Roy Bradley, a senior at Archbishop Moeller High School (Cincinnati, Ohio) has accepted a rugby scholarship and will attend Furman University in the fall.

Bradley, 6’3 and 225 pounds, has played lock, eight-man and served as a defensive end on the football team that captured the 2012-13 OHSAA division 1 state championship. Last year, Moeller ‘s rugby squad finished second in the state, and Bradley was Most Valuable Player on the Ohio Elite Team.

“I am proud to join Furman because I want to continue the essence of the winning program,” says Bradley. “And I look forward to winning many championships with Coach Roberts and my fellow teammates.”

Furman Coach John Roberts says Bradley, part of Furman’s second scholarship class, will add some needed size and mobility to the Furman forward pack.

“Roy runs well with ball in hand and is a capable passer,” said Coach Roberts. “He also jumps in the lineout.  He is one of the finest high school forwards in the Midwest, and I anticipate that he will compete for a starting job immediately.”

Roy is the son of Roy and Leslie Bradley of Loveland, Ohio.
