Brandon Glover 1959 All-American 130 pounds
Site: Iowa City, Iowa

Brandon Glover, from Norfolk, Va., became Tech’s first All-American in wrestling when he took third place in the 130-pound weight class at the 1959 NCAA Championships in Iowa City.

A four-time Southern Conference champion (1957-60), Glover went undefeated in his career except in the semifinals of those championships.

For his career, the Granby High graduate went 26-0 in career dual meets and was a 1988 inductee into the Virginia Tech Sports Hall of Fame.
