Freshman Awarded National Rugby Scholarship

Just days before Isiah Willis executed slashing runs and skip passes during the recent state tournament, the University of Mary Washington Mother's rugby player received some motivational news.

Willis is among only eight players nationwide to receive the 2010 Kevin Higgins College Scholarship that honors former U.S. team rugby player Higgins.
