It is with great pleasure that I announce that three Tigers have achieved a cumulative GPA above 3.5. These players will be recognized at the Virtual Tiger Awards Banquet, by USA Rugby and by the Southeastern Collegiate Rugby Conference for their achievements.
The Tiger Honor Roll includes
Alec Sisco – 2020 graduate and double major in psychology and Criminal Justice, Alec was a key leader on an off the field. While thrilled with his successes, we will sorely miss his intellect and leadership.
Ethan Scott – Current club secretary and double major in English and Philosophy, Ethan has excelled on and off the pitch. He is tough at scrum half and plays 30 pounds over his weight. He is a rising senior, so we are looking good next year.
William (Liam) Scott – Junior majoring in Computer Science with a minor in Criminal Justice. He was a steady performer at flanker and we are glad we still have him with us.
Several Memphis Tigers earned Tiger Badge Awards this year. The Badge is given to players who have completed a full year of play with the Tigers. Though the 2020 spring season was cut short, the leadership of the Tigers decided to award the Badge to those who started the spring and who were faithful until the season was stopped by the University of Memphis and USA Rugby.
These Tigers will be provided a club badge (patch) to sew on their practice jersey or warm-ups. No player is allowed to have the Badge until completing a full year of play with the Tigers.
It is an honor to recognize the following players for their committment to rugby at the University of Memphis.
Tiger Rugby Badge Earners 2019-2020
These players are mainly in their freshmen or sophomore year which looks great for the Tigers going forward into the 2020-2021 season. We are all very excited about the future.
Congratulations to the Badge earners for this academic year.
