North Carolina is one of the unknowns coming into the 2011 Collegiate Rugby Championship. They did not compete in the inaugural event, but they're not entirely new to the 7s realm either, having finished second in the Atlantic Coast Invitational in the fall and had a good showing at Subaru 7s last weekend.

Headlining their roster is captain Alex Lee, RUGBYMag.com DI All American and the Atlantic Coast Co-Player of the year. He's a versatile player, having lined up at openside flanker and outside center during 15s. He is a relentless worker and an accomplished ball hawk, and he'll lead the Tar Heels both vocally and by example.

North Carolina roster:
Harry Briffitt
David Baron
John Byer
James Moye
Simon Wubben
Jacob Rierson
Alex Lee
Russell Martin
Travis Spencer
Gregor Maclennan
Ade Ayodele
Evan Rose
