VOTE: TIAR Awards--Men's Club 7s Player of the Year

All TIAR Awards are brought to you by Canterbury USA. #CommittedToTheGame

This has turned out to be our toughest category yet to narrow down to four. So much so that we cheated as you'll see a little later. It's really amazing how many strong 7s players have emerged in the country over the last few years. The Eagles 7s have depth mainly because a lot of clubs and specialized 7s programs have put in a lot of hard work. In the end we narrowed it down to four (okay five).

Rugby Utah had an absolutely dominate year and they lead the way on this year's nominations. Don Pati was phenomenal for the side as they landed a national championship. Then there are his teammates Jared and Josh Whippy. The former BYU players have been outstanding and we would not be shocked to see them do more. Then there is Michael Al-Jiboori who has proven himself a top talent. He was lights out for Denver. Rounding out the list is Dion Crowder from Washington Athletic Club and the Fiji 7s team that competed at the Rugby Town 7s (he's American). We think Crowder could be the next big player to break through for the Eagles.
