This shit is beautiful. Very proud of Myles and I'm just a random fan. Can't image the pride his pops feels. Going to miss that guy

It's nice to hear that Snyder, Stieber, and the others are around to show the young grapplers on the team what it takes to be champions on the mat and in life.  

Great OSU career, MyMar!

Reaffirming my respect for MyMar and all he has accomplished, but I'm moved by Greg Martin's unwavering support for his son in good times and bad.

Got M...igan gossip? Bang it here.

Some smoke just flew in my eye!  Greg Martin is a man a really admire.  And Myles Martin is a future world champion, at least to me anyway.

Pretty awesome.  Easy to see why we get quality kids with parents like this.

I truly hate the way things ended for Myles, but man what a run. The guy is a Buckeye wrestling legend.

Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.

One of my favorite buckeyes of all time regardless of sport. Jaggers, Snyder, Nato and Mymar have help make the Buckeyes a wrestling juggernaut/powerhouse. I will never forget Mymar beating Bo Nickel and winning the national championship his freshman yr. Right up there with the 02 and 15 football championship for me. Myles celebrating with his dad after winning the championship will be etched into my memory forever! Thanks Myles for being a great ambassador not only for the University but for the sport of wrestling as well.

If you think about it, that championship prevented Nickal from being a 4 time champ. That makes that one of the most enormous victories in college wrestling history!

I'd also like to add that Myles was right there with Mark Hall in high school. Zahid as well. Add in the Nickal matches and you can see that Myles was competing against some of the best of his generation and losing close or winning a few big ones. Of course this year he got overconfident, but that will serve him well moving forward I think and hope.
