Maryland wrestler Spencer Myers joins Football team

Coach Randy Edsall has announced that Wrestler Spencer Myers has officially joined the Maryland football team.

Myers shared,

“This is something I have been contemplating since coming to Maryland.  It was one of the best decisions in my life to wrestle. But an opportunity arose to get a scholarship to play football and it’s something I’ve really wanted to do. It’s a great opportunity for me. I love both sports and I didn’t want to give up one for the other. Luckily, I was able to work it out.”

In his time with the Maryland wrestling team, Myers has won the ACC heavyweight title twice (2011 and 2012) and earned All-American status as a freshman with a sixth-place finish at the NCAA Championships.

A three-sport star in high school, Myers was named the Pennsylvania wrestler of the year and football defensive player of the year as a senior.  He will join the team and play on the defensive line.
