Before boarding a plane to Budapest, Hungary, North Dakota State graduate and 2015 NCAA Division I All-American Hayden Zillmer joined The Guillotine Grapevine for Episode 29.
Zillmer has the unique distinction of being the first U.S. wrestler to make the National Team in both freestyle and Greco-Roman since Sam Hazewinkel in 2014. Zillmer was second at the U.S World Team Trials in April in Greco-Roman and third at the U.S. World Team Trials in freestyle last week in Lincoln, Nebraska.
