Men’s Small College All-Americans and Rising Stars Named

We are pleased to release our selections of 25 student-athletes named as Small College Men’s All-Americans and 25 Rising Stars for the 2019-20 season.

National Collegiate Rugby has over 6,500 active men’s collegiate players. Players were primarily considered based on club nominations submitted to NCR and reports from NCR scouts at our Fall playoffs.

This year’s All-Americans include seven 2019 All-Americans along with five 2019 Rising Stars rising to full All-American status plus thirteen new selections. The Rising Stars saw four players from 2019 receiving this honor again plus 21 new selections.

Small College All-Americans recipients have been determined by our selection committee to be the preeminent collegiate players within our organization. These 25 All Americans have demonstrated their skills, commitment and physical dominance that have made them stand out among their peers.

Each All-American selected player will be sent a All-American t-shirt and a gold medal in recognition of this honor, while the Rising Stars will be sent a Rising Star t-shirt and a silver medal.

Congratulations to our 2019-2020 Small College All Americans class:
