A Team for Everyone in North Texas
While the Stars, Cowboys, Mavericks and Rangers make headlines across the nation when it comes to North Texas sports, favorite pastimes from across the globe are becoming more and more popular.
Rugby, which is similar to American football, has grown to encompass roughly 40 teams in North Texas, says Phil Camm, managing director of Griffins Rugby, an Allen based team.
The Griffins, along with other teams, work to leverage networking with charitable organizations, including the One2Fifteen Adam Peak Foundation, in association with the One to Fifteen Foundation from the U.K. This organization helps veterans play rugby at no cost, assisting in their reintegration into civilian life.
“What rugby does is allow access to a community of people. The thing we hear from these veterans is that it’s changed their life,” says Camm.
