It was never a hard choice for current Gophers 157-pound starter Danny Zilverberg.
He comes from a long line of success with the Gophers. His father wrestled at Minnesota, and his two uncles were All-American wrestlers with the program. Even his older brother, David Zilverberg, was a part of the long-storied family tradition.
So when it came time for him to pick a college?
“There was really no other choice than Minnesota,” Danny Zilverberg said. “It’s kind of been a goal all my life.”
Danny Zilverberg’s career has been an uphill battle, but he earned a starting spot for the Gophers this season.
Cody Yohn took a long stare at the crowd, waved his arms and headed to the locker room at the Sports Pavilion for the final time.
He had just recorded a pin on Senior Day — the first at home in his career — and after the match, he admitted his emotions started to kick in.
“It was my last hurrah, and to have a match like I did coming off a pin was definitely something I’ll remember forever,” Yohn said after the No. 4 Gophers’ 32-6 win over unranked Michigan State on Sunday.
