I was honored to be the recipient of Penn Mutual’s Life of Significance award for this year. I had no idea I had even been nominated by my coach until I got the phone call while at rugby practice. I’ve since read the amazing bios of the other nominees, and I’m humbled to have even been nominated.

After this year’s Penn Mutual Collegiate Rugby Championship, we held an invitation-only Leadership Summit for a select group of rugby players. Not only does Penn Mutual love rugby, we also want to help build the next generation of leaders.

I have been thinking a lot recently about my journey in rugby and the overall rise of women’s rugby in the United States. As I reflect upon the last several years, I realize that we women have accomplished a lot. For the first time ever, women’s rugby was in the Olympics, and women’s rugby is now tabbed an NCAA Emerging Varsity Sport. Most importantly, however, thousands of girls are picking up a rugby ball.

The growth of collegiate rugby and the return to the Olympics have given us great visibility, but I believe it is the growth of youth rugby in the U.S. that we must focus on, as this will increase the level of play at all levels.

The Rugby Business Network (RBN) has come a long way in the six years since I started it here in the U.K., and I continue to be amazed by its growth. Recently, we have enjoyed a rapid expansion across the pond, thanks in no small part to the work of our key U.S. partner, Penn Mutual.

I was very surprised when I was told I was to receive this year’s Penn Mutual Life of Significance Award. When Eileen McDonnell, the Chairman and CEO of Penn Mutual, called me, I was just shocked.

I hope you were as excited as I was by the play at this year’s Penn Mutual Collegiate Rugby Championship! It was the biggest tournament yet with 88 teams participating.

We will soon begin the nomination process for this year’s Penn Mutual Life of Significance Award. Introduced last year, the award is given annually to a collegiate rugby player participating in the Penn Mutual Collegiate Rugby Championship who best exemplifies Penn Mutual’s values of integrity, commitment and respect, and has made substantial contributions to society and their community.
