NCR All-Star Tournament Names All-Tournament Selections

Champions New England Red put three players on the all-tournament 15.

Twenty-four players have been named to the NCR All-Star all-tournament team.

The All Star National Shield Challenge, held on January 15-16 at the Houston Sabercats’ AVEVA Stadium, brought together eight regional All Star teams and five Rising Star teams. The event included over 330 players from 130 schools across the country.

After a close battle with the Pacific Coast Grizzlies, the New England Independents (Red) were crowned champions. Mike Weir, the flyhalf from Dartmouth, was named MVP for directing the New England pattern brilliantly.

“We’re really proud to recognize our All Tournament team. Every All Star player showed great effort, skill and teamwork and these talented student athletes stood out as the best of the best,” said Steve Hiatt, NCR Men’s Director.
