What do you love about rugby?

That the game is very physical, you run hard and tackle harder. That said after the game both teams shake hands, break bread and converse as civilized beings. There is no other sport where you are enemies on the fields and immediate friends after the final whistle is blown. Rugby teaches you to win and loose with dignity and to treat your opposition with a great amount of respect.

 

What does the Kenya tour mean to you?

It will be the pinnacle of my rugby career. I don't think any of us ever dreamed of playing at this level since it is not offered in the US.

 

What about the tour do you most look forward to?

Watching my teammates develop as athletes and as leaders on and off the field. Traveling abroad opens your world view and I can't wait to see my teammates become more focused and well-rounded individuals.
