Four Rugby Standouts to Attend All-American Selection Camp

August 10, 2018

08/08/2018

JONESBORO – Four rugby standouts will represent Arkansas State University at the Men’s Collegiate All-American (MCAA) Selection Camp, Aug. 9-17, in Glendale, Colo. The quartet is among 83 collegiate players selected by USA Rugby.

The players are hooker Patrick Meagher of Brisbane, Australia; flanker Pedro Alvarez of Houston; flanker Tabo Maree of Amersfoort, South Africa; and center Zach Young of Gold Coast, Australia.

“I’m very excited for our young men to go out and represent our club to the best of their abilities,” said Head Coach Blake White. “These guys are top quality players, but more importantly, top quality young men who will represent us with great pride.”

The camp is held at Infinity Park, the home of the 2018 College 7s National Championships. It will be split into two halves, with a mixture of training and trial games occurring in the first four days. Following that portion of the camp, the player pool will be reduced to 30 athletes who will remain to work with the men’s collegiate All-American staff.

The camp will conclude with a match against the Glendale Raptors on Friday, Aug. 17. USA Rugby will announce the first, second and third team All-Americans following the match.

“Our coaching staff is thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the top collegiate players in the country,” said James Willocks, head coach of the men’s collegiate All-Americans. “It is always a challenge to identify the top players with the college game being so expansive. We believe that we have selected a wide squad of players available, with representation across most conferences, divisions and programs throughout the country.”

A total of 60 players will represent D1A programs with the largest number of 24 players coming from the Mid South Conference of which A-State is a member.
