The sport of rugby has a rich history with the Silicon Slopes. With historical powerhouses like Highland High School, BYU, Utah and multiple International and Olympic rugby stars hailing from Utah, it’s fair to say that the Silicon Slopes’ backyard has been a breeding ground for the sport and its many star players locally, nationally and internationally.

- Wade Sherman, VP & Dept. General Counsel at Adobe
- Cameron Jensen, President of Savi Solutions
- Mike Herring, Former CFO of Ancestry
- Ralph Yarro, Founder of Atua Ventures
