Yale Secondary grad Paul Ahn has been named to the roster of Canada’s under-19 men’s rugby squad for a tour to England in February.

The tour will feature matches against three academy sides: Welbeck Form Military College (Feb. 26), Leicester Tigers Academy (Feb. 29) and Northampton Saints Academy (March 3).

Ahn has excelled at the regional and national level, winning the B.C. title with the Fraser Valley selects side, and winning a Canadian championship with the provincial squad last summer.

Ahn is also gifted academically – he was one of Yale’s top students last year, with an average of over 95 per cent, and he’s since moved on to UBC, where he’s studying sciences.

Fellow Abbotsford native Jorden Best has also been named to the U19 team.
