Strikers Sign Second Row Jackson Slater

The Houston Strikers have added another local player to their squad. The team has signed Woodlands Youth Rugby and Baylor alum Jackson Slater. Slater recently played for Lone Star rugby and plays in the second row. He joins an ever growing list of Strikers players as they round out their roster.

"I would like to thank Coach Fitzpatrick for the opportunity to play for the Strikers. I’m looking forward to the promising competition that Major League Rugby is shaping up to be, and aim to grow the game of rugby in the city that I’ve grown up in," Slater said in a release.

Strikers’ Head Coach, Justin Fitzpatrick said, “I am excited to have Jackson join the Strikers. At 6’6 & 270Ilbs 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. We are looking forward to identifying yet more talent through a series of combines we will announce soon.”
