Devin Short

24th Jun 1998 1.90m/101kg Blindside Flanker

Short transitioned from football to rugby after discovering the sport late in his high school years.

His meteoric rise for the Black Hawks in his native Las Vegas earned him a spot with the High School All-Americans squad in 2016 and eventually a tour with the USA Falcons development squad in South America.

He was selected as a "Next Olympic Hopeful" by the U.S Olympic Committee in 2018 and earned an invitation to the Olympic Training Center to finally pursue a professional rugby career.

In 2018 he signed a deal with San Diego Legion and started all 8 games in 2018 at only 19 years old.

He went on to make 23 appearances for the side, scoring 15 points before he was snatched by rivals Nola Gold on a two-year deal in June 2020.
