Next Play has many athletes as members of our unique community. Usually their story adds up. Where and how they grew up makes their path to stardom in football or basketball seem plausible. Such is not the case with Blaine Scully. How does a multi-sport star in California high school sports go on to become one of the United States' most decorated rugby stars ever? And, no, rugby was not one of his sports in high school. 
 
In this episode of Next Play Perspectives, Blaine takes us on his journey to finding the game of rugby and shows us how nichier sports like this in America tend to draw participants with an intrinsic love of the game. Blaine's rugby journey took him all over the globe. He is now in the first inning of his second career, starting a family, and exploring where his next intrinsic passions lie.
