Raleigh Flyers Sign Jessi Jones

Raleigh Flyers, a new American Ultimate Disc League team in the 2015 season, announced the signing of a new player to their roster. An accomplished player as Team USA's 2013 U-23 national team and Team USA's 2015 Beach Worlds team, Jessi Jones joins the 27-man person roster on a one-game contract with plans to play on Sunday.

As of today, the tweet announcement of adding Jessi Jones has gained 50 retweets and 50 favorites. In comparison, Justin Allen - the team's first player signing announcement - had 13 retweets and 31 favorites.

Congratulations to Jessi Jones! Flyers have touted this roster addition as signing of the "First Female Professional Ultimate Disc Player."
