Ross Deacon

FORWARD

Born in⁣ San Francisco, CA to Irish parents, the family moved back to Ireland before⁣ his first birthday. Deacon grew up in Ireland around the game, in fact he strapped on the boots for the first time at the age of 7 years old for Enniscorthy RFC.⁣

Over the past⁣ 20 years, Deacon has continually sacrificed and taken every opportunity to put himself in a position to get better. His commitment has awarded him selection to the United States U20 Men’s National team, the Leinster U20’s and 3 different Major League Rugby⁣ contracts with The Austin Herd, Rugby United New York and now Rugby ATL.⁣

Deacon started for Life University Men’s team and has contributed to their 2019 Atlantic Rugby Premiership Championship.

When not practicing⁣ his skills or focusing on the game, you can find the talented musician playing the guitar and serenading a surrounding audience. ⁣

His charisma,⁣ experience, and senior mentality will certainly benefit our young side entering its first year of league play. ⁣
