Wabash senior Tony Hough signed to wrestle and play football next year at Manchester University Thursday.
After anchoring the offensive line for the Wabash football team, Hough recorded a 28-9 record in wrestling, winning the Wabash County Invite and the Peru sectional at 182lbs. Hough finished 2nd at the Peru regional to qualify for the Ft Wayne semi state.
”Being a two sport athlete in college will be a major challenge” Hough said. ”It will be tough with the depth Manchester has in both sports. I think I will wrestle at 184 or 195 and play on the defensive line in football with my freshman year being a learning experience. I hope to see major time my sophomore year”.
While at Manchester Hough will study Sports Management
