Georgia's Aidan Downey was named the 2024 Callahan Award winner in the semifinals of Nationals on Sunday night. He is the first winner in the history of the Georgia Jojah program.

Downey's name has been known since his youth. He led Grady to win the 2018 High School National Invite and played with the Atlanta ATLiens, who were co-champions at the 2019 Youth Club Championships. His creative throws, explosive layouts, towering skies and infectious spirit contributed to Georgia's annual success at Nationals and their Spirit Award wins in 2021 and 2023. He was also a member of the Atlanta Chain Lightning team that reached the quarterfinals at the 2022 Club Championships and the 2023 US Mixed U24 team that won a gold medal in England.

Even from those early days, Downey's talent has helped to highlight his talent. He is a bold shooter and plays with tremendous joy, often wearing unique clothing that has become his trademark. Georgia's prominence in the men's league has benefited from his presence. In his four trips to Nationals with Jojah, he has scored 34 goals and 33 assists and has been selected to the Ultiworld All-Region each of the last three seasons.

Downey's Callahan video has more than 18,000 views and is the second most viewed male video of the 2024 Callahan season. Check it out below:
