This is the HISTORY OF THE ALFRED UNIVERSITY RUGBY CLUB as reported in the public record by Bill Pulos; a lawyer, author, teacher; the club’s co-founder and coach for 16 seasons 1985 - 1990, 2009 – 2012. It is a compelling tale of a championship rugby program started in 1985 at ALFRED UNIVERSITY, a small, liberal arts institution (home to the State College of Ceramics as well) located well off the beaten path in Allegany County, New York. The book is a compilation of stories, articles, photographs and tributes comprising 57 consecutive seasons of good standing at Alfred University; a rugby club record matched by few colleges in New York. Pulos weaves a compelling story infused with poignant memories and messages. He etches a memorable portrayal of a courageous group of athletes whose relationships were forged with strength, pride, attitude, nerve and courage. Working out on Jericho Hill at 2250 feet above sea level in the Town of Alfred, time and time again the ALFRED RUGBY club overcame it’s brutal and treacherous conditions of mud, ice and snow, and in doing so, developed a “take-no-prisoners” reputation as one of the toughest, hardest hitting rugby clubs in the state. Over 28 years, the ALFRED RUGBY club has been a force to be reckoned with. The reader is left with one conclusion: The Alfred Rugby Club represents an enduring saga of continuity, connectivity and competition; a story of grit, guts and glory.
