Roman Bravo-Young Begins His Last Year Of NCAA Wrestling


Roman Bravo Young came in as a key recruit in the transition from one generation of PSU wrestlers to the next. Getting the start as a true freshman, he kept up well with the Nittany reputation becoming a staple in the lineup alongside teammates like Bo Nickal and Mark Hall.

Cael Sanderson has secured his name among legends with the work he’s done at the helm for the Lions securing 8 team titles in his 12 seasons, and don’t forget the 2020 tournament got canceled. Cael certainly has something figured out that his colleagues can’t quite do like he can. Whether it’s recruiting, training, or programming something about his team works year in and year out.

Now entering his fourth year of eligibility as a three time All-American with a Big 10 and National title in his Junior Campaign. Touting a career record of 58-9, Sanderson and Bravo’s teammates will certainly look for the senior to lead the upper weights through this season.

With the pandemic canceling the 2020 season and throwing off everyones eligibility, Roman actually has another year to wrestle after his senior season. That being said, Roman retweeted a tweet on Monday, it went as follows.

RBY seems to have his mind made up, this season will be his last wrestling for Penn State. Fans of the reigning national champ will have to wonder who the next young talent will be. Fans of Bravo-Young’s will have to wait and see what he decides to do after May. Either way wrestling fanatics are in for an exciting year with the RBY led Nittany Lions.

Since then he has made crazy strides in his wrestling ability under coach Cael Sanderson. His freshman season ended up with an 8th place All American finish which was very impressive with the stacked field at 133 pounds where former Nittany Lion Nick Suriano beat Daton Fix in the NCAA Finals. Since then RBY has gone on to win a Big Ten title over Austin Desanto this season and more recently winning a NCAA Title over Oklahoma State’s Daton Fix in the finals. Let’s talk about the dual meet with Iowa, we all know at this point in time RBY is a huge favorite over Austin Desanto but the main thing is this is a bout where we need bonus points. That may just make or break the dual. Looking at the post season it will definitely be a fun one should him and Fix run it back in the NCAA Finals again with Fix having tremendous success on the international scene making the world finals at 61kg.
