Francis Brunette

I’m the youngest of four and born and raised in Green Bay (Howard). I’ve played soccer, football, wrestling, track and rugby. I have four children who are involved in many activities. I married Tara in 2009.

I have worked for UPS since 1997. Now that I do not play rugby in the fall I spend a lot of time in the woods bow hunting. We enjoy skiing in winter and being outdoors in summer.

I have been playing rugby since 1994 and my past teams are: Green Bay Mavericks, Bay Port, Green Bay Celtics, Denver Barbos, Milwaukee Black and White, Men’s All Star teams: Wisconsin Select, Midwest select.

Helped create Pulaski Rugby in 1998 and have been the head coach since. Had the pleasure of coaching 3 state titles. In 2012 I was asked to lead our state high school all-star team. 2013 Coached the national champion all-star team.

Was a key player in the development of the Wisco 7s Series for both boys and girls in Wisconsin.

Jared Skinkis

I am the youngest child in my family as I have two brothers and two sisters. I grew up on a farm until I was ten. Throughout my life I have always enjoyed having a good time with family and friends. Sports were always a big part of my life and still are a big part. I’m an avid Packers and badgers football and basketball fan. I graduated from Pulaski high school in 2012 where I played football, ran track, and played rugby. After graduating I entered the work force for two years but now I am attending NWTC in Green Bay. I still play rugby for the Green Bay rugby club and it is one of my favorite hobbies.
