Quotes and Comments from the National Duals through the 3rd session



Bobby Douglas, after Cael Sanderson broke the 30 year consecutive match mark formerly held by Dan Gable. "With Cael what you see is what you get. He is humble, a great citizen and a hard worker.....it's not fair to judge his legacy yet; he is only a junior. We should wait till his collegiate career is over." Matt Azevedo of Iowa State University on his last second takedown on the edge of the mat against Witt Durden of Oklahoma. "I hadn't wrestled him before so I got behind. But I knew I could get the takedown if I had to get it. I always believe there is a way to win." Steve Strellner, Montclair State head coach "It's a thrill to be at a quality meet like this. We are ranked No. 3 in D-3, but we competed hard against Iowa State and UNO." John Trenge, of Lehigh on his upset, of the highly ranked 197 pounder, Mark Munoz, of Oklahoma State University "In my mind I can beat all of the All-Americans.....in their mind I'm just another freshman and I'm not supposed to win." Florian Guinea, returning national champion, of Division III Montclair State, on wrestling in the National Duals against larger schools. "It's just another day of wrestling........they (D-1 schools) are men just like us.....it's just who goes out there and has the best day." J. Robinson, head coach of the University of Minnesota, on the start of the collegiate career of Olympic Bronze medallist and heavyweight, Garrett Lowney. "It's nice to have a closer in the lineup.....he's the kind of wrestler you can count on getting 3, 4, 5, or even 6 points for you in a dual." Cole Sanderson, 157 pound wrestler for Iowa State University, on the record his younger brother Cael set in his first match of the National Duals. "He doesn't talk about it much at all.......but we're (my family) are proud of him. I like to brag about him...but he won't let me." Daniel Cormier, of Oklahoma State, on his approaching bout against Cael Sanderson "I want to wrestle a fast paced hard match against Cael, you always look to beat the guy that's doing the best and right now Cael's that guy.......if I wrestle my match I can beat him." Mark Cody, assistant coach at Oklahoma State "Mark went out and wrestled a little flat and got behind.....he needs to warm-up better and avoid that mistake again."
