NOLA’s Shawn Riley Passes Away

NOLA Gold wing Shawn Riley has passed away from a sever heart issue, the club announced Wednesday.

Riley did not pick up rugby until 2012. His first professional experience was in 2016 with PRO Rugby’s Ohio Aviators. 2017 and 2018 saw Shawn return to the club level in North Carolina. The 30 year old wing had been with NOLA since 2019.

Our thoughts are with his family, the NOLA Gold, and the greater MLR community.
