Tim Eubanks started playing in the street in front of his house with his neighborhood friends when one of them brought out a Wham O Frisbee with instructions inside. He realized right then that there was no greater sport than ultimate. While attending St. Mary’s College, he helped and captained the college’s first ultimate team. He has played in the open division with storied DC/Baltimore region based teams, Chesapeake, Anodyne, Medicine Men, and Electric Pig. Tim currently coaches the Queen Anne’s County HS team, and has coached for the semi-professional MLU DC Current, UMBC’s Div 1 men’s team, Booya, and the women’s club team, Backhanded. In early January 2019, after many conversations at the dinner table with his wife, Hon Yin, he submitted the first ever MD YCC bid. From there, he recruited coaches and the help of the CMUA governing body. It is his mission to help grow MD youth Ultimate.
Coach Cara is returning to Blackout this year for the team’s third season. Cara began playing ultimate informally in 2012 in her hometown of Atlanta, and joined the club scene in 2015. She played first with mixed club team Los Heros in Bloomington, IN, then Los Penguinos in the Baltimore area, and currently plays with Heavy Flow.
Cara loves the community spirit of ultimate and is looking forward to creating an inclusive environment for mixed youth players to grow as athletes and teammates.
Rob has been coaching for six years, in VA, WV, MD, and FL. He coached Glenelg HS to 2nd place in 2017 and Mt. Hebron to 4th place in 2018. Rob also ran youth ultimate from 2019-2022 in Tampa and all of Florida youth ultimate from 2020-2022. He has been playing ultimate for 18 years with various teams all over the country, but is more of a pick up warrior.
2019 MD Blackout Coaches, Joey Ricks and Keven Moldenhauer will continue to support and assist the team whenever possible.
The Battle of St. Michaels was a battle during the War of 1812. Legend has it that the British naval guns proved ineffective against the town because the townspeople had dimmed the lights in their homes and hung lanterns in trees beyond the town, causing the British gunners to overshoot the town and its defenses.
This event was coined as the very first Blackout.
