“I am so excited to be joining Andy and Chad. I have a feel for the passion that they bring to the program and the student-athletes, and we are going to enjoy this process together, working hard at pushing these athletes to reach their potential,” Eustice said. “I see desire from these wrestlers, and I will help them set high goals and push them to be their best. I cannot wait to get work.”
“Davidson is a special place. The sense of community and energy behind the school was inspiring for me to see. Everyone is working to help build this program to another level – the administrators, coaches, faculty, support staff, and alumni. There is an unbelievable focus on the student-athlete experience, and I want to be a part of it.”
