Forwards Coach

John "Hoss" Lynd is a former captain of Oklahoma Rugby Club was a student-athlete and a 1990 All-American. “Hoss”  was a Final Four participant with the Dallas Harlequins, a West RFU select-side player, and a USA National Team trialist. He also toured New Zealand and Canada to play all-star rugby.


Rugby is valued as a sport for men and women, boys and girls.  It builds teamwork, understanding, co-operation and respect for fellow athletes.  Its cornerstones are, as they always have been:  the pleasure of participating; the courage and skill which the game demands; the love of a team sport that enriches the lives of all involved; and the lifelong friendships forged through a shared interest in the game.  It is because of, not despite, rugby’s intensely physical and athletic characteristics that such great camaraderie exists before and after matches.  The long standing tradition of players from competing teams enjoying each others company away from the pitch and in a social context, remains at the very core of the game.  Rugby has fully embraced the professional era, but has retained the ethos and traditions of the recreational game.  In an age in which many traditional sporting qualities are being diluted or even challenged, rugby is rightly proud of its ability to retain high standards of sportsmanship, ethical behavior and fair play.
