Best Collegiate Career

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Sorry if this is brought up every.

Who had the best D1 career ever from Indiana wrestlers?

I don't follow college closely so I'm not sure who I'm missing but from memory D1 finishes were.

Howe:  2, 1, 3, 2

Esco:  4, 1, 5, 3

J Tsirtsis:  1, 3, 7

Hump: 2, 3

Micic, Lee, and Red all have great chances of putting themselves high on this list.

Interesting our studs won their frosh or soph year but didn’t win it again. I guess Imar and Heil is a perfect example of how tough it is to win it senior year.

It's amazing to me how hard it is to win even compete for a national championship. You have to be world class. 

How many of these guys have made a world team/won a world medal?

Lee, Yianni, Micic, Zain, Hall, Zahid, Coon, Snyder. I'm sure more.

Were any of them true frosh ? 

Howe was a true freshman (2nd), soph (1st) and jr (3rd) then double redshirt Sr (2nd).

I believe everyone else was a redshirt their freshman year.  Tsirtsis was a redshirt freshman champion.  Esco a redshirt soph champion.

Plus Kelvin Jackson of Madison Heights (mich st) 

I think Kelvin Jackson was from Anderson Highland rather than Anderson Madison Heights, but true that he was an NCAA champion while at Michigan St.

Might be Charley McDaniel, the only guy from Indiana (Bloomington) with 2 titles. Interesting tidbit, there's an article on Intermat on the various sizes of heavyweights and it said he weighed in at 190 lbs, making him the lightest ever to win heavyweight.
