The Buffalo Valley Regional Training Center is excited to announce the addition of Austin Miller as a resident athlete for the 2017-2018 season. Miller has spent the past year as a student-assistant for the Lock Haven University Wrestling Team. A 2012 NCAA Qualifier, Miller wrestled for both Bucknell University and Oklahoma State University during his time in the collegiate ranks. On the Freestyle circuit, he has twice earned All-American honors at University Freestyle Nationals. A 2011 Graduate of Hempfield High School, he placed 2nd and 3rd at the PIAA State Tournament.
Miller, along with current resident athletes Dan Neff, and Kevin LeValley, will train and compete to represent the United States in World Championships and Olympic Games. The trio’s first competition could be the Dave Schultz Memorial International in Colorado Springs this November.
In addition to his role as a resident athlete, Miller will work with BVRTC Club coach Denny Harer to train the area’s youth wrestlers.
According to Head Coach Dan Wirnsberger,
I am thrilled to welcome Austin Miller to the Buffalo Valley Regional Training Center and back to the Bucknell Wrestling Family. I firmly believe that Austin has put himself in the right training environment to make an immediate splash both domestically and internationally. His passion for the sport and unique style are sure to provide an immediate impact on our program.
