Sam Mitchell signs to wrestle at the University of Buffalo

MARSHFIELD, Wis. (WSAW) -- Marshfield's Sam Mitchell will be heading to the University of Buffalo. Mitchell currently ranks No. 1 in the state in weight class 195. The senior has never won a state title, but is the favorite heading into this year's individual state tournament. He's worried about this season right now, but he knows Buffalo is the perfect fit.

"Flying out to Buffalo, I didn't know," said Mitchell. "I didn't think I was going to like it. It was far away from friends and family, but they flew me out there. Loved the coaches, love the campus. They had a great culture. I just knew it was where I needed to be. Where I fit best, and I went with my gut and that's where it took me."
