MATT SUPRENANT MAKES IT OFFICIAL AND PLEDGES TO WRESTLE AT WISCONSIN-LACROSSE
He was, by his own admission, pretty rough to watch as a Freshman....
But Matt Suprenant's dues paying more than paid off....with more than 100 career varsity victories at Macomb High and a third place state finish at 182 pounds this year.
Today...the sweetest prize of all....a chance to continue his career for a Division Three Powerhouse in Wisconsin LaCrosse.
"I never really thought that I would continue my career into college, so its pretty special to think about. I've thought about it for a long time and for it to finally be here is great,"
"You can't tell in words what he's meant to the team. He's been a great leader, not just for our program but for programs around the area. He's a personable kid, he helps anybody and everybody. He's made friends throughout the journey of wrestling and its really become a lifestyle for him,"
"We went to a summer camp and Wisconsin-Lacrosse worked at it last year, so I was introduced to their coach and wrestling style and I liked it a lot. I visited their school - it's a nice school, nice town, and it was just a perfect fit for me,"
