Why Central?
You know that is the hardest question I get asked. I think I chose Central because I knew the program was up and coming. I also wanted something different than the city. I wanted to see what else was out there! No better way than small town Iowa

Best class you’ve ever taken
The best class would have to be ICS. Lets be real it will be the easiest class of our college career

You’re majoring in business management because…
Many things can come from a business major. Hopefully it’s the big bucks!

Favorite Central memory
Chip N’ Dales for the lemming race this year

Artist you’d love to see in concert
Iowa has got me in the country mood I'm gonna go with Luke Bryan

Sport you wish you were good at
Golf. Most laid back and relaxing sport!

The best thing about this year’s team
Everyone’s hunger to reach the top. No one will stop till we get there!

Favorite part of practice
Grind days! Wednesdays are just an hour of live. Then we go home. Best day by far

The thing most people don’t know about Coach Eric Van Kley
When he puts wrestling shoes on he is one bad dude!

Person past or present you’d like to have lunch with
My little sister Alexis, I miss that little girl way too much

Word or phrase you use too often
Dude. I say it way too much dude

Food you love to eat but have to avoid during season
Ice cream

If you were on an island, which teammate would you want to be with
I would pick TJ Peretti, I know how to get under his skin and it's quite entertaining. But on a serious note he’s my roommate and we know how to get stuff done when it's needed.

Best advice you’ve ever received from a coach
Never Give Up and love the battle.

Favorite cartoon when you were a kid
Rocket power blows anything out of the water

Why you love Central wrestling
Everyone has bought in this year and is drinking the Kool-aid. We all have the attitude to make some awesome things happen! So keep your eyes open Central fans!

Thing that surprised you most about winter when you got here
The white crap on the ground. It comes down in bunches then stays forever. Not about it dude

Bucket list
Win a national title
Live on the beach in San Diego
Own a Jeep Wrangler
Sky dive
