What does being an Ironside mean to you?
Being an Ironside is having that sense of belonging. It means going out on the field every Saturday and playing not just for yourself, but the whole team. It has pushed me out of my comfort zone, and it gives me a sense of genuine camaraderie.
What is your favorite memory of being on the team?
I've got two. My first rugby tournament in Ohio where the coach said "Well done, Vic. You did everything I asked you to." And being the flag-bearer for the Ironsides at Providence Pride.
What can you not go a week without?
What is your favorite comfort food?
Any pasta recipe. Linguine with pesto, though. *chef's kiss*
What are your other hobbies besides rugby?
I'm a big aviation buff. I learned how to fly a few years ago and no vacation is complete without at least one flight, no matter how short.
