David Hoffman became Virginia Tech's sixth All-American in wrestling when he took eighth place at the 2006 NCAA Championships at 141 pounds in Oklahoma City.
Hoffman dropped his opening match at the Championships before bouncing back to win four straight, including a last-second win, to earn All-America honors. Hoffman trailed No. 5 seed Josh Churella of Michigan, 6-5, with five seconds left in the match. With the two neutral and in the middle of the mat, Hoffman shot in and got a takedown as the horn sounded to pick up a dramatic win and seal his place in Tech wrestling history as an All-American.
