Colton starts off the show with ‘The Breakdown’ by giving an update on what’s going on with the Colorado XOs, what’s going on in MLR, and the postponement of the Women’s Rugby World Cup and all of the rugby you can watch this weekend (0:00-11:20). Following ‘The Breakdown’, Colton talks with Colorado XO wing Terron Beckham about how he’s liking playing rugby, how it compares to the NFL workouts he’s been a part of, and the support he’s received from his community. (11:21-31:21). After the conversation with Terron, Colton assigns some ‘Required Reading’ and closes the show with ‘The Loop’ (31:22-33:00).
Terron Beckham comes from a track, football, and basketball background. After a minicamp with the New York Jets and a workout with the Indianapolis Colts, Beckham became a fitness model and personal trainer while searching for his next opportunity. That opportunity turned out to be a tryout with the Colorado XOs, and he’s been hooked on rugby ever since. Follow him on Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube for a behind-the-scenes look at the XOs.
