Chermely Travels to Jamaica with USA Rugby South

February 21, 2013 (Knoxville, Tennessee) – Knoxville Men’s Rugby Team Captain and Former Volunteer Wayne Chermely has been selected to represent USA Rugby South in the North American Caribbean Rugby Association Championship Tournament on Saturday, February 23.

Wayne joins 22 other players from the south (TN, AL, FL, GA, MS, LA) this weekend as the team travels to Kingston, Jamaica to face off against the Jamaican National Team in the first round of the NACRA playoffs. The South advanced to the playoffs with a 50-23 win over Mexico in Marietta, GA last month, and Jamaica did so by downing Turks and Caicos 31-13. Saturday’s victor wins the right to take on Bahamas, with the winner of that match advancing to face the winner of Cayman and two-time defending NACRA champion Bermuda.

Chermely started playing rugby in 2002 for Bearden High School during the inaugural year of the Smoky Moutain High School League in East Tennessee. After graduation he attended the University of Tennessee and played 4 years for the Volunteers while earning his degree in Architecture. Since joining the Knoxville Men’s Rugby Team he has served as the team captain and a repeat recipient of the Most Valuable Player award as selected by his peers.

Wayne is happily married to his wife, Sarah, and works as a CAD Development Engineer at Legend Fitness.
