Old Glory DC added Michah Griffin for the 2022 Major League Rugby season. He was listed as a development player, but since he is contending for a spot on the wing, the 24-year-old, could see regular-season action.
Michah was a member of the Northern Mariana Island National Soccer Team and in 2016 played for the Blue Ayuys in the Asian Football Federation’s East Asia Cup.
The former Saipan International School student said he shifted to rugby when he went to college at Georgetown University. He also attended Central Catholic High School.
“I learned rugby from my classmates and teammates at the Georgetown University Rugby Club and quickly fell in love. I found the game so similar to soccer in so many ways. The constant stream of action and the beautiful intricacy of the tactics. Soccer prepared me so well to be successful in rugby and with my teammates’ help and my dedication to learning everything I could about the game I was able to succeed.”
Michah attended Georgetown University from 2015 to 2019, graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science. He is a software developer for a financial services company and plays rugby with the Washington Irish, as well as with Young Glory U23s in December 2021 against Connecticut U23s.
Michah has been training with Old Glory DC in 2022.
