With a unique air of confidence and a style all his own on the mat, Tony Ramos, the current 133-pound NCAA Champion has developed quite a following, though not all love him. Truth be told, rival fans are known for not being particularly fond of him. That being said, they would love to have this Iowa Hawkeye on their team.
Wearing a shirt proudly proclaiming “I will dominate” at the 2014 NCAA Championships likely did little to help his reputation. Of course, even the biggest haters can’t deny that he totally dominated the meet.
According to Iowa’s head wrestling coach, Tom Brands, “Tony is a confident guy.” Perhaps it is this unusually high level of confidence that saw Tony end his Iowa Hawkeye career as a national champion.
Now, we have to sit back and see what the next step in his wrestling career will be. Married on July 19 to longtime girlfriend, Megan Eskew, he has returned from his honeymoon and is back in the gym. So, is Tony Ramos' next goal to win an Olympic gold medal? Only time will tell.
