Hailing from Ghent, Belgium, Lenaerts started playing rugby at the age of nine. Jeremy represented his national side’s U17, U18 and U19 squads from 2008 to 2010 before moving to France to participate in U23 competitions from 2010 to 2014 and winning the French championship with Rugby Club Narbonne. Jeremy comes to Seattle off the tails of competition as a member of the 2017 AIG Collegiate All-American squad where he played as a starter in their second row. A member of the Central Washington University Wildcats, Jeremy was previously a 2016 Collegiate All-American honorable mention and progressed to the 2016 Varsity Cup semi-final with the Wildcats.

At 6’4” and 255lbs, Jeremy brings a physical style of play that will aid the Seawolves in dominating the scrum. We are excited to see the power and professionalism he exhibits on and off the pitch.

We are proud to welcome Jeremy Lenaerts to the Seawolves family.
