Thread: Your favorite wrestling memory--college version.

    Default Your favorite wrestling memory--college version.

    Yes I've posted this in three different areas so let's hear your favorite memory having to do with college wrestling. Either as a wrestler, coach or spectator.

    I'll start

    I grew up in Silverton Oregon which is just down the road from Corvallis. I can remember talking our coach into letting us come in before school and condition for 40 min so that he would let us out of practice 20 min early (roughly the amount of time we conditioned at the end of practice) so that we could make it to Corvallis in time for the OSU duals.

    After that it would have to be watching Cael win his fourth title on the big screen in our dorm.

    It's really hard to pick a favorite. I guess - Ironside over Kolat.
    2011 NAIA Wrestling Championships, March 3, 4 & 5, Cedar Rapids, IA. I'll see you there.

    As a high school wrestler: in my school's first ever varsity meet, pinning my opponent to clinch the meet.

    As a college wrestler: beating a former New Jersey State Champ.

    As a high school coach (volunteer assistant): breaking a league rival school's streak of 43 meets without a loss to win our league. It was one of those matches where the gym was packed, the air was electric, and our guys were really pumped up and all wrestled their best - and it was on my birthday.

    As a spectator: seeing Lou Banach pin Bruce Baumgartner in the 1981 NCAA's at Princeton, then going to the Iowa victory party and talking to Gable and Gene Mills.

    I am not sure I even know where to begin on that list.
    Champions are made while no one is watching.
