The National Small College Rugby Organization has named 25 student-athletes as Men’s NSCRO All-Americans, and 25 Rising Stars for the 2019-2020 season.

NSCRO has over 6,500 active men's collegiate players. Players were primarily considered based on club nominations submitted to NSCRO and reports from NSCRO scouts at our Fall playoffs.

This year’s All-Americans include seven 2019 All-Americans along with five 2019 Rising Stars rising to full All-American status plus thirteen new selections. The Rising Stars saw four players from 2019 receiving this honor again plus 21 new selections.

NSCRO All-Americans recipients have been determined by our selection committee to be the preeminent collegiate players within NSCRO. These 25 All Americans have demonstrated their skills, commitment and physical dominance that have made them stand out among their peers.

Each All-American selected player will be sent an NSCRO All-American T-shirt and a gold medal in recognition of this honor, while the Rising Stars will be sent a Rising Star t-shirt and a silver medal.
