The USA professional team, the Houston Strikers, have added local player to their squad. The team has signed Woodlands Youth Rugby and Baylor University alum Jackson Slater. Slater recently played for second row for Lone Star rugby. Jackson is truly an asset for the Republic of Texas All-Stars.
Strikers’ Head Coach, Justin Fitzpatrick said, “I am excited to have Jackson join the Strikers. At 6’ 6" & 270 lbs. he has the physical characteristics to thrive as a modern lock. Jackson is a prime example of the reservoir of natural athletic talent in the Houston area.”
