting the dreams of their opponents. While the there have been less than 20 Callahans in MLU history, they are some of the most highlighted and remembered moments from our four years of action. Thanks to our friends at Ultiphotos, we’ve been able to look back and remember some of the our favorite Callahans in today’s Foto Friday:
