The Gryphons are a prime example of the power of men with differing backgrounds and nations of origin coming together to achieve a common goal. Players are from all corners of the globe: currently, Scotland, Fiji, New Zealand, South Africa, Peru, and the US are all represented. The club is composed of a diverse group of both recent graduates and seasoned business professionals who hold executive positions in companies like Wal-Mart, Tyson, and other giants in the area. The Gryphons are dedicated to excellence both on and off the field and aim to apply the character, discipline, and integrity that is fundamental to rugby in all areas of their lives.
