A Collegiate All American at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, Augspurger earned a residency contract at the Olympic Training Center and became a member of the USA Rugby Men's Sevens team under Head Coach Mike Friday. Augspurger made 15 World Rugby Sevens Series stop appearances and helped Team USA win Bronze at the 2015 Pan Am games. He was selected as a reserve for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, traveling with the team and assisting in training.

Before leaving for Rio, Augspurger was brought in to train with the Men's Eagles at scrum half. He made his international XVs debut with the Men's Eagles against Italy in June of 2016, starting at the no. 9 position. Augspurger went on to start in all of his next four matches (Russia, Maori All Blacks, Romania, Tonga), establishing himself as the new starting 9 .

In early 2018, he served as Captain for the Men's Eagles final three matches of the Americas Rugby Championship (ARC). There, he helped his squad go 5-0 en route to earning their second consecutive ARC title.
