Colton Strickler kicks off this week’s show with ‘The Breakdown’ by talking about the latest former Raptors to sign with another MLR team, the Utah Warriors new rugby school, and tells you about all of the rugby you can watch this weekend. After ‘The Breakdown’, Colton talks to former North Carolina A&T State edge rusher Tré Smalls about his football career and how he’s liking the transition to rugby. After the interviews, Colton once again skips over ‘Required Reading’ and closes the show with ‘The Loop.’

Tré Smalls was played outside linebacker and defensive end for the North Carolina A&T State Aggies football team. He made an immediate impact for the Aggies by playing as a true freshman. Smalls was a four-year contributor on a team that won three consecutive Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference championships and three Celebration Bowl championships from 2017 to 2019.
