LAS VEGAS - The field at Herbert A. Derfelt Elementary School usually hosts football and soccer games. These days, you'll see rugby in these parts.
"The kids, they're just wholeheartedly in 110 percent. It's made a difference in the climate around school," said fourth grade teacher Chris Leffler.
"Everybody can get the ball. It doesn't matter how fast you are. You just have to pull the flags and have fun," said fourth grader Savannah Burke.
Like Savannah, fourth grader Michael Carroll has plenty of fun with rugby. He recently took up the sport.
"Just about a year or so," he said.
"I like to call it the most American sport most Americans don't know... NFL football came directly out of rugby," said USA Sevens Rugby Competition Manager Jon Hinkin. "When we came to Las Vegas three years ago, (we brought) culture of each individual country."
