North Carolina's Troy Heilmann was highly regarded coming out of New Jersey's South Plainfield High School. A three-time state finalist and four-time placewinner, he chose to compete at North Carolina for then coach C.D. Mock and head assistant Cary Kolat.
On Episode 423 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, Heilmann talks about the journey from a middling middleweight at North Carolina to All-American, earning a fourth-place finish in his final trip to the NCAA Division I Championships. The senior talks about the coaching change and how he bought into Coleman Scott's attitude and how he jumped from a .500 record to the podium.
