Upstate New York rugby pioneer makes Hall of Fame
Question of the Day
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - An Albany-area businessman who helped boost rugby’s popularity in upstate New York is being inducted into the sport’s hall of fame.
The Times Union of Albany reports (http://bit.ly/1pTISrt ) that 67-year-old Tom Selfridge of Saratoga County is one of eight people being inducted into the Hall of Fame. The inductees will be honored Saturday at a ceremony in Houston before a match between Scotland and the U.S. national team.
Selfridge played five matches with the U.S. national team and has been a prominent figure in upstate rugby programs since the early 1970s, when he moved to New York from Ohio after playing football at the University of Cincinnati and rugby for a Cleveland club.
He helped grow the Upstate Rugby Union while playing for local clubs and other U.S. teams.
