Bryce Steiert, UNI junior wrestler (’18-19)


Eric: The Panther wrestling program has a stacked lineup this season that is expected to have a lot of success in 2019 in the remaining duals as well as at the NCAA Championships. Back in the lineup after redshirting last season is 2 time NCAA qualifier Bryce Steiert. Bryce Steiert made a
statement on day 1 of his collegiate
wrestling career. He was the first true
freshman to start at UNI since former All American
Joey Lazor in 2010 and he wasted little time
breaking into the national rankings at 157 pounds. He beat 10th ranked Luke
Smith en route to a 2nd place finish at the MAC
Championships and earned the automatic bid to
the NCAA Tournament. As a sophomore he moved up
a weight to 165 pounds and once again was nationally
ranked with wins over several top 10 wrestlers. He took 2nd at the
MAC Championships and qualified for his 2nd
straight NCAA tournament. Last season Bryce decided
to take a step back from competition to train and
gain perspective on the sport that he loves. A lot of reflecting on years past and years ahead just realizing just how much this sport means to me and sitting on the sidelines or the bench and seeing and feeling how much the team means to me and how much you want to be out there helping them that is bringing it all together with the last year and that is the main thing is just how much the team means to me. His teammates are excited to have a bigger Bryce Steiert back in the lineup for his junior season. He is so much stronger. I think the best way to describe him is he is just a brick house. And his work load is so high. He can go for days. I wrestled against him one weekend and he just beat the bricks off me and didn’t even look like he was tired and I was like “gee I haven’t got a butt whipping like that for a few years” just like one of those life changing ones almost. But I’m super excited to have him in the lineup at 165 I can piggy back right off him and hopefully Foster can piggy back off me and then Hog and Isley and hope it is just a domino effect. This business administration major is off to a strong start this season with multiple wins over top 20 competitors. But he is determined to be wrestling at this peak in February and March when it matters most. You put yourself in tough situations whether it is practice situations or on the mat and you get better from it and I feel like over the 10 year span or even just my time at UNI I feel like I have constantly developed every year and that was a lot of it last year was getting better every year and this was another one to maximize myself and put the best product out there for this team. There are 4 home duals remaining on the Panther wrestling schedule. It is a wonderful opportunity to watch some future All-Americans competing for the University of Northern Iowa. Bryce is explosion and just a performer, grinder, always fun to watch, puts up a lot of points, and wrestles hard for the full 7 minutes. He is a killer. I know if I had to pick one guy on the team that I didn’t want to wrestle it would be him and I’m glad I’m a 141 pounder and he’s too big for me to wrestle because he is just an absolute physical speciman for one and he just has the attitude to go along with it. He has the heaviest hips in the country. I know he is one of the hardest workers in the country and he has really motivated me and he is going to shock everyone this year and he is going to win it too.
