Welcome to the Wrestling Mindset All-American Series, where we dive deep into the journeys and triumphs of the nation’s top collegiate wrestlers.



Join us as we sit down with NCAA All-Americans, reliving their moments of glory and discovering the mindset that propels them to success on the mat. To kick off this exciting series, we’re honored to introduce NCAA All-American Mitchell Mesenbrink.

They also talk about knowing how to compete with a positive attitude regardless of outcomes, dealing with pressure and doubt, and how the main focus should always be about being a good man.
