On this episode of the RUDIS Wrestling Podcast, Matt Dernlan is joined by Ohio State wrestling head coach Tom Ryan. The two discuss various aspects of life, ranging from how to manage an elite mentality, becoming the CEO of your own life, and how the Buckeyes are separating themselves from the rest of Division I wrestlers during this time of quarantine due to COVID-19.

Dernlan and Coach Ryan discuss how his wrestlers have been staying in shape during quarantine and how they are pushing themselves to reach the next level while in isolation. They discuss breakout wrestler and new Buckeye Anthony Echemendia and the road he had to take from Cuba to become a Division I wrestler. The two break down what winning a team national title in 2015 did for the program and how to reduce the noise of the world around you to become the best version of yourself.
