Wednesday Morning Man: Seamus Kelly!
Yeah, World Cup is still going on (USA is out, sadly) but I’m in a rugby mood today.
That mood would have everything to do with today’s Morning Man, Seamus Kelly!
He’s just 23 (looks older with the mustache in the bottom photo) and plays outside center for the United States national team.
Seamus is from Queens, New York, where he attended Xavier High School. At Xavier he was also a standout running back in football, earning the nickname “Famous Seamus.”
A number of universities were interested in recruiting Kelly to play football but he went on to play college rugby with the University of California under coach Jack Clark. Kelly won two national championships during his years at Cal.
