Growing up in Tacoma, Washington, Henry was introduced to rugby by his father, Ric “Zippy” Hall – a founding father of the Valley Kangaroos RFC in Seattle. Henry started his rugby career at the age of 13, playing first for Tacoma Tsunami, then Chuckanut Bay and the PNRFU Loggers Representative Side.
He earned a scholarship to St. George’s School in Vancouver, Canada. He was selected to the High School All American Team in 2010 and captained the team’s tour to South Africa in 2011. In 2011, Henry moved to Auckland, New Zealand, and played for Auckland University’s U-20 Side. In 2012, he was again selected to U20 USA Eagles and helped his team win the Junior World Trophy.
Henry attended college at Saint Mary’s College of California, where he proudly played for the Gaels from 2012 to 2017 and gained his B.A. in Integral Studies and M.S. in Business Management.
The Saint Mary’s rugby program was very influential for Hall; he and his team won 3 D1A National Championships in 15s and 1 National Championship in 7s. Henry then played in San Francisco with the Olympic Club and Golden Gate Club in the Pacific Coast Championship. Most recently he played with Seattle Rugby Club in the British Columbia Premiership.
He says, “I’m most excited to represent the Jackals and be part of Dallas’ inaugural professional rugby team. It’ll be a great opportunity to continue to improve as a player.”
