Minnesota Pro Master Dave Gummeson has been a staple on the pro tour for nearly 25 years. His calm yet intense demeanor, unstoppable 5-row, and solid all around game have helped him win eight open titles on the major pro tour, including the world singles title in 1995. "Gummy" was also crowned Masters Singles champion in 1993, and has been victorious five different times at the National Championships, including 2003 and 2004 when Dave and regular partner Tracy McMillin became the first team to win the title in two consecutive years. Gummeson seems to have no weakness on the foosball table and his highly-efficient 5-row is renowned as one of the best ever. A former winner of the tour's sportsmanship award, Dave is also recognized as one of table soccer's true gentleman. However, in the case of this classy veteran forward from America's upper midwest, nice guys definitely do not finish last.
