Kevin Beazley became the first wrestler with Old Dominion ties to reach the finals of the USA Wrestling U.S. Open championships since Buddy Lee. On Episode 17 of the ODU Wrestling Monarch Matcast, we'll talk with Beazley about his opportunity to possibly represent the U.S. at the World Championships.

Beazley was an NCAA Division I qualifier this past year at 197 pounds and went 27-17. Among the topics we'll discuss are his foundation in freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling and the differences between the styles and the Olympic aspirations that follow.

He also talks about the relationship with his family, the MAC and a rival he's been battling since he was 10 years old.
