The New England Free Jacks re-signed Quentin Newcomer for the 2020 season. The 23-year-old tighthead prop is 6’1″ and 250 lbs.
Quentin lives in Fairfax, Virginia and attended Oakton High School in Oakton, Virginia. He attended Virginia Commonwealth University from 2015-2018, majoring in Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness.
Quentin began playing rugby two years ago with Steamboat Springs Rugby Club. He played with them the last two seasons in the Rocky Mountain League. He also played for James River Rugby Club.
He previously played loosehead prop and his ability to play either side makes him an asset to the New England Free Jacks. Quentin played with Free Jacks in the Cara Cup in 2019 and following the season he went to New Zealand playing with Sumner Rugby Club in the Canterbury Premier Club Division.
The additional professional experience in New Zealand should help him be an important contributor for the Free jacks in 2020.
