Greenwich native paid to play Ultimate Frisbee

GREENWICH - A college senior from Greenwich just finished up what he calls the 'ultimate' summer job.

Kamil Skwarek was paid between $20 and $30 a game to play Ultimate Frisbee all summer long.

Skwarek competed on the Connecticut Constitution in the American Ultimate Disk League, known as the first ever professional Ultimate Frisbee League. The Greenwich native is one of only 200 people in the country skilled enough to play the sport professionally.

Last weekend, the Connecticut Constitution lost the championship game to the Philadelphia Spinners.
