Eric Morrill is in his fourth year as the volunteer assistant coach for the Hokie wrestling program. He completed a successful collegiate career in 2011 at Edinboro University, where he was a top-flight lightweight wrestler. The Sandown, N.H., native was a three-time NCAA National qualifier who posted a 90-45 record for his career.
After wrestling his first three seasons at 125 pounds, Morrill bumped up to 133 pounds for his senior season, where he went 24-10 and qualified for Nationals. After posting a 35-26 record over his first two seasons, Morrill redshirted in 2008-09 before returning to the mat for his final two seasons. As a junior, he went 31-9 and finished third at the EWL Championships.
Morrill assists with on-mat training with the lightweights, and will also help out with various other duties with the Tech program. In his three seasons at Virginia Tech, he has directly worked with All-Americans Devin Carter (141), Joey Dance (125), Nick Brascetta (149), Jarrod Garnett (125) and Zach Neibert (141).
