The Purist: Dennis Busenitz
"Most of what he does is off the radar"

Posted: May 5, 2010

Dennis should already be a SOTY. I think he’s been passed over a couple times, but he’s too humble to think about it like that. He is definitely underrated, but maybe that’s because most of what he does is off the radar. Dennis is one of the greatest. —Chris Senn
