Malafu excelling in rugby at Kutztown

May 28, 2014 - Robert Collias
Last year at this time, Kina Malafu was coming a performance that helped Baldwin High School to its second straight boys track and field state team title.

Now, the former Bears football standout is excelling for the Kutztown University rugby team.

Here is the start of freelancer Jackie Owens's story on Malafu from today's paper (if you haven't read it yet, check it out, it's worth the read):

For Kina Malafu, rugby started off as a backyard hobby. It has evolved into his collegiate passion.

Malafu, a sophomore at Kutztown University in Pennsylvania, has only been playing collegiate rugby for a semester but has already made an impact as a member of the Golden Bears rugby club.

The Baldwin High School graduate led his team to the Subaru Sevens tournament crown in Delaware on May 17, earning MVP honors after scoring five tries in four matches, including the final one in a 28-14 victory over Penn State in the title match that improved the Bears' record to 35-1.
