Thretton Palamo - University of Utah

University of Utah

With a recommendation from Utah alum, USA Rugby World Cup team-mate and Utah's head rugby coach Blake Burdette, Palamo went to Utah and now plays rugby union and American football for the Utes. He spent his freshman year just playing rugby and, in June 2010, led the Scrummin' Utes to victory in the inaugural USA Sevens Collegiate Rugby Championship, scoring two tries in a 31-26 overtime win over the California Golden Bears. A desire to play American football and some help from Burdette, a former Utes tight end, saw Palamo join the Utes American football program in early 2011, taking part in spring scrimmages as a running back.
