David Stack joined the quidditch team because he had a passionate longing to fly. When he realized that the brooms used in quidditch are often simple PVC pipes with no magical powers, David decided to keep playing because the people were pretty cool. His favorite things about quidditch are the balance between the absurdity of the sport and its competitive nature and also the people that play it. Even though people play to win, at the end of the day, they realize they look like a bunch of idiots running around with a stick between their legs. Thus, instead of rivalries taking hold, teams just cuddle together. David also likes playing sports in general, so quidditch was a great new one to pick up. After declaring himself the Stack family knock-out champion and playing years of competitive bocce across upstate New York, David was looking for an equally interesting physical stimulate at Tufts; quidditch has provided that.
When he's not cuddling with the Tufflepuffs, David is on the Ultimate Frisbee team, is a very active member of the Intervarsity Christian Fellowship group, and works with STOMP. He is slightly confused as to why has declared an Environmental Engineering major since the things he is really passionate about – photoshopping his face onto pokemon, stunting, and following the WNBA – have nothing to do with that. David figures college doesn't really suit him, but he’ll likely keep paying tuition so he can keep playing with the Tufflepuffs.
For World Cup 7, David is most looking forward to seeing if the Lost Boys are truly as attractive as people say they are.
