Welcome to the new GoffRugbyReport.
GRR is run by Alex Goff, who has been at the forefront of reporting on the American rugby scene for almost 20 years. This new venture will concentrate on the younger side of rugby in the USA, where we're enjoying significant growth.
We're reporting on High School Rugby, College Rugby, and the select sides that represent those areas. We will still talk about the Eagles, with a look in-depth at the players and where they got their start, and also how those national teams are performing. We will also be covering Youth Rugby much more in-depth, with news about tournaments as well as coaching and advice pieces.
In short, we want to talk about you, the vast majority of American rugby players. You are students, parents, coaches, and volunteers, and this is your forum.
Alex Goff has been at the forefront of internet reporting on rugby in the USA for almost 20 years. He has been the editor of a major news outlet on the game (several different names) since 2001, and was the first journalist to create rankings for college rugby programs, and then did the same for high schools. Alex has also been a player, coach, referee, and rugby administrator.
Born in England of American parents, Alex Goff first started watching and playing rugby as a three-year-old on the sidelines as his older brothers played. He eventually played for his school in England, Haberdashers' Aske's School, Elstree, and represented the school through the U16 level (whereupon his family moved back to the USA). Goff played rugby for the University of Rochester, and also helped found the Budd Bay Rugby Club in Olympia, Wash., scoring the club's first try in 1998 (that was the only try Goff ever scored for Budd Bay).
