Another Granville Wrestling Milestone

103 and counting

Ask Brendan Miller about reaching the 100-win milestone for his career as a Granville Golden Horde wrestler and you might be left with the wrong impression.

“It felt just like any other win,” Miller said when asked about joining teammates Karl Palmer and Eric Hastings with 100-plus wins over the span of his career. It’s not that the win wasn’t special, it had just been eclisped by a Class C title and the Civic Center was just away.

At Mechanicville at 125 pounds, away from the school where only teammates and a few family members witnessed the feat, his 100 wins lacked the drama Hastings’ final match on a Wasaren League clinching night. Like a lot of what Miller does on the mat, it’s impressive, but not showy.

Miller moved up from his regular season weight and claimed his first C title with an 11-3 decision over Mike Mattat of Hoosick Falls. For him it was the C title and what potentially lies beyond it that meant more to him.

“I didn’t know how well I was going to do at 130,” he said. “At first the weight was kind of unbearable because I jumped up from weighing in around 123, but I just tried my hardest and that’s what I always do,” Miller said.

Hard work and determination are overused when it comes to stories about wrestling, but it makes them no less appropriate.

“He’s worked really hard, he’ll go and do extra work after practice and it showed on the mats today,” Golden Horde Head Coach Steve Palmer said.
