Delta’s Gabriel Meyer to Wrestle for Lourdes University

Gabriel “Gabe” Meyer has signed a National Letter of Intent with Lourdes University in Sylvania, located just 25 miles from his hometown of Delta, to continue his education and wrestling career.  The close proximity of Lourdes was a major factor in his school of choice.

“The fact that they were close and a few other NWOAL guys signed there for wrestling.  I really wanted to be familiar with it,” said Gabe, explaining his decision.  “I can stay around family and I already know some of the guys on the team.” 

He also had the good fortune of competing for one of the best high school wrestling programs in the state of Ohio under the just-retired Coach Anthony Carrizales.  “He is a perfect example of a kid who has come up through our program and has made a life out of wrestling,” said Coach Carrizales.  “It’s an awesome thing to see these kids who you have known since they were five, six or seven years old take it to the next level and carry it into college and use all the lessons learned through Delta wrestling. 

The coach also commented on the many Delta students that have come out of the wrestling program and have performed in the classroom as well as on the mat to be able to make it to the next level.  “Wrestling in college isn’t just wrestling.  You’re a student-athlete and you have to be able to get it done in the classroom first.  It’s definitely something we’re proud of.”

Gabe began his wrestling career at Delta as a freshman competing in the 113-pound weight class and moved up a class each year before finishing his senior year at 138 pounds.  While wrestling for the Gray Wolves he plans to major in Digital Media and minor in Computer Science.
