2019 Rugby Scholz Award Nominees Are Out

The nominees for the Rudy Scholz Award have been released.

The award is named after former Santa Clara rugby star and two-time Olympic gold medalist Rudy Scholz, and since 2016 has been given annually to the best men's college rugby player in the country.

Sponsored by the Washington Athletic Club in Seattle, WA, the Scholz Award is selected each spring and officially presented during a gala event in June. This year the event, once again held at the Washington Athletic Club in Seattle, will be held June 8.

The nominees were selected by a panel of college coaches and administrators, overseen by FloRugby/GRR Editor Alex Goff. One nominee was voted on by the fans, and the fans will have a heavy hand in deciding the finalists.
