    Speaking at the Peninsula Sports Club’s Headliner’s Night

    Speaking at the Peninsula Sports Club’s Headliner’s Night

    The 72nd annual Headliner’s Night, hosted by the Peninsula Sports Club, took place on June 27 at the Omni Hotel in Newport News, Virginia. William & Mary football play-by-play commentator Jay Colley served as the Master of Ceremonies for the annual event, which featured Mat Talk Online’s Jason Bryant as the event’s Keynote Speaker. 







    In 2021, Bryant received the Bob Moskowitz Media Award from the Peninsula Sports Club just hours after he left the Olympic Games in Tokyo. This year, he had a chance to speak about his experiences around the mat, but how much his life was shaped by watching and covering sports on the Peninsula before breaking out into the world of international wrestling. The entire night is captured on this episode of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast. The keynote stars around 11 minutes in with a lot of Virginia-based stuff before and after if that’s your kinda thing.

    Mat Stats 10: Jason Bryant’s plan to renovate Division I wrestling conferences – SOW22

    Mat Stats 10: Jason Bryant’s plan to renovate Division I wrestling conferences – SOW22

    There are 32 conferences in the Division I athletics landscape. Among the 350 Division I schools, there will be 81 that have wrestling at the start of the 2023-24 season. Those 81 teams will be spread across 28 different all-sports conferences and collected into seven conferences that sponsor wrestling. All 14 Big Ten schools sponsor the sport. Six of the ACC’s 15 schools sponsor the sport. The other five conferences are a collection of conference names with affiliate schools populating them and one 17-team wrestling-only conference. According to host Jason Bryant, It’s time we stopped the contraction of wrestling conferences and create more conferences with more qualifying tournaments, aligning schools with peer institutions instead of putting giant geographically inadequate conferences together for the sake of qualifying and get to having conferences that promote competitive dynamics and have the potential for growth.







    This episode of the Mat Stats show is Jason Bryant’s plan to renovate college wrestling and he’s starting with the conference structure. While this show is part of the NWCA’s offerings, Bryant’s proposal is his own and not on any NWCA agenda.

    Brendan Buckley excited about Final X and the future of Beat The Streets New York

    Brendan Buckley, Executive Director of Beat The Streets New York, talks about his path to BTS, the mission of the program and how the organization has grown and created opportunities since launching in what was once a barren landscape of wrestling. Oh, and that whole Final X thing coming to the Hulu Theater on June 8 in New York City!







    Prior to getting to the show with Brendan, I’ll give you a rundown on some points about World Team Trials attendance and wrestling attendance in general as well as a shout out to my former boss at the NWCA, Pat Tocci, who is leaving the organization to take a job with a local school district as its Athletics Director. Buckley’s interview starts about 18:00 minutes in.

What a great tribute. ODU65

This episode came up after an interview with J Robinson. I would normally skip an episode like this because I’m not familiar with the subject matter. I’m glad I didn’t. It was so well put together and interesting that I listened with great interest. What a great tribute.
