Washington native Conner Hartmann became just the second All-American in Duke wrestling history after finishing fifth at 197 pounds at the 2014 NCAA Division I Championships in Oklahoma City.

Hartmann also holds the distinction of being the highest placing unseeded wrestler in the event, which became even more notable because the tournament expanded seeding to 16 wrestlers per weight.

Short Time's Jason Bryant talks with Hartmann about how he ended up at Duke, his run through the NCAA championships and how a tough weight class within the ACC prepared him for the postseason.

Hartmann also addresses the question about his 2012-13 haircut, a red mullet. The red part was natural, but the hairstyle, not so much. We also find out whether or not Hartmann has adopted the savory southern cuisine in North Carolina.
