Paul Donahoe, who gained notoriety after being kicked off the University of Nebraska wrestling team after posing naked for a gay porn site, capped off a perfect regular season by winning the 125-pound title at the Eastern Wrestling League tournament this weekend.
Donahoe, who now wrestles for powerhouse Edinboro in northwestern Pennsylvania, breezed to the title with a 17-7 win the semifinals and a technical fall 24-9 in the final. He finished the conference season at 31-0 and was ranked as the top 125-pounder in the nation.
Donahoe will wrestle for the national title at the NCAA tournament in St. Louis March 19-21. In 2007, while at Nebraska, he won the 125-pound national title. By all accounts, he has fit in well at Edinboro and I am rooting for him to take another title.
