Bill Hodges was one of the greatest Guts players when the sport was at its peak. His fierce competitive spirit and rock solid skills helped make the Library Bar one of the most dominant teams in history. Hodges’ teams won the IFT in 1974, the US Nationals in 1977, and won both the Canadian Open and the U of M Indoor Frisbee Festival in 1974 and 1975. Bill was an electrifying crowd favorite, making incredible straight-on catches with the game on the line, and then punishing his opponents with his hard, breaking thumber. Billy Hodges was the epitome of hard-fought Copper Country Guts.
Inducted at the 50th International Frisbee Tournament in 2007
