GRR: Mike Friday
After winning the London 7s and gaining a berth in the 2016 Olympics a few weeks later, USA Men’s 7s Coach Mike Friday said that those accomplishments were nice, but they were just steps to bigger prizes.
The Men’s USA 7s team High Performance camp is done, and with another three months until the Sevens World Series season starts, Mike Friday has some time to think about how he constructs his team for the 2015-16 season.
Having coached the USA Men’s 7s team to a place in the 2016 Olympics, and to their first-ever World Series tournament victory in London, Head Coach Mike Friday can cross a couple off his list of goals - now there’s another list entry to worry about.
In this column by Goff Rugby Report Editor Alex Goff, the USA 7s team is examined through the blunt evaluation of its head coach.
So I asked Mike Friday what his thoughts were about his USA 7s team winning the Plate in South Africa, and his answer was, perhaps not surprising, but enlightening.
