On Friday, The Erie Rugby Club lost a brother, teammate, and friend when Donald Glover, our beloved loose-head prop, was killed in a motorcycle accident on Peach Street in Erie, Pa. In remembrance of Donald, all teams in the Allegheny Rugby Union, observed a moment of silence before kicking off their weekend matches.
Erie, as Donald would have wanted, traveled to Akron Rugby Club’s home field…and with help from Donald, whose presence was felt throughout the match, Erie lit up the scoreboard in a 68-17 blowout win.
With heavy hearts, The Erie Rugby Club would like to offer our deepest condolences to Donald’s loved ones. Donald was a great man, and left a lasting impression on everyone he met. The team will surely miss him both on and off the pitch.
Rest in Peace, my friend.
