All-American List: Colleen Fahey

A quick, mobile, and very fit prop for the perennial champs Florida State, Colleen Fahey was a bit of a different breed of front row forward.

Capped only the three times, but still part of the Rugby World Cup-winning side in 1991, Fahey was quick, mobile, and not especially big. In a time when the USA props were about the scrum and maul and then worried about the open field, Fahey was more like a second hooker out on the field.

She remained a key performer for Florida State and throughout her career and continues to be a champion athlete well past her rugby retirement.
