In a sport bursting with conversion stories, Devin’s transition from American football to rugby, from earning an invitation to the Olympic Training Center to finally as a professional rugby player, highlights his potential and meteoric rise in an emerging sport. Short first encountered rugby in high school playing for the Black Hawks in his native Las Vegas. His rapid rise in a sport he fell in love with earned him a spot with the High School All-Americans squad in 2016 and eventually a tour with the USA Falcons development squad in South America. Devin now adds his rugby acumen and 6’4” frame to the forward pack of the San Diego Legion as flanker and 8-man.
