Bruce McLane, former head coach of four-time national champions NYAC, former head coach of MET NY All Stars and host of his own rugby podcast, has agreed to take on the role of college coordinator for Pelham Youth Rugby.

“Some parents and kids have been asking me about college programs, what schools have good programs, what college coaches are good ones, who offers scholarships, help etc.,” said Pelham Director of Rugby Matt Persanis. “I could not think of a more connected rugby person than Bruce. He knows everyone in the rugby world and is well-respected.”

McLane will give Pelham players advice on the different college rugby programs. He can also make personal introductions directly to the coaches of most of the college programs in the USA.
