My 1st Season as a Texan

Posted by Eric Ingram on March 25, 2014 at 3:30 PM Comments comments (5)

Well the rugby season has come to an end and I can say without any doubt in my mind that it has been the best one I've ever had. We came into the season with nothing on our minds other than making it to nationals and having success there. We competed in 5 regular season tournaments, with each one bringing more and more successes, ending with a regular season record of 23-3 (by far the most winning season I've had).

 

This took us to Sectionals here in Houston where we went 3-...

The Texans Qualify for Nationals

Posted by Eric Ingram on March 3, 2014 at 2:30 PM Comments comments (0)

This past weekend, the TIRR Texans and I competed in the Mountain Sectional tournament, which is the qualifier for Nationals.

 

The Friday was full of successes, defeating the Denver Harlequins and the University of Arizona Wildcats. Saturday morning rounded out our pool play as we played a close 3 and a half quarters vs the Tucson Roadrunners, but ultimately fell short by 7 points.

 

Following that game, we had our first crossover against the San Antonio Ste...

From Boise to Bham to Bham

WARNING: Long post ahead. I apologize.


     November has been a crazy month, featuring a lot of rugby and a lot of exciting things to tell you all about. The month started out with travel to something not rugby related (which almost never happens). I went to Phoenix, AZ for the SpaceVision 2013 conference, hosted by the Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (SEDS) organization. I got to...

     Well everyone, the time is finally upon me, after months of preparation and even longer years of anticipation, I leave for Team Force tryouts tomorrow.

     I have been preparing both physically and mentally for what I know will be an intense experience. I have been honing my skills on the court and I've been hitting the gym to build my strength and endurance. Off the court, I've been studying plays, ...

The Texans Look Good at the Start of the Season

Posted by Eric Ingram on October 9, 2013 at 2:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Hello all,

 

     Well this past weekend was my first tournament of the season, the Metal & Muscle Expo, with my new team the TIRR Texans. Going into this, we felt good, but really had no clue how well we'd all work together and how we would do as a whole. In the weeks leading up to the tournament we had many intense practices trying out different lines and figuring out how best to put the piec...

An Invitation

Hello All,

    I guess I couldn’t keep up with the pace I set on my last few posts and as such, haven’t been as consistent as I would’ve hoped. All apologies aside, I do have some big news to present.


    The other day I received an invitation to try out for Team Force, which is the U.S. Developmental Quad Rugby team, essentially the farm team for Team USA. I prev...

UH Rugby Clinic

Posted by Eric Ingram on June 22, 2013 at 2:50 PM Comments comments (0)

Hey everyone,


     I know, two posts in one month, that’s crazy. The reason for that is I’m really trying to use this platform more frequently to keep those who follow my quad rugby career better informed. But, alas, we stray from the topic at hand.


    This past weekend I attended a quad rugby clinic at the University of Houston hosted by Adaptive Athletics...
