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.
