No, not THOSE Lakers.
I’d made mention, when we posted the Marcus Zeighler signing photo, that we were waiting to get official word on two kids that were planning to sign with Iowa community colleges — which has, time and time again, been a springboard for tons of Division I talent. Today, I got confirmation on one of those two, as Flagler Palm Coast’s Anthony “Kaz” Maia, the Bulldogs’ Matmen MVP this past season and a two-time state 3A finalist, will attend Iowa Lakes Community College in Estherville, IA, and wrestle for the Lakers.
I’ve had occasion to live and work in that part of the state. It is an absolute hotbed for wrestling. It should be a great way for Maia to continue his education and get himself in front of Division I wrestlers, many of whom start their careers at the same tournaments in which Maia will compete.
Here’s a photo of Maia’s visit, below:
