Looking for a chance to cheer on a hometown kid as part of a start-up professional sports league?
Frisco native Connor Cook, 27, is part of the Glendale Raptors professional rugby team, a greater-Denver founding-member franchise for Major League Rugby.
On Saturday, the Raptors will kick off the first games in Major League Rugby history, versus Austin Elite Rugby.
“We’ve become more resilient during a long, successful preseason,” Raptors head coach David Williams said. “But real tests are the in-season games. We want to start strong and show our confidence in front of our home crowd.”
