Former Iowa State All-American Nick Fanthorpe has made the move from resident athlete with the Nittany Lion Wrestling Club to Assistant Coach (volunteer). Fanthorpe is in his second season as a collegiate coach with Penn State.
Fanthorpe had a stellar career at Iowa State. During his four year career in Ames, Fanthorpe wrestled three for current Lion mentor Cael Sanderson. The Naperville, Ill., native's ISU career was highlighted by a 32-6 mark as a sophomore. That year, 2007-08, Fanthorpe placed seventh at NCAAs to become a Cyclone All-American.
He was a two-time Big 12 Champion as well and a three time Academic All-Big 12 first teamer. An outstanding student-athlete, Fanthorpe won Iowa State's Total Commitment Award four straight years, winning in 2007, 08, 09 and 10.
Fanthorpe is married to the former Erin Witte, who serves as Penn State Wrestling's office manager. He graduated from Iowa State in 2010 with a degree in Community and Regional Planning.
