On Saturday we lost not only a team member, but a young man, in Matthew Hammerdorfer, that represented everything that we strive as a team, as an organization and as a human being to be. It was our honor to have him as the Captain and starting Flyhalf for our Fort Collins Youth Rugby Team. It has been very easy to see how much he impacted the lives of those he came in contact with both on and off the pitch. Matthew embodied the spirit of rugby. Rugby is more than a sport, we are more than just players, we are a family and Matthew displayed this with his incredible leadership and love for the game and everyone around him. As a team, organization and family our heart is broken by this tragedy. We would like to extend our condolences and our prayers to the family and friends of this outstanding young man. Matthew you will be greatly missed, but never forgotten.
