Top DIA-Level Backs of the Fall

Goff Rugby Report has released its list of top DIA-level backs from fall play.

This list includes teams that play in the DIA conferences, but also includes teams that play in the Varsity Cup. This latter group includes Navy and University of Notre Dame, which play independent schedules, and also Dartmouth, which plays in the Ivy League. While we ranked the rest of the Ivy League aong the top DIAA players, Dartmouth, we felt, basically operates at a different level, and so we list their top players here.

The list was compiled using all-conference lists when available, along with coach recommendations and our own observations.

Teams that did not play significant time in the fall, such as Life and Lindenwood, or teams that played mostly or exclusively 7s (much of the West Coast) are not included.
