Default Jets Looking At Freestyle Wrestlers Konrad, Rowlands

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/05/13/sp...8800&en=36f586

snippet:
The Jets coach who was conducting the position meeting Saturday kept referring to Will, Mike and Sam, and every time he did, Cole Konrad felt more lost, like someone trying to follow a conversation about Tony, Paulie and Christopher despite having never watched “The Sopranos.”

Konrad, one of eight offensive linemen invited to the Jets’ rookie/free agent camp, eventually turned to the player seated next to him and asked who this Mike guy was, which is how he came to learn the football terminology for middle linebacker.

“I just have to ask,” Konrad said, “even if I feel dumb doing it.”

Konrad, who was recently named the University of Minnesota’s male athlete of the year, is a freestyle wrestler who is ranked No. 2 in the United States in the 264.5-pound division, according to USA Wrestling. He has not played football since an undistinguished stint on the offensive line of his freshman team in high school.

The top-ranked American in Konrad’s weight class is Tommy Rowlands, a four-time all-American at Ohio State who is now an assistant coach for the Buckeyes’ wrestling team. Rowlands, who defeated Konrad in the final of the United States National Championships last month in Las Vegas, is Konrad’s roommate here this weekend. He received an invitation to try out at linebacker.
