Houston SaberCats Obtains Jason Camp

The Houston SaberCats obtained New England Free Jacks lock Javon Camp on a four-week loan with Zach Short going to the Free jacks for the same period. The 23-year-old lock is 6’6” and 265lbs. Jason played with the New England Independents this season and trained with the Free Jacks.

Javon’s hometown is Los Angeles, California. He attended Jesuit High School and then Bishop Mora Salesian High School where he was a varsity basketball player for the Mustangs, as well as rugby. He also played varsity football as an offensive tackle and was named to the First Team Angelas League his senior year.

He attended Bethune Cookman University from 2017-to 2021 and will graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice. While there he played NCAA Division 1 Football Championship Subdivision Program football for three years before resuming rugby as a coach for the Rhinos rugby program out of Sacramento, California.

Javon attended the USA Rugby Talent Identification California Camp in 2021 and his performance led to his selection as one of 27 promising young athletes within the High-Performance Pathways nine-week camp in Glendale, Colorado. This camp led to his selection for the USA Selects squad which traveled to Uruguay for the Americas Pacific Challenge.
