Clemson

clemsonIn 1967 four friends, Frank Morah, Jeremy Pike, Nick Scholar, and Jeff Tyers dedicated themselves to forming a rugby team at Clemson University. The team struggled through many years of hardships like most new teams, but over time, the team showed steady improvement. Through hard work and dedication Clemson Rugby soon became a major force in collegiate rugby. With strong performances throughout the 1990’s and consistent top 15 national finishes from 2005-2007, the team was ready to take a major step up. During Clemson Rugby‰’s 40th year, in 2007, the Clemson Rugby Foundation (CRF) was formed to organize and grow the support for rugby at Clemson University. Through tremendous support from the University and the Clemson Rugby Foundation, the rugby team has made great strides to establish itself as an elite program in the United States. Clemson competes in the Atlantic Coast Rugby League as well as the Penn Mutual Varsity Cup. Led by USA Rugby All-American Assistant Coach and 2015 Penn Mutual Varsity Cup National Coach of the year, Justin Hickey, the Tigers have posted a 28-4 conference record over the last five seasons. In the 2015 Penn Mutual Varsity Cup, the Tigers claimed a 26-22 upset victory over Arkansas State University, but were up-ended narrowly at the United States Naval Academy the following week by the score of 23-24. After their team‰’s loss to the Midshipmen, Tigers finished as Runners-Up at the ACRL 7‰’s Championship the following week, and therefore, qualify to the Penn Mutual Collegiate Rugby Championship in Philadelphia May 30-31.
