Piedmont: Brantley Pyle video...
By Robert Przybylo
Everybody goes to the state tournament believing they can win the championship. But even Piedmont’s Brantley Pyle had to be pretty shocked with his victory.
The Wildcat senior had never qualified for state before and somehow found a way as a senior. Pyle was one of four Piedmont wrestlers to qualify for state.
He quietly goes unnoticed and makes the championship at 135 pounds against Tuttle’s Dallas Gracey. From the get go, Pyle was extremely aggressive.
Pyle took the early and lead and then scored an escape to make it 5-4 early in the third. He could hardly contain his excitement, but he held on to become only the second champ ever from Piedmont, joining 2000 heavyweight Dustin Gilles.
Here is a short video of his win (minus audio because I’m an idiot).
