McDaniel returns 7 of 10 starters from a year ago, a season in which they finished 3rd at the Centennial Conference Championships. The team will be led by returning All-American Heavyweight, Brock Glotfelty (JR), who finished 37-4 last season and has his eyes on competing for an individual NCAA Championship this March. Other returning Centennial Conference place winners include junior Brent Lowe (149), a former NAIA National Qualifier who finished 3rd in the Centennial last season.  This year’s roster boasts only two seniors, one of which is Will Yeo. Yeo who finished 4th in the Centennial at 197 is dropping to 184 for the season.  A strong recruiting class will add talent, competition, and depth to the lower weights.
