MEET THE HOPLITES:
Twirch, Kayak, Coach and Tank
Coach Fisher named three club members as Hoplite of the Month - Lyndsay "Twitch" Roberts, Jake "Kayak" Cardwell and Jose "Tank" Argote. Each of these three Hoplites put a lot of time and effort into getting the new home pitch ready for matches. Thank you, Twank and Kayak!
The Aliance Men's Side chose Santa as the Man of the Match. He was strong in line outs in the first half and at the breakdown and scored a try. Santa often travels for work and is away for long stretches of time, but when he's in Tyler, he makes his club a priority -- and it shows! Congratulations, Santa!
Warthog, Microwave and Coach Fisher
The Shreveport Valentines chose Women's side President Warthog as the Hoplite Woman of the Match on 9/23 -- and we couldn't agree more! Warthog made a number of great tackles and maintained a great attitude. Coach Fisher said of Tiffany, "She is a leader - both on and off the pitch."
The Shreveport Men's Side chose Frozone as the Man of the Match. He not only scored tries and supported his teammates, but he also made several key tackles on defense and a great catch under a high ball. LeDale may be new to rugby, but he's getting there fast!
