CRAA Names D1AA All Americans

College Rugby Association of America has named its D1AA All Americans, picking a 1st team squad of 23 and 15 honorable mentions.

Five players from champions University of San Diego make the 1st team, while Iowa State, Sam Houston State, and Western Washington all had significant representation.

"Sam Houston has had a great season and I’m blessed to have been a part of it as captain," said SHSU's Jaxon Stokley. "We continue to grow and make our name known nationally. Being an All-American is a true honor and just an extra bonus for all the hard work I’ve put in throughout the season and I couldn’t have done it without the coaching staff and other players around me. Rugby is my passion and I hope it eventually takes me to the pro scene in the MLR or across the pond."
