Time to talk with another All-American here on Episode 15 of Inside Virginia Tech Wrestling. Christiansburg native Zach Epperly didn't have to go very far to make a college choice. His family lives about 15 minutes away from campus.
Epperly followed older brother Matt to Virginia Tech and in 2014-15, the youngest Epperly finished seventh at the NCAA Division I championships at 174 pounds. It garnered him first-team All-Rookie by Amateur Wrestling News and he's one of two returning All-Americans at the weight behind Oklahoma State's Kyle Crutchmer.
Epperly talks about Ty Walz eating all his food, beating both NCAA finalists this year during the course of the season, wrestling the same guy three times, wrestling the same guy FOUR times and of course, Joey Dance's cat.
