The winner of the 2022 Kamil Patel Memorial Rugby Scholarship is Greyson Fesko of the Syracuse Silverbacks.
Greyson's coach, Patrick Scully wrote,
"Greyson has welcomed young players to the team and modeled what a rugby player should be. He shows great sportsmanship and is the first to congratulate or opponent or pick up a fallen teammate. Both a scholar and a gentleman, he will be graduating with a 3.8 GPA from Fayetteville-Manlius High School this June and plans to attend Environmental Science and Forestry @ Syracuse University , where he will play for the SU Hammerheads"
"Rugby has been the only sport that has stuck with me, I’ve played football, lacrosse, hockey, and wrestling but none of them can compare to my love for Rugby. This is because Rugby combines all of my favorite parts of these sports that I started off playing, and combined it into one game"
Greyson will receive $2,000 to apply to expenses this fall at the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry at Syracuse University. He was nominated by his coach Patrick Scully.
