Men’s Eagles Alec Gletzer, Ryan Matyas, and Mike Te’o will be in the Camp, as well as Alex Schwarz of Old Blue. NCAA Division I football star Psalm Wooching will also attend his first HP Camp with the national sevens program after returning to the sport of rugby.
After the camp a 12-man squad for the seventh and eighth rounds of the 2016-17 HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series – Hong Kong April 7-9 and HSBC Singapore Sevens April 15-16 – will be selected.
The USA is currently fifth in the Series standings after two consecutive Bronze medal final appearances.
The Eagles have been drawn into Pool D in Hong Kong with Argentina, Russia, and Scotland, with the tournament set to kick off Friday, April 8 (Thursday, April 7, in the United States), from Hong Kong Stadium. A final travel squad will be announced prior to the team’s travel to Asia.
