GRR: St. Mary's
College teams as well as players and fans from around the country have voted to create the list of five finalists for the Rudy Scholz Award.
Given annually to the top men's college player in the country, the Rudy Scholz Award is sponsored by the Washington Athletic Club in Seattle, WA and has been presented each of the last three years.
Four of the top six men's college teams are in action live today.
Lindenwood (#6 ranked by FloRugby) is at Life (#2). It kicks off at 1pm ET and is live here (Signup required, but it's worth it).
Some college rugby observations for January.
Where are we on the D1A competition?
Dylan Audsley scored 25 points, Holden Yungert was MVP, the ground in Moraga, Calif. shook with the vibrations of the tackles between Life and Saint Mary's, and Kevin O'Connor was superb as the Gaels held of an excellent Life team 30-24 Saturday.
When the Saint Mary's Gaels came off the field Saturday after beating Arizona 43-7 in the DIA semis, they were about to receive a dressing down from Head Coach Tim O'Brien.
And far from their coach's ire being a let-down after a ky victory, the fireside chat was expected.
