Former Utah football player John Cullen feels grateful to be part of building Utah’s rugby future with the Warriors
HERRIMAN, UT — It took John Cullen years to learn to love football.
When it came to rugby, however, the former Utah offensive lineman was passionate from the first play.
But as a teen growing up in California, the former Utah offensive lineman realized it was football that offered him the best chance to play collegiate sports.
Still, he doesn’t believe he would have achieved his goal of playing college football — or in the NFL — if he hadn’t found rugby his freshman year of high school.
” It’s a sick obsession with the sport. There is nothing like it. … I don’t get super cliché and super corny, and I’m not the most gung-ho guy ever, but there are things about rugby that are indescribable, unless you play it, unless you go through it.”
