Mathias Conners signed a letter of intent on May 16, 2017 to join the University of Memphis Rugby program. Mathias is a 2017 Storm All-Star and has been chosen to play for the Memphis Rugby High School All-Stars on June 9th.
So far, Mathias has the longest playing career of any Memphis recruit having played for the Storm program for the past 7 years. He has played most positions through his career, but he excels at hooker, flanker and scrum half.
A multi sport student athlete, Mathias has also competed in soccer, baseball and basketball while achieving an Academic Excellence Award scoring 31+ on his recent ACT. He participated in the Health Occupational Students of America club at Brighton High School and has been a long term member of the Holly Grove Cumberland Presbyterian Church.
“He is a scrappy kid and has a great feel for the game “said Coach Josh Gardner at the signing. “He has been a pleasure to coach.”
The Memphis Rugby team is excited about the committment that Mathias is making with Memphis. We look forward to having him on the team.
