Madison Hughes started playing rugby when he was seven years old in England. Also a soccer and cricket player in high school, Hughes developed a well-rounded athletic skill set at an early age.

In 2010 he earned High School All-American honors and followed the achievement with Junior and Collegiate All-American honors in subsequent years. In 2012, he helped the Men’s Junior All-Americans win the World Rugby (then called IRB) Junior World Trophy and added a RugbyTown Sevens Cup title the following year.

In 2014 he made his Eagles Sevens debut at the Wellington Sevens tournament. And, from there, Hughes went on to become the top points scorer at the conclusion of the 2015-16 season and was player of the tournament at the 2015 London Sevens where the Eagles Sevens won their first ever Cup title. He has also on numerous occasions been dubbed the top tackler of the HSBC Series.

In 2016 Hughes was selected to Captain Team USA’s roster for the Olympic Games Rio 2016. Following his Olympic debut, the athlete went on to earn his first cap with the Men’s National Team (15s) against Romania in Bucharest.

After suffering a season of injury in 2018, the athlete was named to Captain at Rugby World Cup Sevens 2018 – the first ever U.S. hosted Rugby World Cup.

Hughes also commentates on the side and owns a Bachelor’s Degree in History.
