(From) Annual Rugger Report:
This past year has been an amazing start for the Radford Rugby Alumni Association. In less than a year the Radford Rugby Alumni Association has:
Sponsored the very first hole of the NOVA/D.C. Golf Tournament. Hosted by Radford’s Office of Alumni Relations the event raised $5,000 that will go towards enhancing the education of a Radford University Student
Purchased brand new jerseys, pads, and a banner for the team
Aligned the strategic level goals of Radford Rugby with the goals of Radford University’s new President, Dr. Brian O. Hemphill as well has had Rugby Alumni meet with him at every location across the state as part of his Alumni Tour
Sponsored the team for multiple tournaments including the historical Cherry Blossom Tournament, the James River’s Christmas 7’s, and the Roanoke 7’s. This was the first time the team has ever played in a 7’s tournament
Partnered with Radford University and consolidated all Rugby Alumni accounts into one endowment account with over $20,000 which will be used for future rugby scholarships
Due to the unyielding and steadfast support of the club’s faculty advisor, Drew Dodson, the club has secured Radford University’s Selu Conservancy as their official community service location. Located on 380 acres along the Little River, Selu is an “extended classroom” that hosts an impressive retreat/meeting center and classroom facility

On Arpil 2, 2016, Radford University Sigma Phi Epsilon alumni and current brothers converged on the Signorello farm in Leesburg to participate in a day of service in memory of John Signorello ’89.
“Only one guy from the current Sigma Phi Epsilon chapter at Radford University knew John, but that doesn’t matter. He was a brother,” said Devin Jones, current president of Sigma Phi Epsilon. Four years ago, Signorello passed away from a heart attack
In 2009, Signorello and his wife Carolyn purchased 280 acres of land for which they shared a vision. The couple saw it as their little slice of heaven and were excited for the opportunity to make it their own. Today, John’s four children, who share his passion for lacrosse, often play the sport in a small field on the family’s farm.
“It was always their dream to establish this beautiful farm where he could run lacrosse camps and grow his family,” said Scott Arthur ’91. “The unfortunate thing was that he passed before he could really see it come to life.”
The overall goal of the 2016 day of service was to address some of the immediate needs on the farm. “We basically had Carolyn make a ‘honey do’ list. A bunch of us came out and looked around to figure out what was possible to get done in a day,” said Arthur.
Radford University Sigma Phi Epsilon raised $7,000 to provide food for the volunteers, fund the project supplies and support the Radford University Sigma Phi Epsilon chapter and alumni in the Brother by the Wayside account. This account was created to come to people’s rescue whenever brothers are in need.
“We look out for our own,” said Arthur.
The commitment, love and brotherhood on the Signorello farm that Saturday was unforgettable.
