The Mat Talk Podcast Network will launch a year-long series about the start of Little Rock's Division I wrestling program later this winter. During a trip to Little Rock to collect interviews for the series, we sat down with freshman Conner Ward, a Kansas native who is the only wrestler that's currently a part of the program.

We'll talk with Ward about what it's like to be the only guy “on the team” even though there isn't officially a team yet and what it's like to be the first building block to a new Division I program.

Ward's story will be chronicled later on in 2019 with the launch of the Little Rock show, but this episode of Short Time is the raw interview as I sat down with Ward at the Arkansas Wrestling Academy on December 17, 2018.
