CPL Autumn Czaplicki
Women's Rugby Sevens
Autumn Czaplicki grew up playing various sports with an aggressive edge which later led to her love for rugby. She started playing rugby in 2018 at West Chester University after being encouraged by her parents who met while playing the sport. Her motivation to excel comes from the opportunity that God has given her to participate in the sport she loves and represent her country as a Soldier-athlete. Rugby has taken her around the world and provided her with incredible experiences and memories. Since joining the Army, she has become more disciplined, less likely to make excuses, and focused on overcoming challenges. The Army has made Autumn more independent, disciplined, and tough, which has translated into her becoming a better athlete.
