Loren Williams of Tri Center, Iowa per intermat at 149/157
Some comments from others
3-time state placewinner (2-time champ) lost first round of state freshmen year and wrestled back for 3rd. Tough kid will add quality depth the the middle of the lineup. I think he has about a 151-13 career record from what I could find with 11 of those losses coming his freshmen year.
I saw that Loren's former teammate at Tri-Center, Trevor Paulson, is on the ISU roster, which probably helps. Trevor is Travis and Trent's nephew, I think, and I see has an active Twitter account, including a recent picture of the new wrestling room. Tri-Center is a wrestling power in that area year in and year out, though neighboring schools Logan-Magnolia to the north, and Underwood to the west, are also good usually and unlike Tri-Center, which once finished second, have some Iowa state team titles. I think Tri-Center won the Omaha North tournament last season against some of Nebraska's best large schools. They are currently strong and get a lot of support from the community.
Loren's record at state is pretty outstanding, after losing as a freshman (his first match) and coming back to take third, and winning two titles since.
Welcome aboard Loren! Go Cyclones!!
