Brian Hightower and Don James Jr are Atlas Rugby Champions, and US Eagles Hall of Fame giants in the USA. "DJ" holds up the Front Row, and Brian brings Sevens, Rugby World Cup and NBC commentary to our screens.


Chaired by Laurence Geller CBE , a former English Rugby star, now a transatlantic corporate and philanthropic giant with homes in Chicago and London; the Board members bring a wealth of skills in international development, law and finance to Atlas USA. 


Atlas USA exists to alleviate the suffering of the poorest and most deprived children in the US, South America, and the developing world through the power of rugby.

The money raised in the US is used to help disadvantaged children and young people in America and internationally. See Where we Work in the menu for an overview.

Atlas USA is particularly pleased to partner with the Memphis Inner City Rugby project which has turned around the lives of college kids in one of the poorest areas in the US, where incalculable harm is done through gang violence.
