In true Wildcat fashion, teammates help wrestler find balance

Just as a future HVAC professional learns to find just the right thermostat setting for comfort, a Penn College student-athlete relies on his fellow wrestlers to help him calibrate classes and competition. “Balancing your schoolwork and being an athlete is sometimes tricky,” says Charles J. “CJ” Trimber II, in a Wildcat Spotlight video. “But with other people on your team, they help you in pushing you to get your schoolwork done and go to your study halls and get everything that you need to get done to compete.” Spend a few minutes with CJ – a heating, ventilation and air conditioning design technology major from Allegheny County’s Moon Township – who wrestles in the 125-pound class. We can all but guarantee his passion is contagious!
