|SHAWN FORD: In clinching his second straight trip to the NCAAs, Ford returns to the scene of his coming-out party. Ford, a former walk-on, shocked the wrestling community in 1996 by defeating defending national champion Jeff McGinness of Iowa in the second round. Ford has proved last season was not a fluke, running up a 29-6 record. He is rated seventh nationally and can boast two wins over Iowa's Mike Mena this season. Ford was runner-up at the Midlands and Pac-10s, falling to CSUB's Coby Wright both times.
