I am excited to announce I will be continuing my wrestling career and beginning my coaching career under Coleman Scott at the University of North Carolina.
I am extremely thankful for being a part of the Hawkeye Wrestling family and tradition over the past 8 years. It was an honor for me to wear black and gold and compete in front of fans who love and understand the sport. My family and I will always be Hawkeyes and Iowa City will always hold a special place in our hearts (from meeting my wife in the training room at Carver, to blowing the roof off of a sold out arena and bringing out the patented double rainbows, to the birth of my son).
I am thankful for the coaches who have been by my side during this journey and transformed me from a non-placer at NCAAs to a two-time world team member. My ultimate goal is to be the best in the world and to do so, I am moving on to explore different styles, techniques, and perspectives to add to the foundation built during my time as a Hawkeye.
There are some exciting things happening in Chapel Hill and I can’t wait to get out there with the coaching staff and be a part of the legacy that is to come.
Hawkeye Fans, Supporters, Teammates, and Coaches – THANK YOU! Goodbye for now, Hawkeye Nation!
