HWC's Brent Metcalf is Back!

Last time most fans saw Brent Metcalf was at Carver Hawkeye Arena at the 2012 Olympic Trials. The event did not go the way he had planned to say the least. He held his head up and did what others have done before him. He helped to prepare his weight class for the London Games. After some time off to reflect, rebuild and recharge the young man from Davison Michigan is back and ready to take on all challengers as a leader for the Hawkeye Wrestling Club.
