Aaron Poklukda of Abilene Christian University is this month's Penn Mutual NSCRO Player of the Month.
Pokluda has been the Vice President of Abilene Christian University Rugby since it started in late 2015. Recently, he was named "Man of the Match" during a friendly match against a new rugby club in the conference, Trinity University. The match was a hard and physical match between both teams' forwards. Pokluda's smashing tackles and support in the ruck showed his abilities as a dominate forward. His quick decision during the final minutes of the game and accurate throw-in to the first man in a line out helped his team claim victory over Trinity, 12-5.
Pokluda has participated in 15s and 7s rugby for ACU and was selected to the 2016-2017 LoneStar Rugby Conference Rattlesnake All Stars.
The Penn Mutual NSCRO Player of the Month receives a framed certificate as well as a custom NSCRO ball and jersey courtesy of Rhino Rugby.
