WWU Recruits Canadian All Stars
The Western Washington University men's rugby team has expanded its recruiting efforts to north of the border and have signed a pair of athletes from Earl Marriott Secondary (EMS) for fall 2013. Weighing in a 6'2", 210 lbs., Nathan Muir is a two-sport athlete at EMS. As the leading rusher on the football team, Muir turned down a lucrative offer to play for the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds, opting instead to focus on rugby. As an inside center, Muir helped EMS to their fourth-straight Fraser Valley Championship and was named best back for his efforts.
