NCWA Preseason Rankings

(Edited to include Daniel Devers)

Four collegiate wrestlers with area connections are ranked in the top 15 in their respective weight classes among 2016-17 NCWA competitors, according to preseason rankings that came out midweek this week.

Cole Schreiber (Columbia ’13) is beginning the preseason ranked #11 at 141 pounds for the University of Florida NCWA team. Schreiber was a 2A state finalist for the Tigers in 2013 and is a senior at Florida.

UNF senior Dean Porreca is ranked 14th for the Ospreys at 184. Porreca is the only UNF wrestler to receive a preseason national ranking.

Rory Roderick (Oakleaf ’13) is ranked 15th for South Florida’s club team at 125. As a senior for the Knights, Roderick was one match short of the state tournament. He is a senior this year for the Bulls.

Finally, Daniel Devers, who started his high school career at Columbia but later moved out of state, is ranked ninth as a sophomore for Middle Tennessee, also at 184.

Among teams, Central Florida stands in 2nd place among NCWA Division 1 teams, with Florida tied for seventh and South Florida tied for 9th. In Division 2, Florida A&M is tied for 13th place.



I covered wrestling for 15 years up north and "retired" in 2011. But as I thought I had in 1992, I couldn't stay away. Started Northeast Florida Matmen in 2013, Northwest Florida Matmen in 2015. New initiative this year is to create a space on my sites where ALL Florida results can be stored, searched, reviewed and used by my readers, with NO COST TO THEM.
