To close out the fall season, Wake Rugby attended a casual team dinner to celebrate the past 3 months of competition. This time together allowed players to reflect on the past season while sharing memories of standout plays and a few individual bloopers before joining #TieDyeNation as the mens basketball team hosted The Citadel at the coliseum. Special recognition was given to freshman Austin Cunningham and his individual effort during the University of Maryland game that received him the Try of the Year (check it out at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KeXtElTjQCE). In addition, players voted on other individual awards to recognize teammates that consistently performed at a high level throughout the fifteens season and the results are as follows:
2013 Fifteens Season Player Awards
Outstanding Back: Austin Cunningham
Outstanding Forward: Bryce Lambert
New Comer of the Year: Austin Cunningham
Most Valuable Player: Jack Zimmerman & Austin Cunningham
Best & Fairest Award: Dwaine Hodges
