I’ve had a fun and exciting journey but damn it would be nice if I had an agent who I could hit up and say, ‘I want a shot to play for the USA Eagles’. Well “former” Miami Dolphins football player Miles Craigwell, basically did that. Originally from Boston, Miles went to my neighboring high school, Weston High, and continued his education at Brown. After a college football career, he made an attempt for the PROS but the NFL just wasn’t happening. Then one day after seeing it on tv, he decided rugby would be worth a shot. Now he’s about to play in front of American fans in about 2 weeks in Las Vegas during the USA Sevens Rugby HSBC Sevens World Series.
But enough talking, check out these two videos with Miles Craigwell, and look out for the USA Sevens Rugby matches that are taking place in two weeks on February 12th and 13th. This will be a great chance for America to see what rugby is all about. Rugby is really just getting started here in America and I’m excited to be apart of the movement from the beginning!
