Head Coach

TimFlynn 12th Year Penn State ‘86

m

ike DeAnna, Bruce Baumgartner, and now Tim Flynn. Edinboro University has been blessed with outstanding wrestling coaches since elevating the program to Division I status in the mid-80's. Flynn enters his 12th season in charge of the Fighting Scot wrestlers, and prior to that he served as an assistant coach under Baumgartner for five years. The former Penn State All-American has produced quite a legacy in his eleven seasons at the helm. Edinboro has dominated eastern wrestling circles during Flynn's reign, winning the Eastern Wrestling League Championship the last six years and ten of the last eleven years, along with the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Tournament title nine times in the last eleven campaigns. In addition, Edinboro at one point last year had won 34 of its last 35 dual matches, and has a current streak of 41 wins in the last 45 dual matches. Finally, the Fighting Scots have run off 19 straight EWL dual meet wins, with three straight undefeated seasons. Now Flynn is working his magic nationally, as well. He has guided two of his last three editions to two of the most dominant campaigns in Edinboro history. The 2005-06 Fighting Scots finished with a perfect 12-0 record, the only Division I team in the country to go undefeated. They dominated the PSAC Championships, as nine wrestlers reached the finals and six earned championships, both PSAC records. Next came the EWL Tournament, where despite just two wrestlers capturing first place, nine earned a trip to Nationals, as Edinboro outdistanced West Virginia for its fourth straight EWL crown. Flynn would later be named the EWL Coach of the Year for the fourth time. Finally came a memorable three-day stay in Oklahoma City, OK. Edinboro departed the NCAA Division I National Championships with three All-Americans and an eighth place finish,

Page 2

the highest since the 1997 team finished sixth, and the third-highest finish ever. The three AllAmericans were the most since 2000. The 2006-07 team came back with the second straight top ten finish at Nationals, finishing ninth. The Fighting Scots once again had three All-Americans, including the program’s third national champion, and second under Flynn, as Gregor Gillespie brought home the title at 149 lbs. Edinboro ended the year with a 17-1 record, a school record for wins, and finished the regular season ranked sixth, the highest in school history. The lone loss came to eighthranked Penn State, and the Scots avenged that loss with a 19-17 victory later in the season to finish first in the Virginia Duals. The Fighting Scots once again won the PSAC Championship, as all ten wrestlers earned All-PSAC honors with at least a third place finish, including five champions. Three grapplers came away with first place finishes at the EWL Tournament, and eight qualified for Nationals. Flynn was later named the PSAC Coach of the Year for the sixth time. The 2007-08 Edinboro edition appeared primed for a third straight top ten finish as all ten wrestlers qualified for Nationals. But the Fighting Scots had a rough showing at Nationals, finishing in a tie for 21st. One of the few bright spots was Gregor Gillespie placing fifth at 157 lbs. to earn All-American honors for the third time. In addition, Edinboro dominated the EWL Tournament and PSAC Championships, with Flynn being named the PSAC Coach of the Year for the seventh time. Edinboro tied the PSAC record with seven individual champions. In 2005, The Fighting Scots finished 28th at Nationals, the first time that Edinboro had not finished in the top 25 during Flynn’s tenure. However, the Fighting Scots could still take solace in Shawn Bunch’s second place finish at 133 lbs. He became just the sixth Boro grappler to earn a runner-up spot. Edinboro previously recorded a 12th place finish in 2001 and a 14th place finish in 2002 under Flynn, plus a pair of 15th place finishes. Edinboro has a 122-35-3 record in dual matches under Flynn, leaving him 13 wins shy of the school record. During that period he has produced 21 All-Americans and 89 national qualifiers, capped by Josh Koscheck's national championship at 174 lbs. in 2001 and Gillespie’s two years ago. Koscheck became Edinboro's second all-time national champion at the Division I level, and with a third place finish in 2002, became Edinboro's first four-time All-American.

In 2004-05, Flynn took a young and inexperienced lineup, and one which would battle injuries throughout the year, and led it to a 9-51 record. It would have been easy to use the inexperience and injuries as an excuse, particularly when the Fighting Scots failed to win their fourth straight PSAC title. Instead, Flynn rallied his grapplers to a resounding first place finish at the EWL Tournament. Bunch was the lone individual champion, but six Fighting Scots qualified for Nationals. Flynn was recognized as the PSAC Coach of the Year in 2004 after guiding Edinboro to a 10-3 finish and a third straight PSAC title. In 2003 he was named both the EWL and PSAC Coach of the Year. The 2003-04 Fighting Scot edition matured as the year went on, easily capturing the PSAC crown as five grapplers brought home individual titles, one shy of the school record. Just over a month later the Fighting Scots rallied from six points down entering the final session to tie West Virginia for the EWL championship. A record-tying four Scots were crowned champions, with six Edinboro wrestlers qualifying for Nationals. Edinboro also won the EWL dual meet title for the fourth time in six seasons, unseating West Virginia with a 25-13 upset of the Mountaineers in Morgantown and ending WVU's 19-match EWL winning streak. The Fighting Scots posted a perfect 7-0 record in EWL competition. A youthful Edinboro squad surprised the

experts by finishing with a 10-5 record in 2003, winning both the EWL and PSAC Championships. The Scots only finished third during the EWL dual meet season, but thanks to four first place finishes and all ten wrestlers placing no lower than fourth, Edinboro outdistanced West Virginia to reclaim the EWL Tournament crown from the Mountaineers. The PSAC Championship featured four individual champions. Matt King went on to place fourth at 165 lbs. at Nationals, with eight Scots qualifying for Nationals. The Fighting Scots posted a 10-4 ledger the year before, extending their EWL unbeaten streak to 25 straight matches before an injuryravaged team suffered a loss at Lock Haven. The Boro edged Lock Haven in the PSAC Championships, and later went on to finish second to West Virginia at the EWL Tournament. Seven Fighting Scots qualified for Nationals at EWLs, with Koscheck and Cory Ace going on to earn All-American status at Nationals. Ace finished eighth at 133 lbs. Edinboro finished with an 11-3-1 record in 2001, concluding the campaign with an EWL unbeaten streak of 22 matches. The streak was interrupted by a 16-16 tie with Virginia Tech early in the season, but Edinboro went on to finish as the regular season EWL champion for the sixth time in the last eight years, including the last three seasons. The Scots were 210-1 during their 22-match unbeaten streak. Edinboro then easily outdistanced Lock Haven at the EWL Championships. To top it off, a record-tying nine Fighting Scots qualified for Nationals, helping the Boro finish with an all-time high point total in Iowa City, IA. The 12th place finish led all eastern schools, and was the highest finish by an Edinboro squad since the 1996-97 squad finished sixth. Flynn was recognized as the EWL Coach of the Year following the 2001 season. Flynn came to Edinboro following three seasons as a graduate assistant coach at his alma mater, Penn State. In his first season as head coach the Fighting Scots were only 7-7 in dual matches, but went on to win the PSAC Championship and the EWL Championship. It marked the first-ever EWL crown for Edinboro. With a record nine wrestlers going to Nationals, the Boro placed 15th at Nationals. In 1998-99, the Fighting Scots closed out the season with eight straight wins to finish at 11-3-1. For the second year in a row they captured the PSAC and EWL crowns, with eight Scots heading to Penn State for the NCAA Tournament. Edinboro finished 18th among the 79-team field. Flynn was recognized as the EWL Coach of the Year thanks to a perfect 7-0 league mark. Edinboro's unbeaten dual match streak reached 19 in 1999-2000 before Central Michigan handed the Scots an 18-15 defeat. It would be the only setback that year, as Flynn's third team went 14-1. That included a first-ever win over Penn State by a 19-14 count in State

College. Edinboro had lost its previous eight meetings with the Nittany Lions. In addition, the Scots took first place at the prestigious Virginia Duals. The Scots would win their third straight PSAC and EWL titles, with Flynn recognized as the PSAC Coach of the Year for the third straight year. He was also honored as Edinboro's Coach of the Year in 1999-2000. Eight more wrestlers headed to Nationals, securing a 15th place finish for the Scots. Joining the program as an assistant coach prior to the start of the 1992-93 season, Flynn assisted Baumgartner to a 56-21 record during his five year period as an aide, including a perfect 14-0 dual match record and a 6th place finish at Nationals, the best in school history, in '95-96. The Scots won three out of four EWL dual meet championships from 1994-97, with perfect 6-0 records each year, and claimed just the second PSAC Championship in school history in 1994-95. Following three standout seasons at Vista High School in Vista, CA, Flynn moved east to finish his prep career at Annapolis Senior High School in Annapolis, MD. He went on to enjoy a stellar career at Penn State, captaining the 1986-87 squad while earning All-American honors at 134 pounds. He went 30-10-1 as a senior, winning the EWL title and finishing seventh at Nationals. The Nittany Lions enjoyed one of their greatest seasons ever with an 18-1-1 record and a third place finish at the NCAA Tournament. Flynn finished with a 105-32-2 record, still ranking among the all-time career leaders in victories for the Nittany Lions. He also won the EWL title as a junior in 1986 while competing at 126 pounds, finishing with a 30-7-1 mark. He qualified for Nationals as a sophomore as well after finishing second at the EWL Championships. He was four-time Midlands Championships place winner, a two-time Mat Town USA champion, and was an Espoir National freestyle runner-up in 1984. Flynn graduated from Penn State in 1987 with a bachelor's degree in Business Management. He later earned his master's degree in Business

He has never been one to shy away from some of the best programs in the country, but even he admitted with a grin that “I may have overdone it”. “It’s real challenging,” he understated. “We start off with Maryland, who is a top twenty program. Then we’ll see Oklahoma, Hofstra, central Michigan and Kent State the following week. After that, we face Penn State, who is in the top ten, and Boise State, a top 15 program. We’ll see Oklahoma State and Central Michigan, again, among others in Reno, then go to the Southern Scuffle. We have a chance to meet Oklahoma State again in the Virginia Duals. “The kids will see some really good wrestlers before we get into the EWL portion of our schedule. The purpose of our schedule is so kids are prepared at the end of the year.” The season gets underway on Saturday, November 1 when Edinboro hosts the Fighting Scot ricky Deubel enters his senior season with 74 career Duals, meeting Findlay, Army and wins. He will hold down the starting job at 133 lbs. Maryland.

Here’s a look at the Fighting Scots, weight class by weight class:

} 125 lbs. Eric Morrill enjoyed an outstanding sophomore season, posting a 20-11 record and earning his first trip to Nationals with a second place finish at the EWL Tournament. He posted a 2-2 record at Nationals. Morrill, however, will likely redshirt, leaving a potentially huge whole in the lineup. “The smart thing would be to redshirt Eric,” admitted Flynn. “He’s getting bigger and may also move up to 133 lbs. next year” Of course, should all go well for Paul Donahoe, this weight class could be one of the strengths of the team. “If all goes as planned Paul will be with us the second semester,” Flynn commented. “Right now he needs to work on his school work. He’s a great wrestler, and a great worker.” Donahoe had a 25-4 record a year ago while competing for Nebraska. He placed third at Nationals thanks to a 6-3 decision over Mark McKnight of Penn State in the third place match. In 2007 Donahoe was the national champion at 125 lbs. He has an 86-18 career record. In the meantime, Flynn looks for a trio of wrestlers to step up and fill in. Senior Greg Sill was actually thrown into the starting lineup as a true freshman. He has seen limited action since then, with a 4-7 record a year ago. Kyle Fluke moves down from 133 lbs. The junior has enjoyed some success in the past, including 13-6 a year ago. But Flynn sees the chance for even greater numbers. “We’re real interested to see how Kyle does. Hopefully he’ll rededicate himself to the sport. I think he’ll get a lot more wins.” Michael Bunn is a redshirt freshman who was 2-5 a year ago in open events. “I thought we were good before at this weight, now we can be great,” Flynn summarized.

} 133 lbs. Ricky Deubel has been an enigma at 133 lbs. He owns 74 career wins, with 20-or-more wins in each of his three seasons, and has posted some very big wins. But he has struggled at the EWL’s, and has just one win in two trips to Nationals. A year ago Deubel was 26-14 with a third place finish at the EWL Tournament. He won his second PSAC crown and picked up a seventh place finish at the Southern Scuffle. “Hopefully he’s hungry,” related Flynn. “He’s had some ups and downs in the postseason, but he has matured. When he wrestles his best he can compete with anyone. With the 125 lb. weight class inexperienced, we need Ricky to man-up. He has to keep his work

2008-09 Season Preview

ethic, but he has the talent.” Aaron Ely is in reserve, but the redshirt freshman won’t be eligible until the second semester. He was 7-5 in open tournaments, and Flynn feels he has a lot of potential.

} 141 lbs. Torsten Gillespie enjoyed a solid true freshman campaign, and got hot late to earn a trip to Nationals. He might have done even better, but his season was interrupted for a month due to a broken finger suffered in the Southern Scuffle. As it was, he posted a 19-18 record. He earned his trip to Nationals thanks to a second place finish in the EWL Tournament. He turned in a strong showing at the Southern Scuffle, finishing eighth despite wrestling several matches with the broken finger. The younger brother of Gregor Gillespie, Torsten may follow in his brother’s footsteps and move up a weight class to 149 lbs. “This weight class is really up in the air,” Flynn admitted. “Torsten’s gotten a little bigger. We’ll certify him at 141 lbs. and see if he is there or moves up. He was a national qualifier a year ago and is going to get better.” Should Gillespie move up, Flynn mentioned several wrestlers who will compete for the spot, led by Ryan Morgan, Kory Bissett and Joel Webster. Morgan is a senior who has the advantage of experience. He filled in for Gillespie a year ago when he was out with the injury. Morgan was 7-9. Bissett went 8-9 in open tournaments, and is a former two-time PIAA placewinner. Webster did not wrestle a year ago, but in 200607 he was 12-9 and took third place at the PSAC Championships. “Those are three pretty solid kids,” pointed out Flynn. “They will battle it out if Torsten moves up.” Redshirt freshman Tom Wipfli, sophomore Zach Ritrosky and freshman Jeff Brigham look to add depth to the competition. “We have some young kids at this weight,” assessed Flynn. “Someone has to step up. The nice thing is, there’s an opportunity there for somebody.”

} 149 lbs. Daryl Coccozo, a two-time national qualifier, is no longer enrolled at Edinboro, and impressive transfer Garrett Scott will redshirt this season. The weight will be in good hands if Torsten Gillespie moves up from 141 lbs. Should Gillespie remain at 141 lbs., the picture gets a little cloudier. Flynn mentioned Mike Otero or Joe Bockmore, returnees who have seen limited action. Bockmore, a junior, was 11-8 last year while competing at both 141 and 149 lbs. Otero was 1-6 while redshirting. “Joe Bockmore has been in the room awhile and has improved,” commented Flynn. “ We may very well see someone else move up from 141 lbs.”

} 157 lbs. Gregor Gillespie returns seeking to join Josh Koscheck as Edinboro’s lone four-time All-American. Gillespie placed seventh at 149 lbs. as a freshman, then won the national championship at that weight

class in 2007. He moved up to 157 lbs. a year ago and entered Nationals as the number one seed. He would go on to lose twice while competing in a brutal weight class, bringing home fifth place. While finishing with a 37-4 record, Gillespie became just the sixth Fighting Scot grappler to earn All-American honors at least three times. He has a 111-10 career record, good for a tie for 15th in career wins. He had an NCAA Division I-high 16 wins by technical fall in 2007-08. Gillespie would like to conclude his career by becoming Edinboro’s first two-time national champion. He’ll have his work cut out for him with many of the same wrestlers returning this year, but Flynn wouldn’t put it past him. “Gregor is pretty focused to win the national championship,” related Flynn. “It’s a real good weight class, but I think he’s up to the challenge. I wouldn’t bet against him. He’s pretty focused to win his second national championship.” Ricky Saxton is in reserve, although he won’t be available until the second semester. The sophomore was 1-3 last year, and Flynn sees him as a solid backup.

} 165 lbs. A healthy Jarrod King returns, maybe something that couldn’t have been said for several years. King transferred to Edinboro from Oklahoma a year ago and was coming off shoulder surgery. He enjoyed a strong first season with the Fighting Scots, finishing with a 32-9 record. He won both the EWL and PSAC titles, along with finishing third in the Southern Scuffle and sixth in the Las Vegas Invitational. In his first trip to Nationals he finished 2-2, losing by riding time to Purdue’s Luke Manuel in his final match. Flynn looks for even bigger things this year, and expects him to compete for a national championship. “Jarrod looks real good,” Flynn pointed out. “He has a year under his belt. That was his first full year of wrestling in several years. I think you’ll see a marked improvement. I look for him to have a great year.” Several younger wrestlers are in reserve. Redshirt freshman Matt Coleman was 4-9 while competing in open tournaments. “Matt had a good first year,” noted Flynn. “He got physically more mature and he could even move up to 174 lbs. We’re anxious to see him compete.” Chris Hrunka is a redshirt freshman in his first year with the Fighting Scots. “We like him a lot,” Flynn commented. “He wrestles hard. He’ll be solid.” Sophomore Dan Snyder and freshman D.J. Zarfos are also in the mix.

} 174 lbs. Phil Moricone was another one of the Edinboro wrestlers who struggled at Nationals. Flynn feels that will serve as a motivating factor this year. The senior was 24-13 last year and owns a 56-26 record while serving as the starter for two years. But after going 2-2 at Nationals the year

before, he lost both of his bouts this time around. Moricone earned his second trip to Nationals with a third place finish at the EWL Tournament. He won his second straight PSAC title, along with a sixth place finish at the Southern Scuffle. His most impressive performance likely came in Las Vegas, with a fourth place finish in the Las Vegas Invitational. “Phil is pretty hungry,” stressed Flynn. “He had a disappointing NCAA Tournament. I think he’s figured out some things with his wrestling. Physically he can compete with any of those kids.” Waiting in the wings is impressive redshirt freshman Paul Paddock, a two-time New York state champion who was a blue-chip recruit a year ago. Paddock was 15-6 last year in open events while competing at 165 lbs. That included a first place finish at the Michigan State Open in the freshman and sophomore division. Paddock may also end up moving to 184 lbs. “Paul will be really good,” predicted Flynn. “He took some lumps from (Jarrod) King and (Phil) Moricone in the room last year and will be better for it. We’re not sure what weight he’ll be at, but I expect big things. He’ll be noticed this year and in the years to come.”

} 184 lbs. Chris Honeycutt, another of the blue-chip recruits to join the Boro a year ago, lived up to expectations. Honeycutt came in as a two-time Ohio state champion. He didn’t capture the starting role until a strong showing in the Southern Scuffle, but he made up for it by earning a trip to Nationals. Honeycutt finished with a 26-10 record with 4 falls, and picked up a win at Nationals. He placed second at the EWL Tournament, dropping a 10-8 decision to West Virginia’s Kurt Brenner. The sophomore made everyone sit up and take notice at the Southern Scuffle with a third place finish. He ran off six straight wins to conclude the tourney, two over nationally-ranked wrestlers. He was a fixture in the lineup after that. “Chris had a really solid freshman year,” Flynn commented. “He knows he can compete at the highest level. He’ll be real solid.” Paddock may well be at 184 lbs. to battle Honeycutt, and improving sophomore Shawn Fendone is also available. The younger brother of heavyweight Joey Fendone, Shawn was 5-6 last year. “Shawn has really picked up his work ethic. He has matured physically and mentally,” stressed Flynn. “We’re real pleased with his work this year.”

Invitational. “Pat got a little bit more physically mature during the summer,” assessed Flynn. “He built himself up. He had a really good year. Now in his second year I think you’ll notice big steps. He will be a real solid guy. I think he’s ready to take the next step.” Freshman Vince Corden is the best bet to backup Bradshaw. Ken Massey, a redshirt freshman, is also available.

} Hwt. Two years ago, Joey Fendone came within one win of earning All-American honors. This past year he suffered an ankle injury the very first weekend and battled it the rest of the year. He made it to Nationals for the third straight year, but went 1-2 this around. For the second straight year he drew the number two seed in his second match, this time dropping a 6-3 decision to Ohio State’s J.D. Bergman. Fendone finished the year with an 18-11 record and 6 falls. He placed third at the EWL Tournament in a strong heavyweight field, along with a third place finish at the PSAC’s. He placed fifth at the Southern Scuffle. Fendone was battletested a year ago, facing nine ranked wrestlers. “Joe has been real close,” admitted Flynn. “He’s kind of like the rest of our starters. He’s healthy now, and bigger and stronger. I think he’s going to have a great year. We have some younger kids in the room who will push him.” One heavyweight who won’t push him this year is Terry Tate, who left the mats to join the football team. Flynn stocked up on heavyweights, though, led by Mike Horton. The former Philipsburg-Osceola High School standout captured fifth place at the PIAA state championships as a senior. “He’s a big kid who can move well,” noted Flynn. “He may redshirt this year. He has a lot of potential.”

} 197 lbs. Pat Bradshaw earned a trip to Nationals in his first year as a starter. The junior ended the year with 29-13 record after losing both of his matches at Nationals. He should be even better this year after joining his father Jeff as a PSAC champion, and also placing fourth at the Michigan State Open, fifth at the Southern Scuffle, and sixth at the Las Vegas

Edinboro Wrestling 2008-09

2007-08 Year in review Fighting Scots Win Tenth EWl Crown in Eleven Years but Struggle at Nationals Success means not being satisfied with just winning. It means

greater expectations and bigger disappointments. The 2007-08 Edinboro wrestling team seemed on the verge of posting the third straight top ten finish at Nationals for the Fighting Scots. Everything was in place. The Fighting Scots were coming off their tenth EWL Tournament title in the last eleven years, and with a schoolrecord ten wrestlers qualifying for Nationals, things were certainly looking up for head coach Tim Flynn. But after an eighth place finish in 2006, and a ninth place showing in 2007, the Fighting Scots suffered through a discouraging three days in St. Louis. Edinboro finished tied for 21st and had just one All-American. As we said, expectations continue to get higher each year. Gregor Gillespie departed St. Louis with his third All-American certificate, but the junior arrived with much bigger goals. After winning the 149 lb. national championship the year before, he hoped to become Edinboro’s first two-time national champion. He came into Nationals seeded number one, just the fourth Fighting Scot to hold such a lofty position. The others were Jason Robison, Josh Koscheck and Shawn Bunch. Gillespie certainly looked ready to defend his crown after opening the tournament with a 17-0 technical fall over Navy’s Spencer Manley, followed by a 6-0 decision against Jason Johnstone of Ohio State. However, in the quarterfinals Gillespie ran up against Jordan Leen of Cornell, the eighth seed and a wrestler he had defeated the year before in the 149 lb. quarterfinals, 6-2. This time around Leen upset Gillespie, 8-6, and would eventually win the national championship. The loss left Gillespie in the wrestlebacks and facing a familiar foe in the Round of 12 with All-American status on the line. He prevailed over EWL rival Matt Kocher of Pittsburgh, the sixth seed, by a 1-0 decision, to assure himself of All-American status for the third straight year. Next came a win by fall just 40 seconds into the match against the seventh seed, Cyler Sanderson of Iowa State. In the consolation semifinals Gillespie suffered a 2-1 loss to Penn State’s Dan Vallimont, who came in as the number three seed. The year

before Gillespie won a 10-2 major decision over Vallimont at Nationals. Gillespie ended on a high note with a technical fall over Josh Zupancic of Stanford, winning 15-0 at 4:44 over the 12th seed. He became Edinboro’s sixth wrestler to earn All-American honors at least three times. He was 37-4 for the season. Jarrod King was Edinboro’s only other seeded wrestler. The 12th seed at 165 lbs., the former transfer from Oklahoma went 2-2 in his first trip to Nationals. He was eliminated via a heart-breaking 4-3 loss in a tiebreaker to Luke Manuel of Purdue. The bout was ultimately decided by riding time. Eric Morrill was the only other Fighting Scot to win two matches. In his first trip to Nationals while competing at 125 lbs., he also went 2-2, eliminated by a 7-3 decision to Penn State’s Mark McKnight.

Boro Sweeps PSaC Postseason Honors Edinboro swept the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference postseason wrestling awards. Gregor Gillespie repeated as the Wrestler of the Year, while Chris Honeycutt was named the Rookie of the Year. Head coach Tim Flynn was voted the Coach of the Year by his peers for the second straight year and seventh time overall. Gillespie became the fourth Edinboro wrestler to win the PSAC Wrestler of the Year award more than once. Josh Koscheck was a three-time honoree, while Matt King and Shawn Bunch won the award twice. Gillespie was previously recognized as the PSAC Rookie of the Year in 2006. He finished the year with a 37-4 record and placed fifth at Nationals. He won his second PSAC championship and was named the PSAC Championships’ Outstanding Wrestler. Later in the year he captured his third straight EWL crown and was once again recognized as the Outstanding Wrestler. Honeycutt was named both the EWL and PSAC Rookie of the Year. Part of an outstanding group of freshmen, he did not disappoint, although it did take him a little time to crack the lineup. He emerged in late December with a strong showing at the Southern Scuffle, capturing third place at 184 lbs. From then on Honeycutt was in the lineup, finishing with a 26-10 record with four falls and six major decisions. He earned a trip to Nationals as a true freshman with a second place finish at the EWL Tournament. Honeycutt went 1-2 at Nationals. Flynn led Edinboro to an 11-3 finish this year, including a perfect 6-0 EWL record. It marked the third straight year that the Fighting Scots finished undefeated in EWL dual meet competition. Edinboro won its third straight PSAC championship and ninth in the last eleven years in December, then went on to capture its sixth consecutive EWL Tournament and tenth in the last eleven years. Edinboro qualified a school-record ten wrestlers for Nationals and finished 21st. Flynn has now been named the PSAC Coach of the Year seven times in his 11-year tenure as the Fighting Scots’ head coach, including three of the last five years.

Torsten gillespie Named to NWCa Division i True Freshman all-academic Team Torsten Gillespie was named to the National Wrestling Coaches Association Division I True Freshman All-Academic Team. In the past the NWCA has announced All-Academic teams in Division I, II, III and the NAIA. This marks the first time that a Division I true freshman team has been selected. Gillespie was one of five wrestlers to meet the Division I criteria, which included maintaining a cumulative GPA of 3.2 or better, be an NCAA qualifier or win 60 percent of his total schedule. Gillespie had a 3.63 GPA as a Computer Science major. He earned a trip to the NCAA Division I Championships thanks to a second place finish at the EWL Tournament at 141 lbs. He finished with a 19-18 record, losing both of his matches at Nationals. He picked up a fourth place finish at the PSAC Championships and turned in a strong showing at the Southern Scuffle, bringing home eighth place.

Chris Honeycutt was named the EWl and PSaC rookie of the Year after finishing with a 26-10 record.

total of 13 technical falls led all three divisions. The figures only took into account regular season results and did not include postseason competition. Gillespie finished with a 37-4 record.

Edinboro Wins Sixth Straight EWl Crown as gregor gillespie is Named the outstanding Wrestler Edinboro captured its sixth straight Eastern Wrestling League championship and tenth in the last eleven years, outdistancing second place Pittsburgh to capture the 33rd Annual EWL Tournament. The event was held at Pittsburgh’s Fitzgerald Field House. Edinboro finished with 133 points, while the Panthers totaled 111.5 points. A total of ten Fighting Scots qualified for the NCAA Division I National Championships. That’s a new school record, breaking the standard of nine set in 1998 and 2006. Edinboro sent six wrestlers to the finals, with three finishing first. In addition to the three second place finishers, the other four Fighting Scots garnered third place. Leading the way for the Fighting Scots was Gregor Gillespie, who captured his third straight EWL title and was named the Outstanding Wrestler. The junior came in ranked number one at 157 lb. by InterMat, but had to overcome a star-studded field for title number three. In the semifinals he won a 5-2 decision over eighth-ranked Matt Kocher of Pittsburgh. That was followed by a 7-2 decision over Bloomsburg’s Matt Moley, who was ranked 19th. Edinboro also brought home the title at 149 lbs., Gillespie’s former weight, as Daryl Cocozzo won three matches to pick up his first EWL crown. The sophomore was a 4-2 winner over West Virginia’s David Jauregui in the championship match. Jarrod King joined his brother Matt as an EWL champion, taking home the title at 165 lbs. Matt won two championships at that weight class. The transfer from Oklahoma won a 9-5 decision over West Virginia’s Donnie Jones in the championship bout. Eric Morrill fell just shy of posting an upset over seventh-ranked Mike Sees of Bloomsburg in the 125 lb. final. Sees held off the sophomore, 8-7, but Morrill still earned his first trip to Nationals. A pair of true freshmen also lost in the finals. Torsten Gillespie dropped a 5-1 decision to Pittsburgh’s Drew Headlee at 141 lbs., and Chris Honeycutt was a 10-8 loser to West Virginia’s Eric Brenner at 184 lbs. Ricky Deubel (133 lbs.), Phil Moricone (174 lbs.), Pat Bradshaw (197 lbs.), and Joey Fendone (hwt.) all finished third and earned a trip to St. Louis.

gillespie reaches 100 Career Wins Gregor Gillespie became the 20th Fighting Scot to reach 100 career wins. The junior won his 100th match with a 6-1 decision over Ohio State’s Jason Johnstone on February 14. He would end his junior campaign with a 111-10 career ledger, ranking 15th in career wins.

Bradshaw’s Become Father-Son PSaC Champion Combo In 1977 Jeff Bradshaw captured the PSAC championship at 177 lbs., and a year later he brought home the 190 lb. title. His son Pat joined him as a PSAC champion at the 2007 PSAC Championships at Clarion. Pat picked up the title at 197 lbs. He won all three of his matches, including a 5-1 decision over Lock Haven’s Ben Hepburn in the finals, to join his father as a PSAC champion.

Fighting Scots add to Brother Combos as PSaC Champs Edinboro can claim two brother combinations as PSAC champions in recent years. Ryan and Shaun Shapert came away with PSAC titles in 1999. In 2007 Jarrod King joined his brother, Matt, a three-time PSAC title winner, as a champion. In fact, both won their titles at 165 lbs. Jarrod, a transfer from Oklahoma in his first season as a Fighting Scot, was a 16-6 winner over Landis Wright of Lock Haven in the finals. Matt King won PSAC crowns while competing at that weight class in 2002, ‘03 and ‘04.

Edinboro Wins Third Straight PSaC Crown as recordTying Seven Scots Win Titles The Fighting Scots won their third straight PSAC Championship and ninth in the last eleven years on December 8 at Clarion, PA. Edinboro finished with 152.5 points, while Bloomsburg was a distant second with 118.5 points. A total of seven Fighting Scots won PSAC titles, and nine wrestlers earned All-PSAC honors. The seven champions is a new school record and ties the PSAC record previously set by Clarion. The seven champions were -- Ricky Deubel (133 lbs.), Daryl Cocozzo (149 lbs.), Gregor Gillespie (157 lbs.), Jarrod King (165 lbs.), Phil Moricone (174 lbs.), Dan Thompson (184 lbs.), and Pat Bradshaw (197 lbs.). Gillespie was named the Tournament’s Outstanding Wrestler.

Scots impressive at War at the Shore 3 The War at the Shore 3 proved a huge success for Erie-area wrestling fans. Over 1,800 fans watched the event at the Erie Civic Center, capped by collegiate matches between Edinboro and Eastern Michigan and local rivals Gannon and Mercyhurst. While Gannon was coming up with a fall in the final match to win by a point over Mercyhurst, the Fighting Scots posted an impressive win over the Eagles. Edinboro’s 31-6 victory featured eight wins in ten bouts, with a technical fall and four major decisions. It was Edinboro’s 16th straight dual meet win and 34th in the last 35 matches.

Eight grapplers Place at Southern Scuffle as Fighting Scots Finish Second After back-to-back fourth place finishes at the Southern Scuffle, Edinboro jumped up two notches to finish second. Minnesota came in first with 182 points, while Edinboro was second with 130.5. A total of eight Fighting Scots placed, led by Gregor Gillespie’s second place finish at 157 lbs. Gillespie was dominant through his first four matches, winning three by technical fall and one by major decision. He suffered a 5-2 loss to Minnesota’s C.P. Schlatter in the finals. Jarrod King and Chris Honeycutt brought home third place at 165 and 184 lbs., respectively. Honeycutt was particularly impressive, since he came in as Edinboro’s backup, and went 81, winning a grueling six matches in the wrestlebacks. Along the way the true freshman defeated the second, third and fifth seeds. Pat Bradshaw came in fifth at 197 lbs., as was Joey Fendone at heavyweight, Phil Moricone was sixth at 174 lbs., Ricky Deubel was seventh at 133 lbs., and Torsten Gillespie, another true freshman, was eighth at 141 lbs.

Four Scots Place at las Vegas invitational Thanks to four placewinners, Edinboro finished seventh in the 50-team field at the 26th Annual Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational. Leading the way was Gregor Gillespie, who brought home second place at 157 lbs. The junior entered as the top-ranked wrestler in that weight class, but dropped a 4-3 decision to Mike Poeta of Illinois, who was ranked third, in the title match. Phil Moricone placed fourth at 174 lbs., with Jarrod King and Pat Bradshaw finishing sixth at 165 and 197 lbs., respectively.

NCaa Division i National Champions Sean o’Day

1989 -- 134 lbs. Sean O’Day became the first Fighting Scot to claim a Division I National Championship. While competing at 134 pounds, O’Day, the third seed going in, won six matches at the 1989 NCAA Tournament in Oklahoma City, OK. He was an 11-8 winner over fourth-seed T.J. Sewell of Oklahoma. O’Day dominated his early matches, winning twice by technical fall, then posting a major decision against ninth-seed Chuck Barbee of Oklahoma State. He defeated the sixth seed, Jerry Durso of Nore Dame, in the quarterfinals before knocking off the second seed, Joe Melchiore of Iowa, in the semifinals. That capped a 35-5 season for the senior. O’Day finished his stellar career with an 116-23-2 record and was a three-time All-American.

Josh Koscheck became Edinboro’s second National Champion in 2001, capping a perfect 42-0 season with an 8-1 win over Maurice Worthy of Army, the third seed. That came a year after he lost to Oklahoma’s Byron Tucker, 3-0, in the title match. Koscheck was dominant in his run to the title, defeating three seeds while allowing just four points. He was a 6-1 winner over eighth-seed Nathan Coy of Oregon State in the quarterfinals, and bested Tyrone Lewis of Oklahoma State, seeded fourth, by a 7-2 count in the semifinals. In 2002 Koscheck became Edinboro’s first four-time AllAmerican, finishing with a 128-17 career record. He never finished lower than fourth (1999), adding a second place in 2000 and third in 2002.

gregor gillespie 2007 -- 149 lbs.

Gregor Gillespie made it three Division I national champions at Edinboro with an impressive run in Auburn Hills, MI. Just a sophomore, he came in seeded fifth and proceeded to knock off four seeds, including the first, third and fourth. He was a 6-2 winner over fourth-seed Jordan Leen of Cornell in the quarterfinals, avenging an earlier loss. In one of the tournament’s biggest upset, he snapped Minnesota’s Dustin Schlatter’s 65-match winning streak, handing the defending national champion a 3-2 defeat. In the finals, he bested local favorite Josh Churella of Michigan, the third seed, thanks to a takedown in overtime, 31. Gillespie finished the year with a 34-2 record.

all-Time Wrestling Team

In conjunction with Edinboro University’s celebration of its Sesquicentennial in 2006-07, the Athletic Department recognized its all-time teams in a variety of sports. That included a selection of the All-Time Wrestling Team. A total of twenty former wrestlers were selected. The group was highlighted by two of Edinboro’s three Division I national champions. Josh Koscheck is Edinboro’s lone four-time All-American, and captured the national championship at 174 lbs. in 2001. He finished with a 128-17 career record, including 42-0 in ’71. Sean O’Day was Edinboro’s first Division I national champion, winning the 134 lb. title 1989. He was a three-time All-American, going 116-23-2 for his career. The team also included three wrestlers who won national championships while competing on the Division II level and one NAIA national champion. Leading the way was heavyweight Dean Hall, who was the Division II titlist in 1986, then went on to finish fourth at the Division I nationals that year. He finished as a three-time All-American on the Division I level. Mike Hahesy, currently an assistant coach with the Fighting Scots, won the Division II championship in 1985 at 158 lbs., and was the runner-up in 1986. Matt Furey was a two-time Division II All-American, winning the national championship in 1985. Tom Herr was the NAIA heavyweight national champion in 1973. Two other wrestlers achieved All-American honors three times. Jason Robison competed at 190 lbs., with his highest finish second place at 190 lbs. in 1998. Tom Shifflet is also a three-time All-American, all at 142 lbs. Six other wrestlers on the All-Time Team earned All-American accolades twice. Most recently it was Shawn Bunch, who finished as the national runner-up at 133 lbs. in 2005 and was third in 2006. Tony Robie also narrowly missed capturing a national title, finishing second at 158 lbs. in 1997 after a fifth place finish in 1995. Lou Rosselli, Terry Kennedy, Matt King, and David Ray also earned All-American recognition twice, with Ray a split Division I/Division II All-American.

This is Edinboro University

E

dinboro University of Pennsylvania is the region’s largest and most comprehensive institution of higher education. Under the leadership of President Jeremy D. Brown, who assumed the helm on July 1, 2007, Edinboro adopted the motto, “Great Things Happen Here!” Yet the words represent much more than a tagline or catchy phrase. They reflect upon a changing and growing University that strives for excellence regionally, nationally and globally. Founded more than 150 years ago by the descendants of Scottish immigrants, Edinboro’s beautiful 585-acre campus is now home to more than 7,600 students enrolled in over 100 undergraduate and graduate programs of study. Rich in its Scottish tradition, the University’s majors in art, animation, criminal justice, education, and speech language pathology have earned regional recognition and national accolades. Situated almost equal distance (about 100 miles) from the cultural, entertainment and major league sports metropolitan areas of Cleveland, Buffalo and Pittsburgh, Edinboro is less than 20 miles south of Erie, Pennsylvania’s fourth largest city, and 20 miles north of Meadville, the Crawford County seat. Edinboro’s Baron-Forness Library has more than 500,000 bound volumes and 1.4 million microform units, along with an online catalog access to numerous databases and electronic reserves and archives. The library, the region’s largest, is equipped with a wireless network, commuter labs and is accessible to users with visual impairments.

Dr. Jeremy D. Brown President, Edinboro University of Pennsylvania

D

r. Jeremy D. Brown became the 16th President of Edinboro University of Pennsylvania on July 1, 2007, and was formally inaugurated and installed on November 30. Dr. Brown, a native of Manchester, England, came to Edinboro from the State University of New York at Canton where he served as Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs since 2003. Since his arrival at Edinboro, his leadership has resulted in campus growth and a renewed effort to enhance the University’s reputation for excellence regionally, nationally and on a global scale. He has already traveled to Poland and China, renewing collaborative agreements with universities there, and arranging for growth in global programs that not only take Edinboro University to the world, but bring the world to Edinboro. A group of Chinese middle school students visited Edinboro for several weeks during the past summer, and Panamanian middle school students are scheduled to visit for three weeks in January. In addition to Dr. Brown’s emphasis on academic excellence and enrollment growth at the undergraduate and graduate levels, he has launched a series of ambitious campus improvements, including the University’s $115 million student housing project that will accommodate nearly 1,600 students in suite-style apartment living, and construction of the $5 million multipurpose sports and recreation dome. Construction will also begin shortly on the new $5 million Human Services Building, and in 2009 the $23 million Cooper Hall science building renovation and expansion will begin. During his short time here, Dr. Brown has reinvigorated the Edinboro community with a sense of pride over the University’s rich Scottish heritage. Royal Stewart tartan can be seen everywhere on campus! President Brown’s educational background, from academics to administration, is impressive. He earned his Bachelor of Science and Ph.D. in nuclear physics from the University of Birmingham, England. He conducted his doctoral work in the area of experimental nuclear physics at Birmingham University and at the University of California-Berkeley. Immediately following completion of his Ph.D., President Brown spent two years at Indiana University involved in nuclear physics research.

Recently, the University completed the new $5 million Dr. William P. Alexander Music Center, the first campus building constructed to meet the specific needs of the music department, and also completed the $20 million expansion and renovation of the Frank G. Pogue Student Center. The largest construction project in Edinboro University’s history – a suite-style student housing complex – is well underway with the first phase of the 1,600-bed Highlands at Edinboro expected to be ready for occupancy in January. The new $5 million multipurpose sports and recreational dome is also now under construction, meaning athletic teams can hold full practice sessions during inclement weather inside the region’s largest free-standing, air-supported facility. Even more, construction will soon begin on the new $5 million Human Services Building, and next year on the $23 million expansion and renovation of the Cooper Hall science building. In addition to the five-acre Mallory Lake and ample pastoral and wooded areas, there are more than 40 other buildings on the spacious Edinboro campus, including residence halls with private or shared rooms, co-ed housing, honors housing and livinglearning floors for academic and special interest student groups. Van Houten Dining Hall offers a variety of student meal plans, and Skipjack’s fast food emporium is perfect for an energy-booster at any time. Edinboro’s School of Graduate Studies and Research, with it’s technology-based computer-assisted distance learning, now offers the region’s fastest growing academic programs. Edinboro University in Erie – The Porreco Center, is a beautiful 27-acre campus that includes classrooms, computer laboratory and a unique facility for hosting small conferences, business meetings and special events. Edinboro University in Meadville is located in the city’s historic Bessemer Building. All Edinboro University facilities are connected by free EMTA bus service. In fact, in this new era of high fuel costs, students, faculty and staff can ride free anywhere EMTA bus service is offered! So you can see that Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, home of the Fighting Scots NCAA athletic teams and first-class athletic venues, offers the complete collegiate experience for undergraduate and graduate students. What’s more, Edinboro’s faculty and staff of 800 individuals working as a single team to support our students’ higher education aspirations, underscore our new motto. It’s true! Great things do happen here!

Following his stint at Indiana, Dr. Brown accepted a faculty position in the Physics Department at Princeton University, where, in addition to continuing his research, he taught undergraduate and graduate-level physics courses. Princeton was not only rich with tradition, but its Physics Department had been home to the great Albert Einstein and John Nash! During this period, Dr. Brown also served as a resident faculty fellow at Rockefeller College and was faculty liaison for academic and social programs. Transitioning into academic administration, Dr. Brown was named associate dean of the Graduate School at Yale University. His portfolio included the Science, Engineering and Biomedical Departments, as well as recruitment of underrepresented minority students. In addition, Dr. Brown served as the Graduate School’s chief budget officer. Later, Dr. Brown returned to Princeton as associate dean of the faculty. During this appointment, Dr. Brown advised the dean of faculty and provost on long-range academic planning and budgeting. He also supervised all personnel issues for the 960 members of the technical, research and library staffs. In 2000, President Brown was named rector of Florida State UniversityPanama, serving as the chief executive officer of a small U.S. university operating in Latin America. While he was there, enrollment, curriculum and revenues grew dramatically as he developed strategic plans for growth and designed and implemented a national and international recruiting program. During his career, Dr. Brown published many scholarly articles and has been frequently invited as a speaker at international conferences, research institutions and universities. In June, Dr. Brown and his wife, Rebeca Acuña, became the proud parents of a son, Andrew Jeremy Brown. Although the happy parents had discussed the name “Andrew” prior to their arrival on campus, it is fortuitous that the patron saint of Scotland is Saint Andrew. President Brown is also an avid sports enthusiast. Being from Manchester, he is a lifelong fan of the Manchester United soccer team. He also coached the St. Lawrence University men’s and women’s squash teams for three years, taking them to the national tournament, and he likes to play squash himself. He also enjoys sailing and skiing. In addition to his new parent role, he also very much enjoys spending time with his older sons, Lucas and Gabriel, and visiting his family in England. `Dr. Brown’s academic, administrative and athletic experience, combined with his high aptitude for dealing with higher education issues, have more than adequately prepared him for his duties at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. Already, after only a year in office, his leadership and stewardship have contributed in a positive way to serving Edinboro’s students, faculty and staff, the northwestern Pennsylvania community and beyond.

Director of athletics

Bruce Baumgartner B

ruce Baumgartner is regarded as one of the greatest American wrestlers ever, being recognized as the US. Olympic Wrestler of the Century by Globalaccess.com six years ago and later being inducted into the Wrestling Hall of Fame. Now Baumgartner is building a solid reputation as an athletic administrator. Baumgartner was named the acting Director of Athletics in 1997, then was awarded the job permanently in ’98. As the guiding force of the Fighting Scot athletic program, Baumgartner has initiated the Annual Athletic Fund Drive, a fundraising project designed to provide athletic scholarship funds. In addition, he has initiated several other fundraising projects, including a semi-annual sports memorabilia auction which has raised almost $100,000 in six years. In recent years Baumgartner has targeted improvements in McComb Fieldhouse, and the results are clearly evident. Both the gymnasium and outer lobby were modernized, with emphasis placed on the success of Edinboro’s athletic teams and student-athletes. The muchanticipated weight room renovation was completed a year ago,with stunning results. Now comes the latest inovation at Edinboro, the Mike S. Zafirovski Sports & Recreation Dome. The five million dollar air-supported dome project is scheduled for completion in the spring of 2009. A four-time Olympic medalist, Baumgartner served as an Edinboro wrestling coach for nearly 13 years, including seven seasons as the head coach. He compiled a 70-36 record, including a 14-0 dual meet record in 1997, the best finish in school history. The Fighting Scots then went on to finish sixth at the NCAA Division I National Championships, their highest finish ever. Baumgartner affirmed his status as the greatest freestyle wrestler in American history by winning the bronze medal at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. It was his fourth Olympic medal and recordsetting 13th world-level medal. Baumgartner was honored by his fellow United States Olympic athletes when he was chosen to carry the American flag for the 1996 opening ceremonies. He won his first gold medal in Los Angeles in 1984, America’s first in 60 years of super heavyweight wrestling. He added a the silver medal in the 1988 Games in Seoul, Korea, followed by a second gold medal in Barcelona, Spain in 1992. Baumgartner was honored as the winner of the James E. Sullivan Award in 1995 as the outstanding amateur athlete in the United

States. He did not lose to an American wrestler from 1981 to his retirement in 1998. He has been inducted into numerous Hall of fames, including the Wrestling hall of Fame in 2002 and the Pennsylvania Hall of Fame in 2005. As a collegiate wrestler at Indiana State University, Baumgartner won 134 of 146 collegiate matches with 73 falls. He was twice the runnerup at the national collegiate tournament, then posted a perfect 44-0 mark his senior year to capture the NCAA crown. Baumgartner was honored by the NCAA as a top “Top V Award” recipient for his athletic, leadership and academic success. He was later awarded an NCAA post-graduate scholarship after earning his bachelor’s degree in Industrial Art Education. He utilized the award to earn a master’s degree at Oklahoma State University. While officially retiring from wrestling in 1998, Baumgartner still performs a great deal of community service as a motivational speaker and camp clinician. He and his wife, Linda, reside in Edinboro with their three sons, Bryan (18), Zachary (15) and Dylan (11).
