Some of the top wrestlers from USA Wrestling as well as the national team freestyle coach, Zeke Jones, are in University Park for a Regional Training Center camp hosted by the Nittany Lion Wrestling Club.
Holding the RTC at Penn State benefits both the top-ranked Nittany Lions and USA wrestling. The PSU wrestlers can improve their skills against the best in the country - a "steel sharpens steel" situation according to Penn State head coach Cael Sanderson. For USA wrestling, Jones says he sees future Olympians among the Nittany Lions and wants to instill a technical and tactical system in them early to benefit Team USA in future years.
No. 1 Penn State will resume its dual schedule Saturday when the Nittany Lions host Lock Haven.
