Ostberg to Chinnor

Christian Ostberg (ball carrier) breaks the line with Alghero
Christian "CEO" Ostberg, the former Stony Point HS Rugby stand-out, takes another step in the move up the pro rugby ladder. 

This past Saturday was Christian's final day with Alghero in Italy's Serie B. Ostberg's family has confirmed that he has accepted an offer to play for Chinnor in England's National League 2 South and reports there this week.

Christian's progression to this point took many steps. He was coached by Life University Alum Paul "Coach Rock" McCartney at Stony Point HS in Round Rock, TX. CEO captained the Rugby Texas' High Performance U19 team in 2012 on their trip to Colorado. He then started school at Life University and began playing for the undergraduate JV squad. From there, Christian was selected to the 2013 USA Rugby Junior All-Americans that played in the fateful JWC. His performance in France caught the eye of a talent agent who eventually signed him to the Alghero squad.

Congratulations CEO on this move! We are proud of you and your rugby representation of the Lone Star State!
