One-on-One with Pitt Wrestler Thomusseit

Max Thomusseit Transformation Tuesday.jpg


How have you changed as a wrestler throughout your time here at Pitt?
Thomusseit: "As a freshman, I remember being nervous. I come from a small town so Pittsburgh was a big city to me. To be honest, it was a bit a culture shock. I was extremely nervous even though I had an older brother at Pitt here with me. I quickly learned confidence is the key to winning. I did not have the confidence when I first came to Pitt. Now, when I go into a match, I expect to win. As a freshman you are a little timid, because it's a big jump from high school wrestling to college wrestling. If you can overcome that and gain some confidence in the process - it will help you become a better wrestler.

"Coach Peters is not only a great coach from technical aspects, but he also focuses on the individual person. He helps you not only achieve on the mat, but off the mat. Coach Peters has helped me become the person I am today.

"After five years of being here - you learn so much throughout the process without even realizing it. When I look back now, I really can see how far I have come." 

How have you managed to balance life as a student and a Division I wrestler here at Pitt? 
Thomusseit: "It's difficult to be a student and an athlete, but it's also very doable. I was lucky enough to get five years at Pitt and spread out my education. I also stayed over the summer to take classes. I never had an overload of credits so that definitely helped. The academics comes with being a division I athlete and if you want to do it then you have to commit yourself."

It's your final year and you have experience a lot of great success on the mat, but name your best moment as a Pitt wrestler?
Thomusseit: 
"Definitely winning the first ACC championship is going to stick out the most, because it was a whole team effort. It shows the hard work paid off and the coaches are doing good things here at Pitt. The wrestling program is being run the right way and we are heading in the right direction.

Although, I may be getting ahead of myself, I haven't had success at Nationals so if I could do that this year for myself, the coaches and for Pitt that would mean a lot. Pitt has done so much for me, and I have always wanted to give something back such as winning a national title for Pittsburgh. It's very possible that my favorite moment has not happened yet.
