Popolizio Talks Up Hayden Hidlay for 2017-18 Season

| April 21, 2017 | 0 Comments

North Carolina State head coach Pat Popolizio expects big things from Hayden Hidlay when he comes off redshirt for the 2017-18 season.

Popolizio, speaking on the NC State Athletics website had this to say about the 2016 PIAA state champion from Mifflin County:

Q: Who are some redshirts from 2016-17 that fans will be seeing competing next year?

Popolizio: I think you will be seeing some very exciting wrestling out of Hayden Hidlay. His style and his mentality is going to be very fun to watch. He is a very dominate wrestler who will compete right away with the best in his weight class. As a freshman he will have some ups and downs during the season because it is long and grueling, but I think after he redshirted this past year and his background coming in, he knows what to expect. He will do some big things for us next year, we expect him to be at 157.
