Cameron “Cam” Davidowicz of Haverhill has signed a two-year contract with the New England Free Jacks professional rugby team.

Davidowicz, son of Michael Davidowicz and Deborah DiBurro of Haverhill, is a 6’1″, 225 pound back row player who was originally on the training squad.

“It’s an honor to be signed by the New England Free Jacks,” said Davidowicz in a statement. “It means a lot to me to play for my home team. Can’t wait to take the pitch in front of my friends and family come springtime.”

Twenty-four-year-old Davidowicz first started playing rugby during his freshman year of High School for the Essex County Bulldogs. He went on to attend and play college rugby for the Plymouth State Norseman, earning two NSCRO All-American honors during his time at the program. While in college, he represented Mystic River in the Premier Summer 7s competition and went on to represent the Boston local team in the Division One 15s competition where he has become a standout.

Davidowicz also represented the New England Independents, the Free Jacks development program, during the 2020 season, earning man of the match in the first matchup with the Free Jacks in January of the year. He continued to lead the way for Mystic River during its 2021 America Rugby Premiership campaign where he played across a multitude of positions against perennial D1 powerhouses such as the New York Athletic Club, Old Blue, and the Life University Men’s Club.

“Cam impressed when he joined the Free Jacks wider squad as a training player this year and proved himself as a loose-forward with Mystic River during the 2021 ARP,” said Free Jacks Performance Director Tom Kindley. “He is a good local man, tough as nails, effective in contact, and surprisingly athletic. He has well and truly earned the opportunity to progress to the next level and we look forward to seeing his game develop further within the MLR.”

The New England Free Jacks competes in Major League Rugby.
