HAMPTON, VA-For close to 35 years Rider head coach Gary Taylor has been turning young high school kids into national-caliber collegiate wrestlers by using an old philosophy; 'the hottest fires makes the strongest steel.'

Taylor took his young Broncs down to the 33rd annual Virginia Duals Friday, where Rider won one of three matches in plenty of heat.

"We brought a lot of young wrestlers down here and this was certainly a learning experience for them," Taylor said.  "It was very good for them to see what is out there. Wrestling against the best sends a very good message to them."

Junior Ramon Santiago (Sayreville, N.J./Sayreville), ranked 16th in the nation, won twice before losing to the 17th ranked wrestler in the nation. "That was a tight match between two top 20 wrestlers that could have gone either way," Taylor said. "It was back-and-forth and both of them showed a lot in that match. It was a good match."

This morning Santiago collected a 6-0 victory against Arizona State that gave Rider a 16-9 lead.

Against the top seeded team, 10th ranked Central Michigan, Santiago recorded Rider's only victory. "We couldn't do much damage against Central Michigan," Taylor said.

Sophomore Jimmy Morris (Northport, NY/St. Anthony's) and sophomore Vinny Fava (Elmwood Park, N.J./Elmwood Park) also won twice. "Those two wrestled pretty well," Taylor said.

Morris collected a pin against Arizona State.

Junior James Brundage (Ossining, N.Y./Ossining) won by fall in just 37 seconds against Buffalo to cut the lead to 13-12. "That was the key to the win," Taylor said.  "It was a good scramble and James came up with a headlock and pinned the kid. We needed that."

Freshman Curt Delia (Mullica Hill, NJ/Delsea) won a major decision against Arizona State and Fava picked up a win against the Sun Devils.

Freshman Greg Velasco (Union Beach, NJ/Keyport) won 3-1 for the final score vs. Buffalo. "Greg did a nice job," Taylor said.  "That was real key for us."

Sophomore Donald McNeil (Plainville, Mass./Wyoming Seminary), Brundage and Velasco all lost to nationally ranked wrestlers from Arizona State.

"We competed pretty hard in a very physical tournament," Taylor said.  "This learning experience will help us get ready for the conference championships.  It shows our young wrestlers exactly how tough this sport is at the higher levels, and it is good for them to learn that."
