Before boarding a plane to Budapest, Hungary, North Dakota State graduate and 2015 NCAA Division I All-American Hayden Zillmer joined The Guillotine Grapevine for Episode 29.
Zillmer has the unique distinction of being the first U.S. wrestler to make the National Team in both freestyle and Greco-Roman since Sam Hazewinkel in 2014. Zillmer was second at the U.S World Team Trials in April in Greco-Roman and third at the U.S. World Team Trials in freestyle last week in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Zillmer has sprouted up since his days in Fargo winning national titles at 84 pounds. Zillmer most recently checked in at the 97kg weight class — 213 pounds!
We'll see what he's got to say about fishing in Crosby and winters in Fargo.
