It sounds easy.

"We're going in with all ten guys competing, they're going to have to perform. I think it's very possible that we can come away with ten All-Americans and if we do that, we're going to be national champions," said Travis Rutt, RCTC Head Coach.

For RCTC wrestling it just might be, the Yellowjackets have already proven they can do it winning a national title a year ago. Now they're going for another.

"It'd mean everything, it would make everything worth it every practice or all the stuff we went through COVID to get here. To be able to compete I mean it makes it all worth it," said Seth Brossard.

They've given themselves a good chance of doing it. Including Seth Brossard, RCTC has wrestlers qualified at all ten weight classes, a testament to their recruiting.

"We tell every recruit that walks through here, our goal is to win a national championship, a national championship team. So win national championships and whatever that means to them individually whether that's ok I'm going to win this national championship or I'm going to help the team with this national championship," said Rutt.

But it's also bigger than winning.

"We want to make sure that they give back to the love of the sport and you know that they enjoy being here, that they enjoy competing, they enjoy coming to practice every day not just stepping on the mat to compete."

" I definitely love this program, I'll always love it even after I leave. Coach Rutt's awesome, he recruited me here, and its definitely someplace that I'm proud to be," said Brossard

And that love is what leads to success.

"Whether that's hanging out with each other back at our apartment building or here, we just love each other. We try to hang out as much as we can, try to make each other better," said Gavin Christoffersen.
