Austin Herd signs Lindenwood All Star Wesley White
Austin Herd is excited to announce the signing of Wesley White, a 24-year old eighth man (8) from Lindenwood University.
Born in Cape Town, South Africa, Wesley attend the prestigious Bishops Diocesan College where he had the opportunity to pull on the blue jersey and represent the First XV side. Wesley was selected for the U18 Western Province Team which played in the SA Schools International against France. His natural rugby talent caught the selectors attention and he was awarded a contract to attend the Western Province Rugby Academy in Stellenbosch.
In 2014, White moved up the coast to the City of Durban, where he joined The Sharks U19 team. At the end of The Sharks U19 season, Wesley flew north where he played for US Montauban in the French Pro D2.
Wesley decided to pursue his studies at Lindenwood University in Missouri, where he has played for the last three years. White serves as captain of Lindenwood in 2019, where they charted a course to a USA Rugby D1A Final Four, a USA Rugby College National 7’s Championship and and a Collegiate Rugby Championship. White was a two-time USA Rugby Collegiate All-American and recently spent time at the USA 7’s High Performance Camp.
“I have played close attention to Wesley through his Collegiate career, he has become a multifaceted player on the pitch, said Todd Clever, Director of Rugby. As we built our model for the 2020 season, we placed an emphasis on developing USA Eagle eligible players to support the National team pathway and Wesley’s experience and dedication to the game on and off the pitch epitomized the types of players we want to build around”
