Brad Pataky | Assistant Coach | Wrestling | Lock Haven University

Describe the qualities that your program is looking for in a potential student-athlete?

Lock Haven University is a school that strives to be on top both in the classroom and on the mat. Our number one goal is to provide the tools for our student athletes to graduate. When a student athlete graduates, he or she will be ready to excel in his or her profession. Our school provides student athletes the resources necessary to balance both academic studies and athletic performance.

Could you give us an example of a current or former player who exceeded your expectations, highlighting the reasons that player excelled?

One of our student-athletes, Seth Creasy, came in his freshman year with goals already set. As a freshman his wrestling career was below .500. At the end of his career, Seth made it to the NCAA National Championships with above a 3.6 GPA.
