Northland Community and Technical College of Thief River Falls, MN has landed two North Dakota seniors for their 2019 recruiting class in Bismarck Legacy’s Thomas Sheet and West Fargo Sheyenne’s Hunter Hermanson.
Scheet, a 160 pound Class A third place finisher at Legacy, could be a diamond in the rough for Northland. He improved dramatically during his final season with the Sabres, going from non-placer in 2017 to state finalist contender only one season later. Scheet’s love for the sport is what drew him to competition at the next level.
“I want to continue to compete and broaden my knowledge of the sport,” Scheet stated. “I love wrestling and want to keep doing it as long as I can.”
For Scheet, the fit of a small Junior College school was perfect.
“I chose Northland because it offers an affordable cost and small class sizes. Coach Fynboh and a couple of the guys on the team gave me a sense of community and I knew right away that I wanted to be a part of the family”
Hermanson was 23-15 for the Mustangs as a senior last season at 113 pounds and plans to study Liberal Arts at Northland. After finishing his high school career, Hermanson felt there was a lot left to give on the mat.
“I really feel that I have some untapped potential and I believe that joining the Northland team is a great opportunity to bring that potential out,” Hermanson told NDwrestle.
Hermanson also liked Northland because of its small size.
“It’s a really nice college, and not very big,” Hermann noted. “Friends at Northland told me that teachers take the time to get to know yo on a person level, and its hard to find that at other places.”
