Jack McQuaid

The junior 170-pounder, the Catholic League champion last winter, finished first at the recent Upper Merion Viking Classic by pinning all three of his opponents in the first round. As a freshman, he compiled a 28-9 record, and he won 25 matches as a sophomore. He also plays baseball for Archbishop Carroll.

Q: What was the key to your success at the Upper Merion Viking Classic? What was working particularly well for you that day?

A: For me the key to success on that day was keeping a steady head and just executing my moves.

Q: What do you think was your best match of your sophomore year, and why?

A: Last year the best match I wrestled was probably the PCL finals match because it was close the whole match until I got a reversal in the second period, then I rode him out in the third period to win 2-0.

Q: What do you consider your biggest strength and what you are working on most currently?

A: I think my biggest strength is in the top position because that is where I control most of my matches, and right now I’m working to be quicker and better on my feet.

Q: Tell us a little about your pre-match preparation the day of a match.

A: My pre-match preparation is just staying calm before the match and mentally preparing myself for the match.

Q: What do you think you might want to major in at college? Is there a particular career path that interests you?

A: I want to major in business management and administration and hopefully own a company one day.
