That these 2 guys would both be Olympic team members. Horrible video but a good match. 

 

 

 

Here's a good slideshow of Burroughs and Molinaro

I'd like to take this moment to point out something that many people forget but was made very evident in looking at that match... Burroughs had a similar path through his career as Dake. Burroughs also started his career at Nebraska wrestling 141 before moving up through the ranks to end at 165.

 

Don't fight growing, kids. Move up weights sooner rather than later.

You know that Aeron Hill and David Greenwald are telling EVERYBODY they come in contact with that they beat Jordan Burroughs.

I believe Greenwald is who Burroughs defeated in the State finals their senior year. I'm sure Mr. Greenwald would would trade the HNO victory for the one in AC.
