School - UGA 22'
High School - Lindale High School 2014-2018
I debated at Lindale High School doing policy for 3 years and sorta did LD my senior year. In high school I went for majority of pomo arguments and 'untopical' affs. My favorite arguments were AfroPessimism, death good, and psychoanalysis. My sophomore, junior and senior year Robinson 12 or Wilderson was practically in the 2nr/2ar of every round. To give you an idea here's my wiki from hs. I debated at UGA for a bit going for policy arguments, but my last competitive debate round was in early 2019.

TLDR - Do whatever you want. I'm here to judge you. If you don't read an aff and stand in silence for 8 minutes defend it. If you want to read a hardcore policy aff with 15 impacts defend it. I will vote for anything as long as it is justified and not harmful.
Disads: The more specific the better. A robust explanation of the link to the Aff and impact calculus supplemented with embedded turns case analysis makes these debates very enjoyable to judge. I'm susceptible to affs making fun of the link debate if the disad is just a generic arg.
Counterplans: The more specific the better.
Ks: I think these debates can be the most fun to judge and the worst to judge. In good k debates there needs to be in-depth explanation of the links and how they function with the aff whether that be links to the representation of the aff or post-fiat links. I also put a lot of emphasis on the framework debate. I think framework is the most strategic way for affirmatives to hedge back against ks in policy v k rounds and the most strategic way for ks to not let the affirmative weigh the aff.
- Jokes are always a good way to boost speaker points. Debate is a fun activity. You should at least pretend like you are having fun.
- Any more questions, ask me before the round.
