Ryheem Powell

Like many American kids, Powell played football in high school. He and his friends were watching sports highlights when they came across rugby clips. After some research, Powell  found a local club to join and he hasn’t looked back since. 

Powell is from Warminster, PA and attended William Tennent High School. While playing high school football to stay active, Powell played for Doylestown Rugby Club from U15 through U19.

Powell also had the opportunity to travel to Ireland and New Zealand when he attended the Crusaders International High Performance Unit. Powell also was selected to play on the Philadelphia United Select team in 2020.

Powell comes from a large family where he is the middle of seven kids. Family is actually a huge pull for him coming to Dallas as part of his extended family lives in Texas. He also has a two year old pit bull puppy named King who will accompany him.
