Jefferson-Morgan grad Teasdale to wrestle at Iowa

After Gavin Teasdale left the Penn State wrestling program in January, many wrestling fans wondered where he would land.

Would it be Lock Haven, West Virginia, Pitt, Campbell University or North Carolina?

It was none of the above. The 2018 Jefferson-Morgan grad and former Trib HSSN Wrestler of the Year announced on a podcast that he’s going to Iowa. He was a four-time PIAA Class AA champion.

Teasdale originally committed to Iowa with Spencer Lee in 2017, then de-committed and picked Penn State.

During his interview Teasdale talked about his weight problems at Penn State and poor choices after his sophomore season in high school. Teasdale said all contributed to his problems at Penn State.

Teasdale will join several former Keystone State wrestlers: Franklin Regional grads Lee and Michael Kemerer, Central Cambria’s Max Murin, Punxsutawney’s Kaleb Young and Exeter’s Austin DeSanto on the Hawkeyes’ roster.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
