Old Glory DC Comments
“I’m incredibly excited to be coming back to Old Glory next season. Washington, DC is my home and it’s a dream come true to be playing professional rugby so close to my family and friends. I can’t wait to get back to playing in front of the fans and being with the team,” Iscaro remarked on being back with Old Glory in the District for the 2022 season.
“Jack made amazing growth last season,” said Old Glory Head Coach Andrew Douglas. “His scrummaging and play grew immensely over the year to the point where he was starting at the end of the season. As a local rugby product, it’s great to see these players being role models to younger players in the region. With the confidence Jack got in 2021, I’m sure he’s in line for a big season in 2022.”
