Biography
Pritzlaff posted his second sixth place finish at the Big Ten Championships this year going 2-2 in the tournament. He entered the tournament as one of Penn State's most outstanding wrestlers and among the favorites to win the title, but after opening the tournament with a pair of major decision wins he dropped a 9-5 decision to Wisconsin's Kevin Wilmot and then was forced to retire due to a knee injury in his consolation match with Minnesota's Zac Taylor. He medically forfeited his fifth place bout. An MRI done on the left kee revealed a tear of the posterior cruciate ligament. Pritzlaff has been making suprising progress in rehabilitating the knee and is listed as possible to compete in the NCAA Championships. If he does so, it would be his second trip to the tournament as he posted an 0-1 mark in his freshman season. He has had a great season to this point posting a 34-4 mark and capturing three tournament titles, including "Outstanding Wrestler" honors at the Penn State Open. He has knocked off nine ranked opponents on the year, including then No.2 ranked Jeff Catrabone 2-1, and his only losses have come to Wilmot and Taylor. He climbed up the polls from a starting spot at No. 6 to reach a peak of No.2 on Jan. 22. He ended the season ranked No. 3 at 167 pounds. He posted an 18-2 dual meet mark and has recorded 11 major decisions and three falls on the year. He captured a University National Freestyle title last summer. At Middletown South High, Pritzlaff claimed three New Jersey state titles and was named to USA Wrestling's 1994 Dream Team. He also claimed four New Jersey state freestyle titles as well as the 1994 National Espoir Freestyle title and 1993 National Freestyle Championship.
