New American rugby star highlight video

I think this guy is a track star looking for something to do.

Carlin Isles

Enamored by the Olympic rings, Carlin looked for alternative pathways into a Team USA jersey. Isles had seen rugby on TV before and, through track, knew there was a team training in at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif. He turned to the internet for more information and found the story of another rugby crossover.

"I was watching Youtube videos, and I saw Miles Craigwell, and then I emailed Miles and I asked him about rugby and he told me it's a great sport," Isles told RUGBYMag.

"So that got me motivated to play it. The only thing I knew of was 15s, and then I saw 7s, and I was like I'd be in heaven in this sport."

Rugby, in its Sevens version, will be included in Rio 2016 Olympics.
