Men College All Americans Named to Face Canadians

GLENDALE, CO. - Men’s Collegiate All-American XVs Head Coach James Willocks has named his match day roster to face All-Canadian University XVs in the conclusion for Selection Camp 2019 this Saturday, KO 3 PM MT, in Glendale, CO. 

The match will serve as a curtain raiser for a senior test match between the United States and Canada. Both games are broadcast LIVE on NBC Sports Gold with tickets available at usarug.by/pnc2019

Following  a week of training in altitude, which included a joint-session with the senior Men’s Eagles, the All-Americans are prepared for the first collegiate-level matchup between the USA and Canada. 

All 26 players in camp have place on the match-day roster. First, Second and Third team All-American honors will be announced following the game.

“The staff  have all been very impressed with the attitude and effort from the squad throughout a challenging week,” said Coach Willocks. “There is a real excitement in the camp for the challenge ahead and opportunity to represent this storied program on the national stage.”

USA Rugby’s Men’s Collegiate All-American program is an honor for up-and-coming athletes who seek to one day become senior national team players. For the All-Americans to assemble and compete, monetary support from the community is critical to reduce or even completely cover costs. 

Coach Willocks, staff and all 26 players in assembly extend their gratitude to those who donated to this assembly and future supporters of the program. To give a gift to the Men’s Collegiate All-Americans, contact Chris Reed at creed@usarugby.org
