Four-time NCAA qualifier Devin Skatzka will join the Gopher Wrestling Club Regional Training Center, a training site for elite athletes pursing national and international success.
A native of Richmond, Mich., Skatzka competed the last two years for the Golden Gophers after beginning his career at Indiana University. Wrestling at 174 pounds, he was a two-time All-American and compiled a 58-21 record with the Maroon and Gold. Skatzka had four straight top-eight finishes at the Big Ten Championships, including third- and fourth-place finishes with Minnesota.
A four-time Michigan state high school champion, Skatzka will join teammate Mitch McKee, as well as train alongside fellow Gopher alums Tony Nelson, Brett Pfarr, Sean Russell, and Zach Sanders. The group will be coached by former Minnesota NCAA Champion and 2009 World Team member Dustin Schlatter.
