Kareem Odeh

Growing up in Brunswick, Ohio, Kareem began playing rugby during his sophomore year at Brunswick High School. The following year, Kareem was selected for the Ohio Celtic Elite team. He anchored the team as the tighthead prop. He went on to play on the U19 All-American and Collegiate All-American team as well. 

Kareem enrolled in Life University to continue his education and rugby career. The rugby team fell just short of the National Championship his freshman year, but came back strong and took back-to-back National Championships in 2018 and 2019. 

Kareem says, “I was very honored that Coach Allen and Elaine are very eager for me to come and sharpen my skills at the next level.” He continued, “I am ready to get to work.”
