The Arlington Stallions' organization has come a long way since their humble beginnings in 2004. From an organizational perspective down to coaching to its most tactile level, the Stallions continue to be the best they can possibly be. As a result, the Arlington Stallions Rugby Club continues to be honorably recognized not only by parents and players, but inquisitive fans alike. Here is a sample of what people are saying about the Arlington Stallions.


“Rugby is not only a fun sport but also a great way to keep in great shape. The Stallions Rugby Club works hand in hand with football, improving aspects in each game. Highly recommend playing rugby, as it is a great time.”

Joe Biagi, Buffalo Grove HS ’15

“Playing for the Stallions has created friendships that will be with me forever. You meet some of the greatest people playing Rugby, both on and off the field. I believe with the skills I have acquired through playing with the Stallions I will play at college, select side, and possibly on the international team.”

Zack Niro, St. Viator HS Class of 2014

“Rugby offers much of the same discipline and conditioning as football, plus the boys gain even more camaraderie and friendship. Middle schoolers love this sport! Rugby and Football are naturally complimentary. We highly recommend the Arlington Stallions Rugby Club for your middle and high school age athletes.”

Joe Preissing, Commissioner/Arlington Cowboys Football

“Rugby is a sport that has completely changed my life and the Stallions program is a perfect starting ground. It has allowed me to all compete at the club, All-State and All-American levels both here and in Great Britain.”

Kevin Lydon, Conant HS, 12, Current Rugby Sevens Stallions Coach
