what They’re Saying


LPRFC has a unique flavor due to
each of your contributions and all of your stories make up the soul of the club. I can only say is that in the twenty plus years that I served as president of the LPRFC I have had the amazing privilege of knowing you all. I am humbled and honored to have been a part of this amazing tradition that is now approaching the half-century mark.

Many years ago, as a teen, my wanderlust took me to central Illinois, A railroad hobo in Peoria once told me, “You come into this world bare-assed, and if you are lucky , when you leave you just might be wearing a suit. “It is my belief that I was among the group of us who were fortunate enough to wear a green and gold jersey at some time in between.

Charlie Steele

I have always given my heart and soul to the ONE and ONLY club I love. To reach the National Championship game in 1994 with all my weird and wacky friends was bittersweet. We lost in the final, but we made it that far with the same guys who were there when times weren’t always so good. Let me clarify that. The
times were always good but the teams weren’t. We never lost sight of what Lincoln Park Rugby was all about.
