Seth is from the land of hockey, Prince George, British Columbia. He was there for a decade before relocating to Vancouver Island. Though he spent a lot of his athletic career on the ice, he found rugby in the much more favorable climate of Vancouver Island and never looked back, fully transitioning to rugby in college. He’s represented his province and his country from U16-U20, as well as various age grade teams. Beyond his skills on the field, Purdey also graduated from the University of California-Berkeley with majors in history and urban studies. He’s interested in commercial real estate or law after his time playing.
