Griffin Parriott commits to Purdue 08 Jul 15

Griffin Parriott, two-time state champion wrestler for New Prague High School, announced Wednesday that he plans to continue his wrestling career at Purdue University. 

Parriott announced his decision on FloRadio Live, an internet radio wrestling show Wednesday morning. Parriott is one of the top high school seniors in the nation and was recruited by several major wrestling schools, and in the end it came down to two Big 10 Schools, Purdue and Minnesota. He said he liked the direction the Purdue program is going under a new coaching staff. 

Parriott recently completed two weeks of training at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs (see story in the July 9 issue of The New Prague Times). He will be competing in the Junior and Cadet National Championships later this month in Fargo, ND, and will return to the Olympic Training Center from August 2-10. 

Parriott will be a senior at New Prague High School
