GLENDALE, CO. – Head Coach James Willocks and his staff have selected 30 student-athletes to continue to the next phase of the 2018 Men’s Collegiate All-American Selection Camp, where they’ll now compete for 1st or 2nd Team All-American honors.

After a day’s rest, camp will resume with seven additional collegiate players joining from Club 7s National Championships, as all athletes prepare for a full match against the Glendale Raptors on Friday, Aug. 17. The game is free to the public with kickoff set for 7 PM MT at Infinity Park.

Following two rigorous days of testing and training, along with two trial games, Coach Willocks and his staff conducted thorough evaluations to arrive at final selections from the original group of candidates.

“The staff and I are very thankful for the effort and attitude from all the players involved over the last few days,” says Head Coach Willocks. “Having to select only 30 from a very talented group was an incredibly difficult task. The standard of play over the course of the weekend bodes very well for the future of the collegiate game and USA Rugby.”

Overall, the camp has served as an invaluable opportunity for some of the nation’s top men’s student-athletes to showcase their talent in an effort to earn All-American honors — some of whom will likely continue their careers at the national team level.

The 2018 Men’s Collegiate All-American Selection Camp will conclude this Friday, Aug. 17 with the match against the Glendale Raptors, free to the public. Following the game, USA Rugby will announce 1st Team All-Americans in a special presentation featured on Facebook.com/USARugby. Details and a time will be confirmed closer to date.
