Throughout the off-season, we’re going to be getting to know returning NCAA Division I wrestlers from around the country. We sent questionnaires to every program in the country and will be sharing the results throughout the long trek to next fall. You can find them all whenever you like under the Getting to Know tag.
Name: Keaton Subjeck
Class (for 2017-18): Redshirt Senior
2016-17 was Subjeck’s third straight year as a starter for the Cardinal. He dropped to 165 after spending his first three years on campus at 174 but didn’t miss a beat. The Oak Ridge High School (CA) product posted a career high 22 wins, made his second trip to the NCAA tournament, and was a member of the Pac-12 All-Academic Second Team for the third consecutive season. His junior campaign got off to a fantastic start when he took down the eventual national champion, Vincenzo Joseph (Penn State), 18-12, in a November dual. With one more year to compete, Subjeck will be looking for more of that as he pushes to become an All-American.
What was the most interesting class you took this year and why?
Android Programming. This class was fun because I learned how to develop apps for mobile Android devices and I was able to show creativity with my projects.
What was your favorite match this season?
My favorite match was against Vincenzo Joseph at Penn State. I didn’t hold anything back and wrestled without fear, and I proved I could beat the best in the country.
If you weren’t a wrestler, is there another sport or competitive activity you’d have pursued?
If I weren’t a wrestler I probably would have continued playing football, or maybe even soccer.
When the season ended, what is the one food you had to eat?
Ice cream. Without a doubt.
What is your major and what would you like to do with it when you graduate?
I’m majoring in Computer Science with a concentration in Human Computer Interaction. When I graduate I want to work as a product manager at a tech firm and eventually start my own company.
