Earlier in 2015 we hired Rex Norris, Jr. as our Head of Football. Rex grew up in Football with a father that coached for several NFL teams and under Barry Switzer at Oklahoma. As a longtime Football and Rugby coach, Norris, Jr. built Kentwood (WA) High School into a perennial powerhouse while also building Kent Crusaders Rugby from the ground up. We think Rex is the perfect mix between the two sports, and as a former high school teacher, he is a highly skilled educator who can adapt programming to any audience.
Rex is assisted by other leading minds in the application of Rugby tackling skills to Football including University of Washington Rugby Head Coach (and former USA national team player) Kevin Swiryn.
