An unflinching pillar of marble in the fluid, weaving game of 7s, Alison Price won games took names and smashed opponents throughout the early 2000s.
Price was the central forward in the Northeast 7s All-Star team that won the National 7s All-Star Championships in 2005, 2006, and 2007. She was a massive part of the Kansas City Jazz, Atlantis, New York, and then the USA.
Tam Breckenridge played eight times for the USA and was only the 18th player ever to be selected for the USA Women's 15s National Team.
Jay Hanson’s story is a classic one of the early days of the modern era of American rugby.
He found rugby where he could, and continued to perform at a high level whenever he did so. He played in high school in Maryland when that wasn’t really a thing. He attended TCU and found a club in Fort Worth to play for.
The Tropical 7s will return for 2021 after having to cancel last year because of the COVID pandemic.
Like pretty much every rugby event slated for any time after March 15, 2020 being called off, events and teams are slowly stepping back onto the field.
