Rochester High School Rugby Club was founded Spring of 2015 with 7 high school students from Century and John Marshall. When asked what their team name would be there was a unified understanding of the bond that rugby created between the two schools. Naturally, brotherhood was founded.
Under the name, Brotherhood Rugby traveled to Eagan, MN from April of 2015 to early June 2015 competing against other schools with established rugby programs. Rugby Sevens was the style of rugby that fit best for the new club. It consisted of 7 players from each team granting the club a massive range to utilize the high speed rugby that they played best.
With great heart and under the leadership of Captain Zachary Devries (JM) and Co-Captain Chris Tabor (JM), Brotherhood rugby went on to compete and win 1st place during the Spring High School Rugby Sevens State Championship.
Today rugby continues to grow at John Marshall. With the club being open to all schools, it finds its home within the JM campus. Now focused on retaining and building off of the strength of last years victories, JM rugby's popularity and members grow in athleticism, leadership, and team work.
