FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

November 9, 2018

SEATTLE - The Seattle Seawolves are excited to announce the signing of USA Eagle, Ben Cima.

Ben, born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, moved to Washington D.C. at a young age where he kicked off his rugby career. Playing for Gonzaga, Cima quickly gained National Team attention at the high school level – selected to the USA High School All-Americans in 2012 and represented them until 2014. During Ben’s time at the University of Maryland, where he is wrapping up his final year of school, he has dawned both Men’s Junior All-Americans and senior National Team jerseys for the United States multiple times. One of his biggest career moments to date was nailing a penalty goal from the 50 meter line in the final minute of the 2016 Junior World Rugby Trophy qualifying match versus North American rival Canada. Ben joins the Seawolves with 10 caps for the US under his belt and more likely in his future. With a strong boot and instinctive decision making, Cima looks to thrive within the Seawolves veteran backline.

“I could not be more honored to be part of the championship pedigree that comes with being a part of the Seawolves,” said Cima. “Even more excited to play for the city of Seattle and the unbelievable fans that the franchise has.”
