All-Time American List: Jamie Burke

There is no doubt that Jamie Burke is one of the greatest Eagles, man or woman, in the history of the game.

Playing one of the toughest positions on the field, prop (although she's been known to don the #2 jersey as well), she has obliterated the USA Women's record for 15s caps. Her 51 test matches is 11 more than the next most. She played in three World Cups, mostly at tighthead, and continued through a ten-year career where she was at the top of the world game.

A very intelligent player and a smart coach and affable, friendly person off the field, Burke epitomized that dual personality of the game—a kind teammate and gracious opponent, and yet not nice to play against at all.
