PHILADELPHIA, PA – A good tournament deserves more than just an MVP, so in reflecting on last weekend’s 2015 Penn Mutual CRC action, and in the spirit of the World Rugby Sevens tournament teams, here is my 2015 CRC Dream Team:
Calvin Johnson, Air Force
Jack McCauliffe, Navy
Niku Kruger, Kutztown
Conner Mooneyham, Life
Dante Weeks, Arizona
Jake Anderson, Cal (official MVP)
One goal was to go for a team that was balanced and had a mix of skills. Different players filled different roles for their teams over the course of the weekend, but the players above could actually play together and function as a unit.
For a squad of 12, I add in these players:
Jared Bosma, Michigan
Blane McIlroy, Life
Dakota Raymond, Navy
Robert Stortz, Kutztown
Andrew Battaglia, Cal
These are the players that made the most positive impact for their sides last weekend. This list is only from the main bracket of the CRC, but there was also a lot of talent on show in the NSCRO division.
And finally, hats off to Cal…
