Have any "tweeners" been successful in college as heavies?
« on: November 26, 2015, 01:47:36 AM »
I'm talking about the guys at 220 pounds. Do you guys know of any that wrestled HWT in college and placed highly in NCAAs? Maybe Zbriskie?

I think several heavies could fall into this. Garrett Lowney placed high before injuries. My teammate Pat Degain bumped up from 197 to heavy his senior year and placed 3rd having to eat a lot to keep his weight close to 230.

Zabriskie weighed in the 225 to 235 range I thought

He was indeed...he also won state in indiana...some of the other guys who were on top of the podium the same year were Angel Escobedo, Andrae Hernandez, Alex Tsirtsis, Blake Maurer and Jake O'Brien.

Thanks for the answers. I'm happy to see I guessed right on Zbriskie.

I miss the battles between "normal" heavies and the huge fatasses they had back in the old days.
