Austin Trotman

He was very impressive taking 3rd at NCAA's last year.  I see he just won the NYAC Holiday International, beating Keith Gavin in the semis and a Russian in the finals.  He seems to be a late bloomer on an upward trajectory...maybe he'll be the man for the U.S. at 84 KG in the future?

so is the last time he lost the first round of NCAAs?  that'd be impressive.

except it was the semis against Bosak. 
Since Jammen has told me twice to change my signature, I can only assume his wrestling knowledge is no longer something I can count on along with pizza and beer.

I've been a huge fan of Austin's his entire career -he was having a great year 2-3 years ago before getting injured by Usman-trotman wants to start his own ministry some day -yet I'll not hold that against him.
You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

Scores quickly in neutral, very tough to scramble on if he takes a shot.  Perfect for freestyle...

I remember watching him in Rochester 2 years ago - I think it was - when ASU and CMU came to wrestle the Gophers - he beat Steinhaus - same time Tony Nelson lost to Trice from CMU if my memory serves me.  Trotman beat Steinhaus soundly if I recall.
