Fargo Success Equals NCAA Success

Tony Rotundo Cory Clark

As we approach the dog days of summer and things start to heat up it can only mean one thing, the Cadet and Junior Nationals are right around the corner in Fargo, ND.

Every year the wrestling world ascends upon this small and otherwise unassuming city to find out who the best young wrestlers in the country are. This year you can catch all of the action between July 15-22 inside the Fargodome, and it you can't make it to Fargo for the event, you can watch every match streaming live on FloWrestling.

This tournament will not only tell us who the best young wrestlers in America are, it will give us a look ahead and who we can expect big things from in the future including NCAA All-American and National Champions.

As we take a look back at this year's NCAA All-Americans, 51 of the 80 NCAA All-Americans took home hardware from Fargo before they got to college.
