The Tulsa Rugby Football Club is excited to announce the Hall of Fame Class of 2020: www.rolex-chat.com

 

Trent & Trevor Taber!

 

The TRFC Hall of Fame exists to recognize those members who have had a significant impact on our club and our sport. This may be through service to the club, region or national organization, achievements in competition, the advancement of the sport, or bringing recognition to the TRFC that moves enthusiasts to seek out and become members of the TRFC. To be inducted into The Tulsa Rugby Football Club Hall of Fame is the pinnacle of recognition for Rugby players and supporters of TRFC.

The two newest members of the TRFC Hall of Fame were to be honored tonight at our 46th Anniversary & Hall of Fame Banquet which has of course unfortunately been postponed indefinitely due to COVID-19. 

 

 

THE TULSA RUGBY FOOTBALL CLUB HALL OF FAME CLASS OF 2020:

Trent and Trevor both began their rugby careers in the inaugural season of High School Rugby in the state of Oklahoma and led the Jenks Trojans to an undefeated State Championship. They then went onto Northeastern State University where they were founding members, players and Coaches of the club, leading NSU to Westerns in only the second year of the clubs existence. They each achieved Collegiate Ozark Select Side honors in 2002 & 2003

During this time, the Taber’s were still playing for Tulsa on any weekend where NSU didn’t play, all told they featured for Tulsa from 1999-2017.

Trent & Trevor are the only players to have played and/or been rostered in all 5 Tulsa RFC Sweet 16 appearances.  They were a part of all four Tulsa RFC Western Championships. They also toured the world with Tulsa representing the club on tours to England, Thailand and New York City.

The Taber’s were more than just great players on the field they each contributed greatly to the rugby community as coaches, administrators and volunteers. 

Trent was the winner of the 2009 William Webb Ellis Award and the 2014 Jared Shoemaker Award. Both for outstanding Service and Commitment to the Club. Trent also might be the only person in Rugby Oklahoma history to both win a championship as a player and a coach. He achieved this feat for Jenks in 1999 as a player, & 2010 as a coach. 

Trevor gained Most Valuable Back and Most Valuable Player honors several times for TRFC. Simply put, Trevor is the men's scrumhalf of the century for TRFC.
