Schuck, the faculty adviser for ONU's mens' and womens' ruby club teams, wrote about how U.S. National Rugby Teams defeated international competition in the 1920s, but interest in the sport waned as the Olympics did away with it as an event.  Rugby's popularity is, however, on the rise again.  His essay is a part of the new collection American History Through American Sports: From Colonial Lacrosse to Extreme Sports (2012) that is published by ABC-CLIO Praeger.
