The rivalry between these two is an interesting one; interesting enough that in fact, one of the wrestlers specifically requested the other for this match. Biscoglia is a nationally ranked wrestler who was bumped from his high school lineup as a freshman by the eventual state runner-up, Phippen is making the move to Missouri for the next season. This will be the seventh time these two have met in their young careers The last time these two wrestlers met was at the Cadet freestyle national duals when Biscoglia got a first period fall over Phippen. Rest assured Phippen is looking for redemtion and would love to do it on Biscolgia’s home turf in Iowa.
