GLENDALE, Colo. -- When former Colorado State football player Zac Pauga let go of his NFL dream, he didn’t waste time filling the void.

Pauga, who played 49 consecutive games for the Rams, signed with the Houston Texans as a free agent in 2011. But when his NFL dream collapsed, Pauga joined the Glendale Raptors rugby club.
