Redshirt junior Michael Macchiavello prepares to wrestle at the top of a period. Macchiavello knocked off third-seeded Jared Haught of Virginia Tech, who had beaten him twice already this season, scoring a takedown with 14 seconds on the clock to wrap up the win. The title for Macchiavello made Expand Against Forward Movement - Sharks And Seals - It Used To Be Knobs And Machines Now Its Numbe the eighth wrestler in Wolfpack history to win at NCAAs, Without You - The Birthday Massacre - Under Your Spell was something no one, except himself, saw coming for the kid from North Carolina who won just one state title in high school.
I was not nationally ranked as a recruit. I had a losing record my LAgeasse - Various - En Poitou year of college. That belief is something that never faltered for Macchiavello, who had an underwhelming record through two years at NC State before taking a redshirt season to work on his technique. The year off panned out well for Macchiavello, who finished the next season and earned a bid to NCAAs, before capping off his career with a national title.
Macchiavello has always been confident, but the ability to believe in himself and know that someone from NC State could win that ultimate prize was helped along by a former teammate: two-time NCAA champion Nick Gwiazdowski.
Now, I find that to be true more than anything else. The biggest thing is believing in yourself. While confidence and belief definitely have driven Macchiavello, there is something to be said about hard work and trusting the process as well, two things Macchiavello preached as reasons for his success.
Developing a process that worked for him, through the help of Gwiazdowski, head coach Pat Popolizio and a number of other resources including a sports psychologist, brought Macchiavello from an unheralded, struggling wrestler to the top of the NCAA wrestling world. Macchiavello fed off that. Now Macchiavello will leave the NC State program with a legacy of fighting and working hard for what he believed he could do.
Macchiavello said coming into college wrestling from North Carolina put a chip on his shoulder from the very start. However, North Carolina is making strides, something Popolizio said starts with the college programs becoming more competitive. Having an NCAA champion from the state will only help push the sport, and the outreach Macchiavello has already received from Wild Women Do - Various - New Woman - Hits From The Chick Flicks Carolina wrestlers shows how much of an impact this championship could have.
Former high school teammates. Macchiavello will now leave State as a decorated champion. As for that wall of national champions that sits outside of the NC State wrestling room, Macchiavello knows exactly where he wants himself put; right next to Gwiazdowski in a spot currently occupied by a picture of the NC State Belltower.
