"I've been recruited by Philly (formerly Southpaw) to play ever since I came to a tryout my senior year of high school. They wanted me to be a practice player and eventually grow into the O line role I have with the team now," Mott said. "That's what ultimately gave them the edge over PoNY which was the other team I was considering joining this season."
Before the Rumble, the 5'8" hybrid was one of the top players on the AUDL's Philadelphia Phoenix. In club, he played with Garden State Ultimate, which is based out of Princeton, New Jersey (50 miles from Philadelphia). His high school, Pennsbury, is 25 miles outside of the city.
Mott has also played under Spinners head coach Darryl Stanley, back when he coached the Phoenix in 2015.
If you're a Rumble fan and beginning to put the pieces together, don't worry.
"The chances of me playing Spinners next year are very slim," Mott said. "Don't expect so see me in a Skippy jersey next year or anytime soon for that matter. I just have no interest in playing for Spinners."
"Personally I don't mesh well with the coaching staff."
None of Patrol's coaching staff are affiliated with the Spinners coaching tree. Head coach, Charlie Hoppes, and assistant, Mike Zargham, are both former coaches of the Phoenix. They were joined by the Rumble's coach, Anthony Nunez, this season who came onto Patrol's staff as another assistant. According to Mott, this had no relation to him joining the team.
In 2016 Mott led the team in scoring (31 points), was fourth in goals (13), second in assists (18), and led the team with a defensive turnover efficiency of 63.3 percent with him on the line. Currently he is a free agent for 2017 and will be highly sought after by the Rumble, Phoenix (AUDL), New York Empire (AUDL), and possibly Spinners in the off-season.
