Skyler Adams To Join The Austin Gilgronis
ROUND ROCK, Texas (November 20, 2019) – Austin Gilgronis is excited to announce the signing of Skyler Adams. Since 2017, the American prop has been honing his skills with the Crusaders Academy and playing in the New Zealand club ranks with Marist Albion RFC and most recently, New Brighton RFC.
“I’m stoked for the opportunity to help the Austin Gilgronis contend for a championship,” said Adams. “If I can grow my game and also grow the sport in Texas and the United States, then it’ll be a job well done.”
Born in 1992, Skyler began playing rugby at the age of 16 with the Colorado Springs Grizzlies in his hometown of Black Forest, Colorado. Skyler played his freshman season with Lindenwood University before joining up with the Glendale Raptors Division 1 side, just an hour from his home in Black Forest.
Skyler’s experience with the Raptors helped him dominate the D1A collegiate rugby ranks with American International College from 2013-2017. Upon graduation from AIC, Skyler shipped out to New Zealand with an opportunity to sharpen his craft against other up-and-coming props in New Zealand.
“Skyler comes highly recommended from the Crusaders Academy and Josh Macy with Lindenwood,” said Andrew Suniula. “It’ll be good to see how he’s developed overseas when we get the team here in a couple of weeks.”
Skyler is hungry to establish himself as a multi-tooled young prop for the Austin Gilgronis.
