NEW YORK, NYJohn F. Kelly has been a fixture in the USA Rugby landscape for a while now. Coaching at NYC’s Xavier High School and following his son Seamus Kelly’s career from Xavier H.S., Cal University, NYAC & the USA Rugby Eagles kept him busy – often helping others.

Now John and his family need our help.

Rugby’s JFK is battling ALS. To that end, Peter Forsman of the NY Rugby Business Network and NYAC, is in a SWIM, BIKE & RUN in the MightyMan Montauk Half Triathlon on October 1, 2017 in Montauk NY. Please watch the video (or listen to the podcast), share with your friends and say a prayer for one of the good ones, John F. Kelly. And if you can, please make a donation.

Every little bit helps.


Thanks for watching. Please do what you can.

    Coach Kelly is, and has been, an invaluable mentor to many young athletes at Xavier High School. His sturdy leadership as a coach, and especially now, in the face of such physical adversity, sets an example for those kids as they become young men. We’re forever grateful. Thanks, Coach. Go Knights!

    • Well said. We’ve had the pleasure of being around him. Great guy.

      Thanks Frank! John and the Kelly family have been an inspiration and friend to so many in the rugby community. Humbled to do what I can to help raise awareness for his charity ALS One in his name and others who are suffering from this awful disease. Go Knights!
