Most of us now know Brian Vizard as the head of the US Rugby Football Foundation, and as a TV announcer and analyst, but before all of that, Viz was the captain of the USA team.
He captained the USA in the 1991 World Cup, and earned 22 caps during a time when the Eagles rarely played more than three games a year. He was a mobile and aggressive No. 8 with a deep understanding of the game, and this helped him be versatile enough to be a standout in 7s, too. Vizard represented the USA in 21 7s tournaments to add to his 15s legacy.
One of the most influential American rugby players in terms of his impact on the game after his retirement, Vizard was a force as a player, and that shoulder never be overshadowed by his accomplishments as a broadcaster and champion of the game.
