College All-Americans Name Oxford Camp Roster

The College All-American have named their camp roster ahead of next month's match against Oxford University in Philadelphia. That match is part of a double-header that will also see Saracens play Newcastle. The team is loaded with recent college stars and capped Eagles. Bryce Campbell, Matt Jensen, and Peter Malcolm have all been with the Eagles over the last year and will have a chance to play. Malon Al-Jiboori is with the Eagles 7s team. Other players like Nick Boyer, Cody Melpy, and Macie Koroi could end up on the Eagles radar soon.

One of the intentions of the College All-Americans camp is to identify players for the Eagles Select squad for the Americas Pacific Challenge. Those players are then intended to be funneled into the Eagles for the November internationals. So it's very possible that a player identified in this camp could end up playing for a national team through the end of November.

The College All-Americans will also be up against one of their former members. Conor Kearns is the captain of Oxford and is also viewed as a potential Eagle.

The match takes place on October 16th and will be shown on The Rugby Channel.

Squad: Malon Al-Jiboori (Lindenwood), Alec Barton (St. Mary's), Nick Boyer (Cal), Bryce Campbell (Indiana), Estevan Florez (Life), Brady Gent (Davenport), Chad Gough (Utah), Matt Jensen (BYU), Maciu Koroi (Life), Jake Lachina (Army), Jeremy Lenaerts (Central Washington), Vetekina Malafu (Kutztown), Peter Malcolm (Wheeling Jesuit), Alex Maughan (Life), Brian McKeller (Penn State), Connor McNerny (Navy), Cody Melphy (Life), Cristian Rodriguez (Lindenwood), Kevin Sullivan (Cal), Teddy Terezis (Indiana), Marcus Tupuola (Notre Dame College), Duncan van Schalkwyk (Life), Blace Walser (Arkansas State), Mitchell Wilson (Life), Holden Youngert (St. Mary's)
