Noah Brown

The Chicago Hounds selected Noah Brown in the first round of the 2023 Major League Rugby Collegiate Draft. The Hounds drafted the Indiana Hoosier outside back with the fourth overall pick as the first draft pick in the history of the franchise. 

The South Bend, Indiana native began playing rugby at perennial powerhouse Penn High School. After graduating in 2019, Brown continued his career at Indiana University. He was a mainstay for both the 7s and 15s programs throughout his Hoosier career. 

Throughout college, Brown was also a mainstay for the Chicago Lions’ 7s program, where he suited up during his summers spent away from campus. His combination of size and blazing speed immediately became an asset for the Lions and in 2021, Brown helped the club win a 7s National Championship. 

His standout performances on the club circuit, coupled with dominant performances in college 7s tournaments, did not go unnoticed. Brown earned an invite to the USA 7s High Performance Camp in 2022. Later that year, he was named Captain of the Under-23 USA 7s team. Finally, Brown made his senior 7s debut at the iconic Hong Kong 7s tournament.
