Life University (not affiliated with The School Of Hard Knocks) has a very unique commitment to Rugby and their Rugby Sevens team has advanced to the USA Rugby National Sevens Championship on August 14th in San Francisco, CA. Life University’s sports teams are called the Running Eagles. Maybe you don’t immediately associate “eagles” with “running” so let me point out that an adult eagle can outrun a cheetah for the first quarter-mile. I looked that up in The Ron Burgundy Book Of Ornithology so it must be true!
Rugby Sevens is a variant of rugby in which teams are made up of 7 players instead of the usual 15 and the matches are shorter. The Running Eagles went 5-1 at the South Sevens Qualifier Tournament, with the one loss being to the Atlanta Old White 12-5. Life University had beaten that same team the previous weekend in the Hotlanta Sevens Tournament.
For the shocking reason why all the members of the Running Eagles Rugby Sevens team have decided they will name a child after me click here: http://www.liferunningeagles.com/
