Building a National Program The Eagles have excelled over the last eight seasons, earning 16 All-Americans and crowning the program’s lone national champion in 2007 when Josh Glenn ‘08 claimed the 197 lbs. title. Beyond the mat, 25 student-athletes have earned Academic All-America status since 2005, including American’s five honorees last season. AU has also been named the NWCA Champions of the Classroom twice (2008 and 2009).

Three of Name Year American’s five placewinners were Mark Cody 2009 appearing in the championships for the first time. Four of the grapplers who made the podium did so for the first time in their career as well, including NCAA qualifiers Herrin and Terao. The Eagles return seven of its starters next year.

Following in Impressive Footsteps Herrin has stepped into the spotlight as American’s heavyweight after backing up four-time NCAA qualifier, two-time EIWA Champion and two-time All-American Ryan Flores ’12. The redshirt junior has certainly followed in the footsteps of his predecessor, advancing to the finals of the EIWA Championships and leading American in winning percentage this year. Herrin will also look to match Flores’s success in his first year at the Big Show with the Eagles, where he became the national heavyweight runner-up.
