2018-19 Foothill Wrestling Capsule


Head coach: Ryan English, eighth season

Returning lettermen: Eight

Top wrestlers: Robert Silva (Sr.), Jeremy Evans (So.), Cole Kazel (Jr.), Micah Schneider (Jr.), Julian Bradley (Sr.), Conner Crinigan (Jr.)

Outlook: Silva, who likely will wrestle at 120 pounds this season, finished third at 106 pounds in last year’s Class 4A state meet.

“He is ready to get after it,” English said. “We are expecting big things from him this season.”

Evans (126), Kazel (138), Schneider (152) and Bradley (285) also were state meet qualifiers last year and are among eight returning lettermen for the Falcons.

Foothill also should get a boost from 113-pounder Conner Crinigan, a transfer from Florida.

“Foothill will always be a competitor,” English said. “The regions are split up very evenly this season. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out this year. I know one thing for sure – Foothill will be right in the mix as one of the tougher teams.”
