Colorado's greatest wrestling upset documented in Unmatched

by | Aug 26, 2020 | Short Time | 0 comments


Brady Buck grew up in the blue collar town of Wray in Eastern Colorado. A wrestler as a youth, he gravitated towards other sports before heading to college at Duke University in North Carolina. He always kept up with wrestling as a fan, but something drew him to tell the story about one of the greatest upsets high school wrestling in the West had ever known.

On Episode 615 of Short Time, Buck talks about chronicling the journey of Brett Roller and his quest to win a state title and stop Tom Clum from becoming the first undefeated four-time state champion in state history. It’s a lot of real life Vision Quest with a tale of two wrestlers who couldn’t be more different and how their careers went in different directions following the match.
