Theoretically how long could you keep your eligibility for?

Recommended Posts

Military service stops the clock indefinitely.  
 

You could enlist in the army right after HS. After Basic training and “job training” )AIT, you could go WCAP for 10 years and win 10 world and Olympic medals.  You could apply and get into a college after that and still have 5 years to do 4.  Heck, you could add a PG year at Blair/SEM to that 5 years.  
 

I wonder how old the American U wrestler was?  It was their first All American.  Dan something.  He was a SEAL then went to AU.  A big reason why Josh Glen went into the Navy and became a SEAL.  Glen is still serving.

Good call on the WCAP.  Too bad Provisor didn't go that route!

This 100% needs to be fact-checked but I believe UWW coach Mike Kelly competed at D1 in his mid-30s after active enrollment. Not quite the same, but a fun sidebar to this topic nonetheless

Mike's not that old. He was no older than 28 when his eligibility ran out.

2020- Olympic
2021- Olympic
2022- Redshirt
2023- Wrestle
2024- Wrestle
2025- Olympic
2026- Wrestle
2027- Wrestle

That is without using a medical hardship or anything else, thus it would be 8 years if they were in the mix during the past two years.

Can we all just agree that A. Hamilton and Bob Dole have no remaining eligibility, plus A has that bad hip and Bob a lame arm.
