If she can see it, she can be it.

“Probably one of the best moments of my life...

I don’t think my teammates and I realize the reach we can have. We are playing a sport we all fell in love with and now get to do it as a job. This little girl reminded me of what our jerseys mean and all the people we can impact. I like to think that we are all just passing through the jersey because someday someone else will be repping the red, white, and blue with our old numbers on their backs. So I’ll endeavor to leave the jersey better than I found it so that other girls can slip it on and continue to grow this sport and show the true power of being a woman.” - Ilona Maher

Kamil Patel Memorial Scholarship News and Events

The Buffalo Rugby Club and the Kamil Patel Memorial are proud to announce the winner of the 2019 Rugby Scholarship is Marcello Massone of the Dwight School in NYC. Marcello was nominated by his rugby coach Heidi Rubenstein-Brethel. Marcello will be attending Boston College in the fall and intends to play for the BC rugby team. This year he was captain of his school rugby team.

The scholarship is dedicated to the memory of Kamil Patel. The scholarship was created in the spring of 2018 to assist high school rugby players who plan to continue their education in college while playing rugby. Renewable scholarships of up to $500 are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice. The maximum value of the scholarship is $2000.

Kamil was a multi-sport athlete in high school. He started playing rugby with his brother Dannish and friends on the Kenmore East community-based high school team. He went on to play at the University of Buffalo and with the Buffalo Rugby Men’s Club. Although Kamil was a very good athlete and an exceptional rugby player, it was not those attributes which endeared him to his coaches, teammates, family, and friends.

Kamil was the exceptional individual who thrived on bringing people together. He always had a smile. He was inclusive, positive, supportive and eager for the next adventure. Kamil’s joy for life and his love for people made him an unforgettable person within our rugby community. His unbelievable ability to make those around him laugh and smile will never be forgotten.

n January 2018, a week before his 30th birthday, his life was ended in a random act of violence in Miami Beach Florida. Our hope is the memory of Kamil will be sustained in part by the awarding of this scholarship to students, who follow in his footsteps, loving rugby and taking advantage of the opportunity it provides to bring people together and help them grow.

In the spring, the coaches of all RugbyNY high school teams were invited to nominate a candidate from their team. The coaches were asked make their nomination based primarily on the intangible personal attributes set out in the program description. Upon receipt of the nomination from the coach, the nominees were invited to complete a personal essay. The scholarship winner was picked by a committee of evaluators from RugbyNY and the president of the Buffalo Rugby Club.

Last year's winner was Jason Messing of Grand Island Rugby.

The 2019 Nominees and their coaches were:

Hunter Phillips –Kenmore Rugby–William Conrad
Kevin Roche–Canisius High School–Nick Maurer
Beyonce Dennis–Play Rugby USA Academy–Denisse Zambon Regalado
Kelvin Huynh–Syracuse Silverbacks–David Bunyan
Keeshan Prashad–James Monroe HS–Taye Daniel-Ayibiowu
Marcello Massone –Dwight School–Heidi Rubenstein-Brethel
Simone Summers–City Honors Women's Rugby–Matt Frank
Daniel Pope–Harvey School Boys Rugby–Luigi Loiola
Callum Younger–Saratoga Mustangs–Greg Matthew

Information about the scholarship and how to help fund it going forward can be found at The scholarship program is administered by the Buffalo Rugby Club, a 501c3 nonprofit organization. President Jeff Qualey had a chat with inaugural Kam Patel Memorial Scholarship winner, Jason Messing, this morning before a St Bonaventure rugby practice.

Congratulations to the Rugby NY Metropolitan Varsity all-stars going 2-0 last weekend in NJ with wins over Rugby PA and Rugby CT to take 1st place, with JV taking 3rd with a win over Rugby NJ. Rosters and pictures below.
