TJ Hardaway is a Panther in Europe

The Strongest Back medal is presented to TJ by Coaches Swatzyna and Stevens at the SIRC All Star game

Our own TJ (Willis) Hardaway has been selected to play this year for the USA Rugby Panthers on their European tour.  This is a great honor for the University of Memphis and the MidSouth rugby community.

The selection process took place over the 2017-2018 season. TJ had an impressive showing last year against Bermuda, Trinidad and Cayman Islands rugby teams during the RAN championships.    TJ was called up in August 2018 as a late addition due to player availability and is now headed to Europe to represent USA South!

Let’s get behind TJ financially and help him compete at this level.  He has a Go Fund Me page and is taking donations now.  Any money would be appreciated, along with well wishes and encouragement. Give the same way you vote… early and often! (Ha!)  Thanks friends.
