Name/nickname: Noby Takaki/ Nobu
Position: Hooker / Flanker when I’m feeling fast and nimble
Hometown: Temecula, CA

How I got into rugby: I was aggressively combating the freshman 15, and saw a couple of posters up in my college bookstore.

Teams played for: UIC, Chicago North Shore

Fun fact: Batman has beaten Superman more than once.

Favorite quote: When angry, count to four; when very angry, swear.-Mark Twain

In real life… I work as the Performance Training Manager at a large health club in Chicago.

One thing I love about rugby is… the simple fact that the moment you set foot on the pitch everything else in the world fades away. For 80 minutes you don’t have to think about anything else, but rugby.
