Cory Geyer has been granted permission to come aboard. To the United States Coast Guard Academy wrestling team, that is.
Geyer, a standout wrestler for the Los Alamos Hilltoppers, with two top-four finishes in his prep career, has been accepted to the Coast Guard Academy in New London, Conn.
It’s a big accomplishment for one of the top wrestlers to come through Los Alamos’ program in recent years, but Geyer said he’s not quite ready to jump on ship just yet. He said he will still continue the application process to attend the Air Force Academy, but at his point he likes what he’s seen from the Coast Guard.
Regardless of where he ends up, Geyer said his primary objective is to serve his country.
“I’ve always had the idea that everyone should serve their country to the best of their abilities,” Geyer said. “If you think the best way to serve your country is by being a teacher and being the best teacher you can be, or by being a garbage man, be the best garbage man you can be. With my skill set, I think I can help out the most in the military.”
Specifically, Geyer said, he wants to be an aircraft pilot and, interestingly, thinks the Coast Guard might give him more opportunity to do so than the Air Force.
