He won the 2001 National High School Championship title for seniors, and posted a 212-1 career record with 188 pins for Blair Academy.

He was undefeated at 47-0 his senior year at 160 pounds, and is expected to compete at 165 pounds. Bradley was a state champion and two-time state runner-up for South Tama High School. The Cadet National Champion recorded a 38-1 mark his senior year at 171 pounds, and is expected to compete at 174 or 184. Goodale was a three-time state champion for Osage High School. He posted a 39-0 record at 125 pounds as a senior, and is expected to wrestle at 125 or 133. Fellers placed third at the state meet twice, posting a 39-1 mark his senior year at 160 pounds for Fort Dodge High School. He is expected to wrestle at 174 or 184. Johnston was a two-time state champion for Shawnee Mission East High School at 152 pounds.

He is expected to compete at 149. "This is a good class because it fits our team needs, next year and for the future," said Zalesky. "This class will add a depth to our practice room that we haven't had lately. I'm looking for these eight guys to each bring their toughness into the room, which will help the entire team."
