Two sport wrestlers

Recommended Posts

Class of 2023 Iowa City High standout Ben Kueter announced on social media that he was committing to Hawkeye Football and Wrestling.

Seems like he a a good wrestling recruit, but not a great one by Iowa standards. It makes me wonder, though, how often in recent years has any prominent wrestler played football or any other second sport in college?

Josh Hokit AA for Fresno state was also the starting runningback and Rutgers heavyweight recruit coming in this year Kionte Hamilton is going to be doing both

No, since he wasn't homeless in college (as per the OP).

klehner is talking about a video series he did where he pretended to be homeless and challenged passers-by to takedown contests offering people 10:1 odds (unless you mean this was after he graduated, which is true, but klehner was only kidding anyway)(unless you are also kidding, which you probably were, and i think i'll go back to sleep now)

Washington Post has a great profile piece on Spencer Myers doing both football and wrestling his senior year: https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/colleges/spencer-myers-two-sports-17-hours-10000-calories-with-a-maryland-student-athlete/2014/09/30/3b8a3cf8-431d-11e4-b47c-f5889e061e5f_story.html

It made me wanna take the big jump from 2 eggs to 3. Very inspiring.

Art Baker, Syracuse NCAA Champ and AA Football. I know this thread was originally about current two-sport wrestlers but it morphed into a list of multi- generational 2 sport AAs. Also, Jack Cuvo, East Stroudsburg NCAA Champ and Cross Country AA.
