GRR: All-Time Americans
Samu Manoa is one of the most influential American rugby players.
Maryann Sorensen embraced the role of a prop forward like few before or after.
Jone Naqica retired from playing international rugby as the highest-scoring USA player in international 7s.
While that record of 411 points scored has since been broken, it’s still evidence that Naqica was a hugely important player for the USA as its 7s program developed.
Vanesha McGee was an All American at Temple University and quickly through the USA U23s and onto the national team.
At Temple she led the Owls to a national DII championship, and her leadership and confidence was evident as she was able to make the jump to international rugby from the DII college game.
