Grey Rugger Talk: Michael Kosilla

  1. What teams have you played for and during what years? SCSU from 1980-1984, New Haven Old Black from 1986-1993, Grey from 1994-2005   2. What first got you started playing for the Grey? I figured at 35 years old there was a chance that I would be younger that a lot of the people that I would be playing against.   3. What are some fond/funny memories you have from playing with the Grey?
