Usuki-shi, Oita:

Otsuka Takayuki, 23, a hard of hearing man from Usuki-shi located in Japan's southern island, contributed to six straight victories of Teikyo University at the National University Rugby Football Championship early this year.

Usuki-shi has decided to present a mayor prize to Otsuka for his performance at the end of this month.

After getting a job in Panasonic this spring, Otsuka continues playing the rugby. His achievement is expected as the Japanese selected team member who takes on a New Zealand rugby team this autumn.
