Former West Virginia Wrestler Added To Roster
Daggert, a 184-pound wrestler from Williamstown, W.Va., competed in several open tournaments last season for the Mountaineers.
"Chris is a seasoned wrestler with Division I experience," stated Castro. "I believe he can be an impact wrestler for our program."
Daggert, who will have three years of eligibility with the Flames' program, is a graduate of Parkersburg High School where he was a West Virginia state champion and a three-time state place winner.
"Chris has a Division I training mentality," continued Castro. "It is hard to succeed on this level without a passion to train and Chris has just that."
"I had been contemplating transferring from WVU for some time before I was asked to consider attending Liberty University," said Daggert. "Before attending, I was unsure about it. But now I have found this transfer to be a blessing! This school and the wrestling program have helped me better myself physically and spiritually."
Daggert and the Flames officially return to the mats on November 5 when Liberty opens up its 2006-07 season at a quad match hosted by Virginia Tech that will include Liberty, Virginia Tech, Anderson and Gardner-Webb in Blacksburg, Va.
