Manheim, Pennsylvania – In conjunction with the National Wrestling Coaches Association and the Wrestlers in Business Network, USA Wrestling will host a special Google+ Hangout On Air on Friday, October 24 at 2 p.m. Eastern featuring five athletes who will compete in the 49th edition of the NWCA All-Star Classic.
 The 2014 NWCA All-Star Classic is presented by the United States Marine Corps and the Wrestlers in Business Network and is hosted by Penn and WIBN-Philadelphia. The event will take place on November 1 at the Palestra on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania.
 The Hangout will be streamed live and archived via USA Wrestling’s YouTube channel and on, the official website of USA Wrestling.
 NCAA Division I champions Logan Stieber of Ohio State, Alex Dieringer of Oklahoma State and Nick Gwiazdowski of N.C. State headline the call. Stieber is wrestling in the event for the second straight year and aims for his fourth NCAA championship, while Dieringer and Gwiazdowski, both juniors, look for their second straight title. It’ll be the first time the two compete in the event.
 A pair of Pennsylvania natives will also join the Hangout as NCAA finalist Josh Kindig of Oklahoma State and Lehigh All-American Mason Beckman will participate. Beckman will be competing in his second straight All-Star Classic.
 Richard Immel, Coordinator of Broadcasting, Social Media and Grassroots Marketing for USA Wrestling will facilitate the Hangout and will also be joined by Jason Bryant, representing the NWCA.
 This will be the first Google Hangout of the season for USA Wrestling. Fans and media can RSVP for the live event by clicking this link:
“This Google Hangout is just another way wrestling has been embracing the new technologies people use every day,” said NWCA Executive Director Mike Moyer. “We’re appreciative and gracious for USA Wrestling to host this live streaming event and it’s not only a way to drum up support for the All-Star Classic, but a chance to hear from the athletes themselves in a roundtable discussion.”
Fans can also ask questions via Twitter by using the #NWCAClassic hashtag.
