Apparently someone is making a documentary about star wrestler Austin Trotman. No one could deserve it more. Despite being a 9 seed at the 2012 NCAA Tournament, he finished 3rd overall.
For that result, he was named the SoCon Male Athlete of the Year. Not wrestler of the year, ATHLETE. The win that put him into 3rd was named GoASU’s Most Memorable Moment of the Year. It should also be noted that teammate Kyle Blevins finished 4th in the country right behind him. That’s just unbelievable.
For those who remember, the High Country Press ran an article that said he would compete at the Olympics. Thanks to help from some of you readers we cleared that up. This video kind of explains the confusion, he really was training at the Olympic center.
Personally, I love the passion Trotman shows for his sport, which is arguably the toughest there is. Appalachian is blessed to have a tremendous wrestling program, partly due to a nationally known wrestling camp we hold every year. I’ll definitely be looking forward to this documentary.
