Military rugby

There are two major upcoming events for the military rugby players of Naval Base Kitsap.

The All-Navy rugby team is looking for applications for the Armed Forces Sports Council team. The Kitsap military rugby community has supported the All-Navy team for many years — the 2000 All-Navy team had 12 players who, at one time, played for the Bangor Renegades.

Applications, which are available online at http://www.mwr.navy.mil/mwrprgms/fitness/sportsApplication.doc, are due Oct. 1. For additional information, contact coach Don Sheehan at dsheehan@alionscience.com, donald.sheehan@navy.mil or Pat Wallace at patrick.wallace1@navy.mil.

The eighth annual Army-Navy rugby game is Nov. 21 and Kitsap will play host. The Kitsap Rugby Football Union is actively seeking military players (Navy, Marine or Coast Guard — active duty or reservist) who would like to be on the Navy team for this event. KRFU is developing a Navy team specifically for this event and practices from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday at the upper softball fields on Naval Base Kitsap.

Football refs to raise awareness for prostate cancer

High school football officials across the state will raise the profile of Prostate Cancer Awareness Month by replacing traditional yellow penalty flags with blue flags during varsity games today and tomorrow.

According to the Prostate Cancer Foundation, prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in America, affecting one in six men. A non-smoking man is more likely to develop prostate cancer than he is to develop colon, bladder, melanoma, lymphoma and kidney cancers combined.

More than 192,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2009 and more than 27,000 men will die from the disease. It is estimated there are more than two million American men currently living with prostate cancer.
