2006 - 2010: I started playing rugby with a club called Fort Hunt Rugby. My dad founded Fort Hunt in 2006 when I was seven. This club became home to the Fort Hunt Warriors High School team and the Fort Hunt Gators High School team.
2009 - 2011: In 2009 I played for the Alexandria Spartans, and continued throughout my middle school years. This was my first time playing competitive rugby.
2011 - 2016: Throughout all of high school I played for the Fort Hunt Warriors. I was fortunate to be on the roster for the state championship team in 2014, play in most varsity games the following year before losing in the state final of 2015. In 2016, I was very fortunate to be elected captain my senior year, helping the warriors to a state championship and a number four national ranking at the end of the season. The Fort Hunt Warriors remain the most successful high school club in the state of Virginia.
Fall 2015: During the fall semester of my senior year of high school, I played for Presentation Brothers College, in Cork Ireland. Playing at PBC opened my eyes to the art that rugby has to offer. Playing in Ireland showed me the expansive side of the game and the variations in how to play rugby. I was fortunate enough to play with many outstanding young players who have gone on to do great things in Irish rugby.
Fall 2016 - Spring 2017: After my high school graduation, I attended the University of Mary Washington. Playing at UMW was my introduction to men's rugby. UMW also opened up many doors for me to attend camps and later make select side teams.
Summer 2017: In the summer of 2017 I was very fortunate to represent the U.S.A. for the U.S.A. South Panthers in the Rugby America's North U-19 competition. The U.S.A. South Panthers went on to win the tournament by a score margin of 119-9.
Fall 2017- Spring 2018: In the fall of 2017, I moved to Glendale Colorado to play for the first-ever American Rugby Academy, the Glendale Raptors Academy. While at the academy, I was very fortunate to be elected captain of the academy by both my peers and coaches.
June 2018: in June of 2018 I was selected for the U-20 All American team to play against Canada in a two-match series. AS part of the U-20 team, I met many fantastic young athletes who taught me a lot about how to elevate my game.
2018 - June 2020: After my All-American tour I sustained a back injury that kept me out of play for roughly three years. It was a very rough time, not being able to play the sport I love, but during that time I started my new rugby podcast, as a way to stay involved in the game I love. I had a back procedure done in June of 2020, and I have felt brand new ever since.
Fall 2020 - March 2021: After my procedure, I was able to train and lift again. As a student at the University of Colorado Boulder, I began training with the rugby team at CU. While I never played for CU, I was very fortunate for the team there and I thank them for helping me grow on and off the field.
March 2021 - June 2021: In March of 2021, I signed my first professional contract, at the age of 22. I began playing for the Colorado XO program in March and finished the season in June. This was my first time in a full-time rugby environment. The Colorado XO's pushed my physical ability and forced me to step up my physicality while going again, elite athletes.
June 2021 - August 2021: After my season with the XO's, I signed with Rugby United New York. This was my first contract with Major League Rugby, and I am very thankful for New York. While there, I made my MLR debut against the New England Freejacks and played against the Houston Sabercats. My time with New York pushed me to a whole new level of rugby, one that I am excited to keep pursuing.
August 2021: Directly after my season with New York, I represented the Virginia Cardinals in the Can-Am tournament, located in upstate New York, at Lake Placid. Playing with the Cardinals was an incredible experience, as it allowed me to play with many young players from Virginia, that I have known throughout my youth.
August 2021 - Present: After my time with New York, I signed with the American Raptors, a continuation of the Colorado XO's. Many of the Colorado XO's played in the MLR after our season ended in June of 2021. which has truly elevated the team. I am very excited about my future here in Glendale.
