A former high school national champion, Ziad Haddad fell into the fire of academic ineligibility at the end of his redshirt freshman campaign. Now the Pennsylvania native is back on the mat, riding a four-match win streak and ranked No. 21 in the nation after regaining it. Haddad was born a competitor.
