Fillingames sign with Chadron State

Sultana brothers Jeremy Fillingame and Ryan Fillingame didn’t originally have plans to wrestle together in college.

In fact, Jeremy wasn’t even sure that he was going to wrestle next season, and was even contemplating going to a trade school.

Then Division II Chadron State offered both of them full-ride scholarships, and the brothers signed national letters of intent for next season.

“I thought Ryan would do his own thing, but I liked the idea of us going to the same school,” Jeremy said.

Ryan, who placed sixth at senior nationals this past year, also had offers from Adams State, Mesa State and Luther College. He also placed seventh at the state championships as a junior, won a Masters title and his second CIF-Southern Section Individual championship as a senior and claimed three league titles during his prep career.

Jeremy was a two-time Masters qualifier, two-time MRL champ and a state qualifier as a senior. He also grabbed a CIF-Southern Section Individual title this past season.

The Fillingame brothers will join former Sultana standout Zac Sweeney on the wrestling team at Chadron State, which is located in Chadron, Neb.
