Lasike, Paul

Lasike, a former standout rugby and football player for Brigham Young University, previously spent the inaugural 2018 season with the Warriors, recording seven caps for a Warriors team that went 3-5 before losing to the Glendale Raptors in the Major League Rugby Playoffs. After his impressive showing in 2018, Lasike signed with the Harlequins of Premiership Rugby in the United Kingdom. Lasike instantly became a fan favorite in London, making 29 appearances in four seasons with the 2021 Premiership Champions, scoring five tries.

In addition to his time spent in Major League Rugby and Premiership Rugby, Lasike is a USA International, earning 10 Caps for the USA Eagles. A two-sport star at BYU, Lasike also enjoyed a successful football career, playing for the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals and Chicago Bears before beginning his career in pro rugby.

Lasike now returns to Utah where he spent his high school and college years and where his journey in professional rugby began, back in 2018.
