We always love to point out great accomplishments of the great players in our program but this one demands special mention! Ben Wierenga is one of the most unique athletes where his skill set not only makes him an outstanding football player but now he has reached the pinnacle by making the Under-18 United States National Rugby Team!
We have always been proponents of multi-sport athletes as the diversification provides great value to develop more well rounded players on the gridiron!
How he manages two full time sports is nothing short of miraculous and should be revered by college football coaches across the country! Take a look at the following interview to gain a good understanding how special this young man is!
Best of luck Ben! We know that you will succeed!
