Morris’ own John Zeich was named one of seven props on Rugby United New York’s newly formed U23 Academy squad.
Coached by Phil Terrigno, the RUNY U23s program is a pathway to develop top local players for the future of the Major League Rugby side. This year RUNY finished 4th out of 9 teams in the MLR with an 11-5-0 overall record.
High-caliber matches, like one against the Men’s Collegiate All-Americans on June 29, 2019 at Iona College, will provide great opportunities for John and his fellow athletes to improve.
John is a rising senior at Lenape Valley Regional High School and current standout for the Morris High School Boys team. He recently competed for the Rugby New Jersey Varsity Boys All Stars and was named All State loosehead prop in the D1 Club division.
This summer, John is also working as a Youth Flag rugby referee.
Congratulations to John and all the other young Roosters! #unitetheempire
