Josh Carlson - Past Legend Bio

Josh Carlson Bio

The human floor burn and ultimate underdog, Josh Carlson developed from a diminutive and unassuming third string Handler, to an all-time great who leads the sport in career LBRs, a combined hustle stat (loose balls + rebounds) that is largely correlated with winning SlamBall games. Along the way, Josh managed to nearly single-handedly make diving for loose balls highlight reel material. His relentless motor and an unwillingness to succumb to fatigue led him to play entire stretches of games at nothing less than a full sprint. Carlson’s leadership skills were unquestionable, inspiring often overmatched teams to upset victories both during season games and in the playoffs. Appearing in Series 1-5, Josh’s teams posted three finals appearances. Alongside his SlamBall career, Josh toured the world with his rock band as a world class drummer.
