GRR: Florida DIAA
With the rebound from the COVID pandemic still far from a sure thing, rugby organizations around the country are trying to figure out how to avoid losing momentum and to keep players playing.
A plan is coming together in Florida that could offer collegiate players a way to keep playing while keeping their eligibility.
Despite the early end to the rugby season this spring, we got to see enough players to give a nod to some of the standouts in DIAA.
Florida Atlantis finished the 2018-19 Florida DIAA season with a 4-6 record.
This year, before the college rugby season was halted, FAU was at 6-0.
If things go according to plan, we'll have a DIAA playoff this spring; here's where we stand around the country.
Florida Atlantic moved to 6-0 in the Florida DIAA Conference with a 27-12 defeat of Florida International. Spencer Gray’s goalkicking was a key part of FAU’s charge, as he picked them up after a slow start with two key penalty goals in the second half, and 12 points in total.
