You probably wonder why the Minnesota Gophers are featured here so often. A couple simple reasons: The Wisconsin Badgers do not promote their team or wrestlers at all like the Gophers do. Minnesota is one of very few that provide these videos and blogs on a weekly basis. I enjoy the Gopher style of wrestling. They are very aggressive and hard working. They make watching wrestling fun. (Oklahoma State is the same)
I have had the opportunity to attend camps and clinics at Minnesota, met their coaches and wrestlers, and over the years have had the following as clinicians or speakers at Sparta and our Leadership Camp: LeRoy Vega (3 times), Luke Becker, Tim Hartung (2 times), Brandon Eggum, Jared Lawrence, Mack Reiter, and others. They have all been very well spoken and presented messages about leadership and finding success in life through goal setting and hard work. WE have had wrestlers over the years attend J Robinson’s camps and come back much better wrestlers, on and off the mat. The Gophers are Big 10 Dual Champions this year also.
