Article about Hawkeye Wrestling Club All-American

Anyone remember an article posted on here in a few parts maybe seven to ten years ago? It was written by a former Hawkeye wrestling club wrestler who had a mostly non-descript career in college but went on to All-American as a member of HWC (back in the '90's?). He told a story of how he had to scrape by while training with what he called the best room and how it made him better and helped him achieve his goal of being an All-American...?

Sound familiar?

Asking for a friend... he said he originally read it on here but can't remember the name of the wrestler who wrote the article about his own experience. He wants to use it as part of a work conference he's headed to but can't find the thing or remember enough details to search for it adequately.

Any help or suggestion appreciated.

Based on everything I was told, it certainly appears that this is what he was after... I'll confirm with him later.

Many thanks!

The folks on here never cease to amaze me.
