Jesse Delgado Signs On With C-RTC

Per C-RTC Release:

AMES, Iowa – Today Cyclone Regional Training Center Director, Kevin Dresser, announced the addition of Jesse Delgado as a Resident Athlete of the C-RTC. Prior to the C-RTC, Delgado had been training with the Illinois Regional Training Center.

“We have the unique opportunity to hire Jesse as a resident athlete in the short term with the hopes to possibly transition him into a coaching position in 2020,” Dresser said. “Jesse’s wrestling resume speaks for itself. He is a guy who loves to get on the mat and train. He also has a passion to coach in the very near future. I think he will be a great fit for our entire program.

“I am super excited to start this chapter of my life,” Delgado said. “The entire Cyclone Wrestling program really excites me.”

Delgado comes to Ames with a long list of wrestling accolades. As a collegiate wrestler, he was one of the nation’s top 125-pounders all four years while wrestling for the University of Illinois.

He was a two-time NCAA Champion while competing for the Illini, and earned All-America honors on three occasions. He was twice a Big 10 Champion and was named the Most Outstanding Wrestler at the 2013 Big 10 Championships.

Delgado will begin training in Ames in mid-August.
