JOEY GIAMPINO

Inducted: 2013 - Player

Last Residence: Chicago, IL

Lived: 1962- Feb 26, 2011

 


Joey was one of the greatest receivers ever to play the game of Ultimate. His grace, power, determination and timing were breathtaking. Joey was an unstoppable force, who at 6’1’’ out-jumped and out-dove the taller opponents he faced. He helped lead Windy City to two national championships (1983, ‘86) and one world title (1984). Joey’s fiery showmanship was legendary; fellow competitors and spectators gathered on the sidelines in anticipation of spectacular display of athleticism. And he usually delivered. Joey finished his career in the early 90’s in Boston, playing for Big Ego Ultimate. Sadly, Joey passed away in 2011, leaving a rich legacy and countless memories of greatness.
