Mr. Theo Smith - 1st Year
Theo hails from the Northeast having grown up in the fishing world. A rugby player his whole life he travelled around Asia before attending and graduating from Franciscan University of Steubenvill. While there Theo formed incredible ties with his mates on the pitch and has been around rugby ever since. Theo joins the Crusader coaching staff for the 2013 season. Theo and his wife and one child live locally where he works in the wine-making business. Christendom is very excited to have Theo take the reins of the very successful Rugby program and hopefully continue to build on what has been set in motion.
