MAJOR TITLES: 9
Since first exploding onto the professional foosball circuit back in 1993 Louis Cartwright has made a trip to the winner's circle nine different times on the major pro tour, including this year's Open Doubles event at the worlds playing with Tom Yore. During that 1993 season, Louis came from nowhere to win open titles at the year's first three major events. He grabbed the Open Singles title at both the Tour Kickoff and U.S. Open, and earned doubles honors at the Masters event in Atlanta with Gus Trevino. Cartwright went on to earn five more titles in the next three years, including Masters and World Singles championships in 1996.
A gifted and versatile player with a will of iron, Louis has had success as both a forward and goalie, and has fought his way to six world finals in the past six years, including both singles and doubles at the 2003 Dallas event. His inspired performance in the classic 2001 world doubles final is still talked about as one of the best ever. Cartwright, playing with Trevor Park, hoisted his team onto his big shoulders and carried them to the brink of victory, before narrowly losing to Frederic Collignon and Todd Loffredo on the match's final ball.
