30. Jarod Trice

One of the most entertaining personalities in state history, Doughboy was a three-time state finalist for Highland Park, winning titles in his junior and senior seasons.  He had a ton of success on the national scene as well, winning double FILA/UWW Cadet titles in '06, placing 3rd in Cadet Greco in '05, 4th in Junior Freestyle in '07, and wining Senior Nationals in '07.

At CMU, he won a MAC title in 2011 and racked up three NCAA All-American honors - 8th in 2010, 4th in 2011, and 6th in 2013.  He also won the Midlands Championships twice.  Trice added three University National titles, doubling up in 2010 and winning Greco again in 2015, which earned him OW honors as well.

Trice continued to compete in his post-collegiate career in both Freestyle and Greco, and then made a transition into fighting.  He went 4-0 fighting for Bellator.

29. David Morgan

Morgan prepped at Ferndale HS, where he won a Class A state title in 1993 after placing 3rd as a junior and 4th as a sophomore.  He then began his collegiate career wrestling for Morgan State University in Baltimore, qualifying for the NCAA tournament in 1994.

A year later he would transfer back to his home state and finished out his career at Michigan State.  Morgan was a three-time All-American for the Spartans, placing 3rd in 1996, 5th in 1997, and 2nd in 1998.  He also won three Big Ten titles and compiled a record of 129-10 over three years.  His 129 wins put him 3rd all-time for MSU, and he holds the top spot for most wins in a season (44), which he accomplished twice.
