As the two-time World Rugby Sevens Player of the Year Award Winner in 2017 and 2018, Perry Baker signed an NFL contract with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2011 before playing two seasons in the Arena Football League.
The native of Daytona Beach switched to rugby in 2013 and quickly impressed the rugby world.
He signed with the U.S. Men’s National Team in 2014 and was an integral part of the U.S. National Sevens team at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.
“Everyone I know that is introduced to the sport of sevens falls in love with it,” said Baker. “New fans in North American will love the speed, the excitement, and the nonstop action. Personally, I live for big moments. And playing for fans in my own country through PR7s will be filled with those moments. I can’t wait.”
