Episode 22 of Inside Virginia Tech Wrestling again visits with Hokie head wrestling coach Kevin Dresser as we look forward to Thursday's Maroon-Orange scrimmage at Northside High School in Roanoke and the two Hokies competing in the NWCA All-Star Classic on November 1.
The Hokies start the year ranked No. 6 in the preseason USA Today/NWCA Division I Coaches Poll released on October 27. Coach Dresser talks about the pressure in such a lofty ranking and how his staff is handling it.
Dresser will also explain why 157-pounder Nick Brascetta had to pull out of the All-Star Classic. The story is one that's a first in his career and one that should send a shiver across Blacksburg, but in a not-so-serious kind of way.
We'll then center the discussion around the Southeast Regional Training Center and inform Hokie Nation as to what the RTC is designed to do and how you can help contribute to the SERTC.
