Virginia Tech wrestling Head Coach Tony Robie has made it clear — the Southeast Regional Training Center (SERTC) is vital to the future success of the Tech wrestling program. The bigger the SERTC becomes, the more it can help Virginia Tech wrestling.
The SERTC took a big step forward on Tuesday, as it announced that former All-American wrestler Tyler Graff would be joining as a resident athlete.
Graff, a four-time All-American at Wisconsin, has quite the resume. He’s won three University National Championships, placed third in the Olympic team trials in 2012 and 2016, and was named the 2017 Pan American Champion and Outstanding Wrestler.
Graff joins Ty Walz and Frank Molinaro as resident athletes at the SERTC. Molinaro also serves as an assistant for Virginia Tech wrestling, while continuing to pursue his professional career. Along with Walz, Graff will also help coach Virginia Tech alongside of his pursuit to make the 2020 Olympic team.
