FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
April 21, 2018
SEATTLE –The Seattle Seawolves are excited to announce the signing of USA Eagle and U.S. Military World Class Athlete, William Holder.
William began his rugby career early on thanks to his father and a traveling childhood, playing for the Golden Cats and East Palo Alto Razorbacks.
Holder committed to the United States Military Academy at West Point where he continued his rugby career for the Black Knights. During his time
at West Point, he entered the United States Men’s National Team pool and got his first XVs cap in 2012. As William gained more experience on the
pitch, his accolades continued to grow, suiting up for the All-Army 7s for the first time in 2013 and for the US Men’s 7s team in 2014. Holder
remains in the National Team player pool for both XVs and 7s and continues to represent the All-Army 7s side at their tournaments throughout the
year. He is a current member of the U.S. Military’s World Class Athlete Program (WCAP), making him the second WCAP player added to the Seawolves
roster. The flyhalf/fullback brings valuable experience, leadership, and a strong boot to Seattle’s backline.
“It’s an honor to be a part of the inaugural Major League Rugby season with the Seawolves,” said Holder. “We have a great group of guys with outstanding
support and I’m looking forward to seeing what we can do!”
