Highlights! Granite Bay C/O ‘19 Prospect Drew Sanderson's Junior Year

Drew @drewsanderson will be starting his 3rd year of rugby in 2019 for Northern California Powerhouse Granite Bay.  Despite his short time in the game, Drew has been a regular representative for regional select sides and EIRA touring sides since burst onto the national scene as a sophomore at the 2017 Boys HS National Championships.  Drew has speed to burn and a great boot thanks to a background in soccer.
