Super 32 Day One Alpha Dogs

When you make the trip to Greensboro, North Carolina, to compete in Super 32, you know there will be buzzsaws at every weight. These were the seven alpha dogs who stood a cut above the rest on Saturday's first day of competition.

You can watch EVERY match from day one and look through all the brackets on FloArena. We return to action Sunday, October 16 at 8 AM with the quarterfinals LIVE on FloWrestling.

113 - No. 6 Adam Busiello, New York

The Penn State commitment went pin, pin, major, tech, to make the quarterfinal round. Though he took some losses this summer, he is on a warpath right now and could be poised to go back-to-back at the Super 32.

120 - No. 20 Jakob Camacho, Connecticut

Camacho turned heads a couple weeks ago at Journeymen and kept that run going today in Greensboro. He started off the day with a pin and a major before knocking off No. 4 Drew Mattin. Camacho is starting to turn heads at just the right time.

126 - No. 7 Joey Silva, Florida

Tech, pin, pin, pin for the Florida hammer. Some favorites come in tight, some blow the doors off guys. Silva chose the latter.

138 - No. 3 Sammy Sasso, Pennsylvania

After Who's #1, Sasso was extremely displeased with his performance. So he got back in the lab with his Dark Knights brethren and came out like a man on fire Saturday morning. It's not just that he won by tech, tech, major, and pin, it's that he did so with a flourish. He was supposed to win this bracket, and he's throwing the kitchen sink at kids to make sure it happens.

152 - No. 19 (at 160) Hunter Willits, Colorado

I had not one but TWO great wrestling minds cue me on this kid. He's gone pin, 5-0, 5-0 and sits in the quarters. We've seen stars born here time and time again. Is Willits the next installment?

Willits starts off the day with a pinfall.


195 - No. 10 Gavin Hoffman, Pennsylvania

Bison Legend is quickly becoming one of the best clubs in the country, and Hoffman's success stands as a shining example. He felt a little sluggish up at 220 in Fargo, and ever since he dropped has been putting clinics on people. He went tech, pin, and major on the day, which is exactly what how you want to wrestle heading into a matchup with No. 6 Jakob Woodley on Sunday morning.

195 - No. 7 John Borst, Virginia

This weight was too good to not have two guys mentioned. Borst manhandled everyone in his path, with two first period pins and a major. Virginia Tech fans are going to love those bonus points when he comes to Blacksburg next fall.
