The USA Rugby 2012 Men’s Collegiate All-America Sevens teams have been announced. Thirty-six players were selected as First Team, Second Team and Honorable Mention All-Americans by the Sevens staff, led by Tony Pacheco, head coach of the Men’s Collegiate All-American Sevens.
The All-Americans are recognized for their excellent on field performance, a result of their tireless efforts balancing the responsibilities of being an elite college athlete and the academic demands of being a student.
The athletes were evaluated predominantly during their performances at the National Championship, USA Sevens Las Vegas Invitational and the USA Sevens Collegiate Rugby Championship. Pacheco said he enjoys creative players who make their teammates better.
USA Rugby would like to congratulate the following All-Americans for their dedication to the sport and for an excellent collegiate season that earned them recognition in college rugby.
