Zach said he is back to 100 percent after he also missed the summer with an elbow injury while Keegan wrestled in the Junior & Cadet Nationals in Fargo, N.D.
“Last year I didn't get to (compete in state and nationals) and I sat up in the stands with the spectators, and that drives me to work even harder in the wrestling room because every time I'm down I remember that moment,” Zach said.
Ferguson said the twins are showing more maturity this season and he expects big things from them this season and in the future.
But for now that taste of last season is all that remains.
“You get that taste and it's not a good taste at all,” Hardell said.
