Andale's Capul headed to Boise State
Anthony Capul is Boise bound.
Just nine months after winning his first state championship (47-2), the Andale wrestler signed his letter of intent to Boise State.
“It means a lot,” Capul said. “I’ve had a lot of ups and downs with my wrestling career. I had a lot of success this year and I got to some national tournaments and won and it started turning heads with D-I coaches. They knew that I was capable of competing with guys at the D-I and D-II level.”
Capul has battled past two injuries that forced him to miss multiple wrestling seasons, but he's one step closer to living his dream of wrestling at the next level.
The senior had two other D-I offers from Michigan State and Minnesota, but said Boise felt like home.
“It’s a cool part of town," the Indian senior said. "We’re country boys in Andale and that’s how they are out there. They go by the blue-collar motto and I’ve lived my life by that. Nothing has been easy in my life and I’ve had to work for it. That’s the strategy out there. Everything out there fits what it’s like here at home. It’s far, but it’s the same attitude that we have in small-town Kansas.”
