Josh Nickerson started his ultimate career as an Air Squid with UC San Diego in 2006.  At 6’4”, he was a big reason the Squids qualified for College Nationals in 2009 and 2010.   Josh earned Southwest 1st Team All Region honors in 2010 and in 2011, he captained the Squids and received his Master’s degree.

At the club level, Josh’s ability to rule the skies and make huge plays continued, as he qualified for Club Nationals in 2010 with San Diego Streetgang.   The Growlers will primarily feature Josh on defense, with his willingness to sacrifice his body to make blocks, then sprint to the end zone for the score.   The AUDL is the perfect stage for Josh to showcase his talents and the San Diego Growlers look forward to seeing the “sky monster” in action again in 2015.

Josh currently lives in Cathedral City, CA and works as a civil engineer.
