How I Got Into Rugby: Freshman year of high school, I wanted to try a contact sport in the spring instead of playing baseball so I gave rugby a shot. I got back into it junior year and was selected for a representative team that season. I’ve been addicted to the sport ever since.
My Favorite Thing About Rugby: Like Diego said, the camaraderie that the sport engenders on on a global level. I have friends from all corners of the world, and I know that I can make new friends no matter where I am as long as I can find a rugby pitch.
My Favorite Athlete: Sonny Bill Williams
Favorite Food: Bacon, bacon, bacon. Now I’m hungry
Favorite Movie: Boondock Saints
An Interesting Fact About Myself: Until I was about 16, I thought toll booth workers were allowed to keep the change they collected. Seemed like the greatest job on earth.
