BTN Article on Iowa/Oklahoma State (Shane Sparks)
« on: November 12, 2015, 06:35:59 PM »
Article I wrote for BTN.com about Iowa/Oklahoma State Dual this Saturday. Looking forward to seeing one of the best wrestlers in the country in our own Alex Dieringer. The first ever championship match I broadcasted on BadgerStateWrestling.com was Alex Dieringer from Port Washington.  That was back in December of 2007 at the Mary Loy inside Fond du Lac High School.  How crazy is that!!??  I have been lucky enough to do several interviews with him after he won Fargo titles and have called his two national championships on Live Sports Radio.  Really hoping I get the chance to interview him on Big 10 Network.  Hope you enjoy the article.  Talked with both Tom Brands and John Smith on the phone today and both teams are ready.  It's going to be a great day for wrestling!!!

Great article as always Shane.  I just wish BTN was showing this live.  I know it would go against football, but this is a once a lifetime event.  Oh well, will have to wait until Sunday.

Watching the match live. 42200 in attendance.  Just incredible.  Last match right now.  Looks like Iowa will win it
