Lou DePrez looks to build upon freshman year success
November 07, 2019


For the Binghamton wrestling team, the upcoming season represents a chance to build upon last year’s successful campaign and cement itself as a top program in the nation. After a strong freshman year, one individual on the team, redshirt sophomore Lou DePrez, has the potential to achieve stardom as he looks to become an All-American or national champion this season.

DePrez was the only Bearcat to advance to the second day of the NCAA Championships last March. The then-freshman turned in a 3-2 record and an impressive stint in the consolation rounds after losing to the eventual champion of the 184-pound bracket. However, he said his failure to claim a national championship or All-American title taught him lessons and became motivation during his offseason workouts.
