#6 Tad Merritt 3,5,3,3 was one of the key guys that started the resurgence of SCSU into the current national power. He broke his hand early at the national tournament his senior year and still placed third. Won the most dominant D2 wrestler award that year if memory is correct.

Tim Prescott  was 5th twice in NJCAA,  then went up to SCSU and won it, before losing starting spot week of regionals his senior year to freshman Velasquez, who won it the same year,   but never duplicated the feat!

Nice progression for Seamus O'Grady.  I love seeing that.   It is a pity his parents misspelled his name.


Shamus is a stud. One of the highlights of my rather unremarkable grappling career is that I caught him in an armbar in training once and got him to tap in BJJ. Definitely no need to count how many times the reverse has happened hehe
