“If I wrestled Terry Brands and Thomas Gilman at the same time…I would beat em”~Sammy Brooks
Sammy Brooks is not only known for his hilarious mullet interview with Big Ten Network after winning the Big Ten Wrestling Championships at 184 lbs this last year, he is also known for being a warrior on the mat. Mal Ad Osteo!
For the University of Iowa, Sammy was a two-time Big Ten Champion at 184 lbs and a two-time NCAA Division 1 wrestling All-American. His overall career record at Iowa was 102-24, all of which was done while sporting a well groomed and feathered mullet. However, after finding it difficult to manage a magnificent mullet and wanting a new beginning, the mullet went bye-bye after his last collegiate wrestling match.
Our interview with Sammy Brooks was loaded with serious questions such as: Who would win between him and King Kong if they wrestled? strategy? If he wrestled Terry Brands and Thomas Gilman at the same time who would he try and take out first? What are his preparation weeks and days before big matches and his mindset?
