GRR: Arizona State
The idea that college rugby conferences should follow college sports conferences in other sports isn't new, nor should it be followed universally, but it does have merit in specific areas.
The USA Men’s Under 20 team may or may not take the field this year—everything is up in the air—but the players selected still deserve recognition in what is becoming an increasingly competitive team to make.
Arizona State standout No. 8 Carson Shoemaker isn’t taking the honor lightly.

Former center and now flanker Petaia scored two tries in a huge win over Oregon State.
Arizona State pulled off a huge victory over Utah to signal, perhaps, the beginning of its comeback to prominence in D1A.
At the center of that effort was Kyson Jester. The outside center scored three tries to lead the Sun Devils.
Arizona State is back. The college program opened up its PAC Rugby Conference season with a 32-27 defeat of Utah Saturday, signalling perhaps a return to the level the Sun Devils enjoyed before a program suspension suffered a couple of years ago.
