Unique roads lead to Knoxville for 3 Future Vols

Tennessee's roster will be bolstered by three transfer students that have committed to playing rugby for the Vols in 2017-2018.  

Daniel Anderson
Daniel is a 2015 graduate of Summit High School in Thompson's Station, Tennessee.  While he played rugby in high school he also was a gifted long snapper in football and chose to chase the goal of playing college football upon graduation.  That eventually led him to Utah State University where his pursuit was cut short by injury.  Returning to Tennessee, Daniel joins the Vols this fall and turns is full focus towards rugby. The 6'0" 195 lb  Anderson projects as a center for the Volunteers.

Logan Doar
Logan is a 2013 graduate of Lassiter High School in Marietta, Georgia where he played rugby and won a state championship for Head Coach Randy Joseph.  He earned a scholarship to play rugby at Arkansas State University. Doar arrives on campus this year as a pre-law major and a revived excitement about the game. At 6'3" 310 lbs, Doar projects to help the Vols at prop - a position he's played since he began playing rugby in 2010.

Carter West
Carter is a 2013 graduate of Franklin High School where he played rugby for Ravenwood and helped the Raptors to a state championship.  After high school, West began his academic and college rugby career at Lee University.  The 5'11" / 185 pound wing has been playing rugby for the past year for the Nashville Men's Rugby Club so brings a wealth of experience to the Volunteers this fall. 

Tennessee welcomes these young men to campus this fall and looks forward to their academic and rugby success in Knoxville.  All students attending UT are welcome and encouraged to come out to give rugby a try. If you have questions, contact Head Coach Marty Bradley at tnrugby@utk.edu.
