Taylor Lujan

Recommended Posts

I know there are great stories of each of the 330 participants. There is one I would like to touch upon- Taylor Lujan. Taylor grew up a few miles away. I got to watch him from time to time in youth, middle school, high school, and college. Though I taught and coached at a different school I did enjoy seeing him compete. 

I was looking forward to seeing if this would be his year to finally earn All-American honors. Then with a failed drug test by the best wrestler in Taylor's weight class (184), the possibility of him winning an NCAA Division 1 Wresting Champion became a real possibility.  His #1 seed at the NCAA Tournament had only been matched once by a Georgia prep- Charlie Heard  (118 lbs, UTC, 1984). With cancellation of the Tournament, Georgia is still waiting to produce an NCAA D1 National Champion. 

Take Care.
