Brothers/cousins on award stand at the same time?

Recommended Posts

That would be great to see them wrestling for 7th/8th, or 5th/6th! It would make for a great storyline for ESPN to talk about before the round they wrestle.

 

Oh yeah, and it would help Iowa out big time if we got Nathan to AA.

I believe you are thinking of the Hynek brothers, Paul (of Northern Iowa) and Trent (of Iowa State)

 

They were both All Americans at Heavyweight but didn't place in the same year. Trent was 2nd in 1998 and 3rd in 2000, whereas Paul was 6th in 2001 and 2002.

 

So close, but not quite.

 

Yes, I believe those were the ones I was thinking of, looks like I was close but not quite.

 

I think there was another pair of brothers who wrestled each other at NCAAs a while back, but one of them was significantly better then the other and was a multiple AA, while the lesser brother never placed. I want to say one of them wrestled for CMU and was an upper weight

I believe you might be mixing up some of the discussion on here a few years ago when the topic came up about the odds these brothers might face off but it didn't happen. One was the older brother Eric Simaz of CMU at 197 and his younger brother Cam Simaz who was a 4x AA and national champ at 197 for Cornell

I agree on both accounts.

 

Can you imagine having to face your brother in the Round of 12? I can't imagine a situation with more pressure.
