San Francisco announced today that defensive handler James Yeager has re-signed with the Dogfish for the 2015 season.

Yeager rejoins the Dogfish after a successful rookie season where he scored 16 points on one goal and 15 assists.

“I am really looking forward to the Dogfish season,” said Yeager. “Despite some tough losses, last year was such great experience. I can’t wait to turn the table on our conference adversaries and get some payback.”

A native of Louisville, Ky. and graduate of University of California, Santa Cruz, Yeager earned a spot on the team after impressing coaches at the Dogfish tryouts.

He proved his worth by racking up 15 assists on the defensive line, second on the team only to offensive handler Evan Boucher.

“Yeager is a great facilitator and makes everyone else better when he is on the field,” said Head Coach Justin Safdie.

In San Francisco’s third season, Yeager looks to improve on his rookie year with increased offensive production from the defensive line. He also looks forward to keeping the young Dogfish fans entertained.

“I really enjoyed having a chance to inspire the next generation of ultimate players,” said Yeager. “It was my favorite part of the whole experience, whether we were playing at home or away, the passion and excitement of the kids in the stands motivated me to bring my all on the field. I can’t wait to have an opportunity to do it again.”
