F&M Wrestling Introduces Class of 2021

F&M Wrestling Introduces Class of 2021

LANCASTER, Pa. – Franklin & Marshall head wrestling coach Mike Rogers announced the Diplomats' incoming freshman class. The 11-member group is one of Rogers' most geographically diverse and features four from New Jersey, two from Pennsylvania, and one each from New Hampshire, New York, Virginia, California, and Massachusetts.   

The Class of 2021 joins a projected group of 23 returners for next winter as F&M lost four seniors to graduation, including just one regular for the team's dual lineup.

"The class of 2021 has the coaching staff very excited," said Rogers. "We have a tough group of recruits coming in who will provide depth, as well as challenge each other and the returning members of the team."

"We expect this group will help the F&M wrestling program continue to move in a positive direction."
