Questions for Coach Fisher
Q: It’s great to see that Fauquier has six guys that will be wrestling this season – any reflection? "Absolutely. One of my primary goals is to prepare the guys while they are in high school for success at the collegiate level."
Q: It seems that both Raines and Tingen should be starting for George Mason Univ. – any thoughts about that? "We have a great relationship with George Mason and no doubt the success of previous Fauquier wrestlers Greg Flournoy and Ryan Hunsberger paved the way for Matt and Garrett. Being as close as Mason is to Fauquier, we will hopefully be able to catch some of their matches."
As the year just now getting underway we wish all the very best of luck and hope the winning continues. More information can be found in our In College NOW section > >
