  1. At VT we were given a sheet from the SID and asked to put three songs we would like to come out to. First match of my freshman year I came out to this: After Keith heard it, he said no way and went with the second choice Painted Black, which was the same as our 149 lber.
  2. Scott Justus went 8-8 at NCAAs, not sure if that is the most wins for someone who never made AA or not... his career record overall was 98-31. And Beat Hahn in a dual meet, and in the 1st round of NCAA's unseeded and Hahn was seeded 4th? Don't quote me on the seed. Also lost as the #1 seed and undefeated his junior year.
  3. I think one of the greatest stories I have ever heard came from a college teammate from PA. He was wrestling Robbie Waller in a high school dual meet, where there was a close team score in which Waller's intent was going to be to pin him after getting some "work" in (typical when a higher caliber wrestler knows, or his coach knows, he can pin his opponent quickly). The first period ended with Waller going for the pin and up 14-0. After the toss my buddy won, made his choice, choose top, gave the optional start symbol to the ref and that was that...as we know Waller was a National Champion, my friend is a neurosurgeon.
  4. I noted the cut in my original post but I don't buy the teammate excuse. I can't remember the last returning NCAA champion who couldn't dominate any true freshman teammate in the same weight class. I'm sure the result wouldn't be the same in February or March, but it is nevertheless surprising that he was five seconds away from losing. I'd say it's the worst wrestle-off result for a redshirt senior national champ against a freshman since Johnny Thompson was pinned by Frishkorn. I'm not suggesting his season is shot, as you mentioned. I'm just saying it was a surprising result. Daniel Frishkorn 2004: Made a name for himself after he pinned two-time national champion Johnny Thompson in the Orange and Black Dual

  6. http://www.techsideline.com/forums/showthread.php?71494-Message-from-Coach-Dresser&p=352771#post352771 Tomorrow morning former VT All American David Hoffman will be named Assistant Coach at his alma mater, Virginia Tech! We are excited to have David back in Blacksburg. David has been coaching at Bucknell University the past 6 seasons. David and his wife, Lisa are now living in the New River Valley. David is currently working camps in Blacksburg. Just as exciting news.....Coach Nate Yetzer will be announced as the Head Wrestling Coach at Ferrum University in Ferrum, VA. This is brand new Div III Program and this place has a ton of potential!! I want to personally thank Nate and Leah Yetzer for all of their time and effort in helping Virginia Tech rise to the NEXT LEVEL. This is a great opportunity for a young guy and a young family. Hokie Fans need to get out and support Ferrum Wrestling. As a former HS coach for 18 years, I can tell you that I could have pushed many of my athletes in the Ferrum direction. This is exciting news for VA high school wrestling and of course for Nate. Lastly, thanks to all those loyal TSL followers. Please email me at kdresser@vt.edu if you want to get MONTHLY information on Virginia Tech Wrestling. Our July newsletter is just out and it is full of all kinds of MAT information. We currently have over 1000 subscribers and we would love to make that number grow, so feel free to email me and get on board. Respectfully, Kevin Dresser

  8. I won't comment until the program makes the annoucement...but I am very excited and so are others :) I think recruiting will explode personally, especially from the "best" high school wrestling state in the USA IMHO.
  9. ;) I love it. No one does more than myself...just a few more days I suppose :P
  10. Maybe it has something to do with the Coaching List :) Head Coach: Kevin Dresser Associate Head Coach Tony Robie Assistant Coach: TBA Volunteer Coach: Eric Morrill
  11. Do tell? I bet whoever it is wishes he didn't pretty soon...
  12. Jason can correct me but Mike Akers won by TF over Bryan Lyttle 15-0 in 1:37 his senior year in the state finals, so it is possible I guess.
