Today, Husayn Carnegie has officially signed on to be a 2015 Los Angeles Aviator! His strong leadership qualities will be a force as the Aviators do battle in the deep Western Division this season. He is an amazing person off the field as he is on and fits what our organization represents. We want the bulk of our players to be local to the region and have our fans see and interact with our Aviators within their respective cities throughout the area. This builds a sense of a community that can feel vested in coming out and rooting for our local talent!
Husayn was born in Kingston, Jamaica and grew up in Lewiston, Maine. He captained the Men’s Ultimate squad at NYU and has played at the elite club level with District 5 in Connecticut and Santa Barbara Condors. He is a two year veteran of the AUDL, playing for both the New York Empire and Connecticut Constitution where he was named All-AUDL. Husayn currently resides in Irvine, CA where he is in his second year of a Poetry MFA degree at the University of California, Irvine. Husayn’s AUDL experience and Hi-Octane presence will be a hit in Los Angeles as he joins “The Crazy 8”. Congratulations Husayn, let’s fly in 2015!
