    From Casey Cunningham....

    Hello again to everyone. We are about four weeks into our preseason now and things are going very well. We are only allowed eight hours a week at this point. Two of the eight hours can be skill instruction and the other six hours can consist of lifting and conditioning. Next week we start our official practice where we are allowed twenty hours a week of any combination we choose. Our guys have been working hard and are making gradual process in regards to their conditioning, their weight, and their skill level. As I have mentioned several times we have a pretty young team in general so it is a lot of the little things with these guys in regards to instruction that are huge for them to get out of the gate quick. The attitude has been good and the work ethic has been good. Most of our team chose to stay here this past summer so they had a good base under them as we started which makes it easier to continue to teach them versus having to pound then into the ground on the road. Do not get me wrong when we say that because if you have been around on Football days you have seen our guys in the mornings busting their butts on the hill over by Bryce Jordan (thanks to Cody Sanderson’s creativityJ) so there is a little pounding but most of our pounding comes on the mat because we are wrestlers not track stars.


    Next up we have our kick off dinner on October 22 where you will have an opportunity to meet the guys on the team and get their autographs and also hear from several of the coaches on their thoughts for the year. As I mentioned before we will have some items which will be up for auction with the money going to the Penn State Wrestling Club. Then on November 12<sup>th</sup> we have our first match of the season at Bloomsburg and on that same weekend we welcome Lehigh into our gym on November 14<sup>th</sup>. This is going to be a packed house so make sure you get your tickets early. It is my understanding that this year if you are a season ticket holder you have the opportunity to purchase additional tickets before the general public so that is a great benefit of having season tickets.


    We as a staff are very excited about our team and the potential that they have. We have a ways to go but the guys are on board and are making quick progress. It will not be long now and we will be scrapping so get ready!!!


    In separate but relevant news Les Sigman of the Nittany Lion Wrestling Club competed hard in the World Championship but failed to place. In international competition if the guy who beats you does not make the finals then you are out of the tournament and that is what happened to Les. The guy that beat him won a bronze medal so he did not get to continue in the tournament after his loss. There will be six NLWC wrestlers competing in the Sunkist International Tournament in Arizona on October 22-24. The NLWC has a great base of guys training in State College now.


    These wrestlers are Franklin Gomez 132 (National Champion MSU), Nick Fanthorpe 132 (All-American ISU), Teyon Ware 145.5 (2-Time National Champion OU), Cyler Sanderson 163 (All-American ISU/PSU), Dan Vallimont 163 (NCAA Finalist PSU), Doug Umbehauer 185 (All-American Rider), Jake Varner 211.5 (2-Time National Champion ISU), Les Sigman 264.5 (4-Time NCAA Champion Nebraska Omaha-World Team Member), and Aaron Anspach 264.5(NCAA Finalist PSU). These guys are all class acts so it is great to see them in State College.

    Have a great week and It would be great to see some pictures of any deer that are shot with the opening of bow season this weekend.

    Nittany Lion Wrestlers Announce Intra-Squad Dual Meet Event is free and open to the public






    <table width="155" align="right" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"> <tbody><tr> <td rowspan="2" width="5"> </td> <td width="150" align="center">

    Red-shirt freshman Jake Kemerer wrestled in the intra-squad dual meet last year.
    </td> </tr> </tbody></table> Sept. 29, 2010

    UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - The Penn State Nittany Lion wrestlers will hold an intra-squad dual meet on Thursday, November 4, at 7 p.m. The event will take place at Rec Hall, is free and is open to the public.
    The coaching staff, led by head coach Cael Sanderson, will decide upon the participating line-up later this fall. Last year's event drew nearly 2,500 fans and gave people a chance to see many wrestlers who ended up red-shirting during the 2009-10 campaign.
    Penn State will begin its season on Friday, Nov. 12, at Bloomsburg in a 7 p.m. dual. The Nittany Lions open up home action two days later on Sunday, Nov. 14, when rival Lehigh comes to Rec Hall for a 2 p.m. dual.
    Season tickets for the 2010-11 Penn State wrestling season are on sale now. This year's package features seven home duals (the Nittany Lion Open is not part of the package) and costs only $42 for adults and $28 for youth (18 and under). Fans can place new orders for season tickets by calling Joel Diamond at 814-867-2557. A $5 per order handling fee will be added to new season ticket holders. Single dual tickets will go on sale later this fall. The 2010-11 Penn State wrestling season is presented by the Family Clothesline.

    Junior taking injury well

    By Jocelyn Syrstad
    Frank Molinaro doesn’t like to lose, and he definitely doesn’t like to be told he can’t do something.
    But when his dreams of becoming a national champion are in jeopardy, he will do whatever it takes to achieve those goals — even if it means being told he can’t practice or compete for the time being.
    Molinaro is out for an undetermined amount of time with an injury he suffered at wrestling practice on Sept. 16 that the Penn State Athletic Communications office could not disclose because of competition issues. With wrestling being a one-on-one sport where grapplers look for their opponent’s weaknesses, the team kept specifics of Molinaro’s injury under wraps.
    The Barnegat, N.J. native is a returning two-time All-American and was ranked the No. 3 wrestler by WIN Magazine in the 149-pound weight class for the upcoming season. After finishing fifth at nationals last year and eighth as a 141-pounder in 2009, as well as finishing fourth in the Big Ten last year, Molinaro is considered a legitimate contender for the title this season.
    Assistant Communications Director Pat Donghia said the wrestler visited a team doctor earlier this week and the injury will not require any surgery.
    “It’s really nothing too serious,” Molinaro said in an e-mail. “As long as I keep doing the things the medical staff tells me, my time out will be minimized. Right now, I’m still lifting and doing as much cardio as I can. Overall, I’m not worried because I’ll be in shape and ready to win when I come back.”
    The redshirt junior has been doing hand bike workouts, as well as lifting weights to keep himself in the best shape possible while he waits to be cleared to return to competition.
    His coaches and teammates know Molinaro will do whatever it takes to get back on the mats.
    “Absolutely I know he’s frustrated right now, but I know he’s also accepted it,” former teammate and Nittany Lion Club coach Dan Vallimont said. “He’s in practice every day and he’s going to keep doing as much as he can until he’s ready to fully wrestle again. He loves to be out there and I know he can’t wait to get back.”
    And with Molinaro’s preseason goal to be a national champion, he will do what he can to make a speedy recovery.
    His mom, Michele Molinaro, said her son is already focusing on when he can get back on the mat, saying he has a countdown going on his Blackberry for when he is hoping to return to action.
    “He’s very driven,” she said. “He set very high goals for himself this season and he works hard to reach those goals. He won’t let anything get in the way of that. This won’t deter him from trying to win the national championship.”
    Molinaro finished the 2009-10 season with a 33-7 record, remaining undefeated through his first 21 contests. In those 33 wins, 12 were by major decision, one fall and one technical fall.
    The 149-pounder said with his success in recent years he knows what it takes to be at his best in March for both the Big Ten and NCAA championships. And while most people would be frustrated with having a setback, Molinaro is trying to find the good in his situation.
    He said he is certain he will be in prime condition by the end of the season, not being as worn down as he might be otherwise.
    “I may be a little behind where I was but I'm going to peak, as we call it, a little later in the season, which will benefit for March,” Molinaro said in a telephone conversation. “Also my body will be fresh unlike some kids who may get a little worn down during preseason. That's my take on it.”
    That doesn’t mean Molinaro was content with the injury from the get-go.
    When he realized something was wrong last week in practice after standing up from a drill, he said he freaked out a bit. However, after letting the injury sink in, he realized it wasn’t as big of a deal as he was making it out to be.
    “At first I was really dramatic about it,” Molinaro said. “I immediately thought I couldn't win Nationals in Philly, which is like my dream. I was so wound up I couldn't think straight. But I had great support from our trainer and school doctors so they are keeping me positive along with my family, girlfriend, friends, coaches. Everybody has been awesome in keeping me positive.”
    And rightfully so as now neither he nor his coaches, teammates or family are concerned that this injury will act as a setback to the wrestler.
    “He’s in a better place now with it and he’s already focusing on the endpoint,” Michele Molinaro said. “And just like coach Cael Sanderson told him, ‘I really think this will make you better in the long run.’”
