Cole Zarcone

Originally from Camas, Washington, Zarcone grew up as a multisport athlete and played football from the age of six through to Central Washington University’s program. With aspirations of being a professional athlete potentially coming to a dead end after football not panning out the way he expected at CWU––rugby busted open a new path. With a family nudge from his brother, Zarcone spent time learning the game in 2016 before successfully making the Wildcats’ varsity rugby team. Zarcone played four years for CWU, earning a handful of accolades during his rise into rugby. He was CWU’s Back of the Year in 2017, a 3x Academic All-American 2018-20, 2x 7s CWU Player of the Year 2018-19, Team Captain in the 2019-20 season, and a 2020 Finalist for the Rudy Scholz College Player of the Year Award. San Diego selected Zarcone in the 2020 MLR Draft with their second-round pick as the packed-with-pace wing debuted in MLR in 2021. Zarcone scored against Seattle in both of their match ups in his debut season. After the season, Zarcone played his 2021 Club 7s season in the Seattle area under the Washington Athletic Club banner and competed at the USA National Rugby 7s Championship at Starfire Stadium in August under head coach and Seawolf alumni, Shalom Suniula. Another professional opportunity panned out for Zarcone in the first-ever Premier Sevens competition in September. He represented the Locals in the PR7s inaugural championship tournament in Memphis, Tennessee and played against other MLR talent, including Seawolf Tommy Clark and Seawolf alumni Peter Tiberio. The 5’11, 202 lb. back-three player brings his energy, hard running lines, and hunger to improve to the Seawolves backline.
