Eggum Tours Athletes Village
June 28, 2017


Head Coach Brandon Eggum recently had an opportunity to tour the Athletes Village construction site. Located just behind the Bierman and Gibson-Nagurski buildings -- technically to the east -- the Athletes Village consists of three new buildings. The most important of these to Gopher Wrestling is the new Land O'Lakes Center for Excellence, which will offer current and future Gopher wrestlers (and all Gopher student-athletes) access to more personal development resources than ever before in a facility that will be among the best in the country.

The Land O'Lakes Center for Excellence will house three critical support areas for Gopher student-athletes: a dramatically expanded and modernized academic center, the department's first central training table and nutrition education center, and an innovative leadership center that will help student-athletes develop the skills they will need to succeed in life after sport.

Gopher Athletics is scheduled to move into the new facilities this coming January.

Whether it's to hear from the latest from Eggum or just for general news about the program, GopherSports.com is your home for all things Gopher Wrestling. Be sure to follow Gopher Wrestling on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates as well.
