Liberty University Head Wrestling Coach Jesse Castro has announced the signing of Julian Colon to a national letter of intent to join the Flames' roster for the upcoming 2007-08 season. 

"I have known Julian for three years having worked with him at the 'Athletes in Action' wrestling camps in New Jersey," commented Castro. He has had success in one of the toughest states in the country for wrestling, and will bring us needed depth in the middle weight classes. Liberty is a great fit for Julian. " 

Colon comes to Liberty from Hempfield High School in Landisville, Pa., where he finished his career with a 106-27 record on the mats (79.6 winning percentage). As a senior, he ranked 17th nationally and was named Most Outstanding Wrestler by the Lancaster-Lebanon PA League. 

"I am excited to be wrestling on the team for Liberty and I look forward to what God has in store for me as a wrestler and a physical education teacher," state Colon. 

Colon, son of Eser and Heather Colon, is a Pennsylvania state qualifier. Prior to joining the Flames' roster in the fall, he will be taking his second tour in China with Athletes in Action where he will help with the country's preparation for hosting the 2008 Summer Olympics. 

Colon, who intends to major in kinesiology at Liberty, is the second signee for Castro during the spring signing period. He joins Chandler Wiseman who signed with the Flames in April.
