Been awhile since we talked wrestling around here. It may be June, but there's quite a bit going on in the sport, so I wanted to put together a link dump for a few things, plus hopefully the people in the know will be able to elaborate a bit more.
First and foremost, Taylor takes on Burroughs tonight at 7 PM EST at the World Team Trials. There were quite a few current and former Penn State wrestlers in the action and I'll post some more info when I get it all wrapped up. Ruth will also be taking on Keith Gavin. For a quick recap, check out this teamusa.org article.
Also, the NCAA gave Taylor a bit of love this week with this Grappling with Success article. A cool piece of information: Taylor's father made him maintain straight A's in order to wrestle growing up, which helps explain his academic success.
And if you're wondering what color socks Taylor will be wearing tonight, I can't tell you. But I can tell you he'll be rocking a sweet Adidas Magic Man singlet.
