2016 Rugby Colorado Higgins Scholars

A brace of Rugby Colorado products has been recognized as superlative student-athletes by the United States Rugby Foundation (USRF). Becca Jane Rosko and Ryan Maxfield are recipients of 2016 Higgins Scholars awards for the national scholarship from USRF, a non-profit whose core process is the promulgation and promotion of our game nationwide.                                             Becca Jane won the 2016 Rugby Colorado State Girls High School Championship with Summit Tigers, then claimed the starting flyhalf slot on the Dartmouth College XV and subsequently won the 2016 Ivy League Women’s Rugby title with Big Green this fall. Of the scholarship award, Ms. Rosko expresses: I am truly honored to be awarded with the Kevin Higgins scholarship,” and she continues, “I am grateful for the rugby community and its ability to assist the next generation with their passion for rugby as well as their educations. I will forever appreciate the opportunity to help continue my education and passion for rugby throughout my time at Dartmouth, as well as beyond.”   Ryan won Rugby Colorado State Boys High School Championship with Regis Jesuit as string-puller in the 10 spot last spring, before matriculating at Loyola University in the fall.  I feel honored to receive this award, and I think that winning a rugby scholarship speaks volumes to the way that the game of rugby is continuing to grow and expand, which really excites me.” Maxfield has moved one slot over and is covering the crucial inside center position for Loyola these days.                        United State Rugby Foundation was formed in 1963 and the organization exists solely on the support from the American rugby community. The Higgins Scholarship, a memorial to one of the greats in our game, is made available by USRF through donations from you and others like you; donations may be made by accessing the USRF link.
