Episode 16 of The Guillotine Grapevine heads over to Augsburg College as two-time U.S. World Team member Jake Clark ran some visiting German wrestlers through a short practice. There’s a tie with the Germans and why they’re here in Minnesota training for a week and it’s not necessarily what you might think.
The Germans also had an opportunity to talk with Olympic wrestler and coach Alan Rice as he joined the practice in the wrestling room named in his honor. We also catch up with German coach Marcel Fornoff and Anthony Sanders. It’s Sanders’ father who is a Minnesota native and former St. Cloud State wrestler.
They’ll work out at PINnacle and Takedown up in Brainerd before heading back.
Episode 6 of the Guillotine Grapevine previews The Clash brackets, which were released on December 28. The Clash, the National High School Wrestling Duals, is set for Rochester, Minn., on January 1-2 should be one of the finest high school wrestling events in the nation.
The second part of our show talks with Minnesota’s own Jake Clark, a two-time U.S. World Team member in Greco-Roman. Jake is back training with the Minnesota Storm and even in his advanced age, he’s found the fountain of youth and it’s either from coffee or the warmth of Hawaii.
Jake talks about his past with Greco, the Marine Corps, what it was like leaving the University of Minnesota and how he dealt with the loss of friend and training partner Keitani Graham.
