I began playing rugby at UW-Whitewater for 3 years and was a member of the 2010 Midwest Champion team that proceeded to Nationals. (The club won Nationals the season after I graduated.) I played with the Green Bay Celtics in 2012 and have been involved in coaching middle/high school football since 2010. I began coaching with GBYR in 2018 because I enjoy working with young athletes as they learn life skills through the game of rugby. Pat coaches our Banshees(MS Girls).
