With the college wrestling season here, we'll head to Laramie and talk with Wyoming head wrestling coach Mark Branch. As a competitor at Oklahoma State, Branch has the unique distinction of winning the NCAA Division I title as a freshman and coming into the tournament with a losing record.
Branch talks about the legacy his family had in Stillwater, what role basketball had in that legacy, what it was like wrestling for John Smith early in his coaching career and some of the things that went along with his 1-2-2-1 placements at the NCAA Championships.
We'll also dive into what make Wyoming the right choice for Branch 11 years ago when he applied for the head coaching job of wrestling's other Division I Cowboys.
