Nittany Lion Wrestler David Erwin to Miss 2008-09 Season Due to Injury
Nov. 13, 2008
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Penn State Nittany Lion wrestler David Erwin (Urbana, Ohio) will miss the entire 2008-09 season after suffering an injury this past weekend at the Michigan State Open. The junior 174-pounder was ranked No. 18 nationally at his weight.
Erwin's injury forces the two-year Penn State starter to end his campaign with a 3-0 mark. Erwin was hurt in the semifinals at the MSU Open and took an injury forfeit before the finals bout.
With Erwin out, true freshman Quentin Wright (Wingate, Pa.) will forgo a red-shirt season and make his collegiate debut this Sunday. Wright will get the call at 174 when No. 7 Penn State hosts Hofstra at 1 p.m. in Rec Hall. Wright, a two-time PIAA State Champion from nearby Bald Eagle Area High School, was one of the nation's top recruits coming out of high school.
Tickets are available for the Hofstra dual and all Penn State wrestling matches. Fans can purchase season tickets by calling 814-863-1000 or 800-NITTANY. Season tickets are $32 for adults and $24 for youth. Single event tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for youth. Penn State students get in FREE with a Penn State ID.
