The most successful wrestler coming out of the Los Alamos High School program in recent history will take his game to the next level.
Los Alamos’ Brian Geyer, a two-time state champion, will sign his National Letter of Intent Thursday to join the University of Nebraska-Kearney next year, one of the top small-school programs in the country.
Geyer, a three-sport athlete, won back-to-back state titles, including one to cap off a huge 2013-14 season while wrestling under the eye of head coach and father Bob Geyer.
Nebraska-Kearney has about 7,000 students and the campus is relatively compact, something that appealed to Geyer as he toured colleges around the area following the season.
“I really did like the campus,” he said. “Some of the other campuses, they weren’t as green or anything. They were really spread out. (Colorado State University-Pueblo) was really spread out. It was a bigger campus, but it has less people. I didn’t have to spend 30 minutes walking across to my next class…my mom said, ‘you’re going to spend the next four years there, you’d better like it.’”
He said he was never sure he could wrestle in college, even after winning the first of two consecutive state titles following the 2012-13 season.
