We are happy to announce that Oliver is joining the SD Legion Family, as he was our 1st Draft pick for 2022. He is the first player from any San Diego University to be picked in the MLR Draft.
Oliver captained his USD rugby side this season to a league title and a national title at the Rugby 7s Collegiate Championship. He then attended the World Rugby Combine and from his performance here, was selected to attend the 6 week USA Academy Camp.
Oliver has just completed his Masters Degree in Leadership and Educational Sciences.
