Penn State’s Mark Hall Joins Pennsylvania RTC

Recently graduated Mark Hall has made his decision where to continue his wrestling career. Hall has decided to join Pennsylvania Regional Training Center.

Hall was one of the best in the country before the COVID pandemic. Mark Hall was also a two time Junior World freestyle champion. Hall also made the quarterfinals at the 2016 Olympic Team Trials.

Mark Hall on joining PRTC

On November 11th, 2015, at only 18 years old, I made the biggest decision of my wrestling career. It was that day that I made a commitment to sign with Pennsylvania State University and become a Nittany Lion.

Since making that decision, I have not regretted a second at Penn State. Being a part of this Blue & White family has been an absolute dream come true. For four years I pursued my goal of being the best wrestler I could be on the best team in the country. Three Team Titles and an individual NCAA Championship later, I can say I did just that.

I am and will always be proud to be a Nittany Lion. My last four years wearing that bold white stripe across my waist was nothing short of iconic. As the saying goes, nobody loves Penn State like Penn State loves Penn State.

Throughout my life, I have moved around the country to find the best living and training environment to grow as a competitor, and to be a part of something great. From Apple Valley to Happy Valley, I have always been a “team first” kind of man.

And I know my next stop will be no different.

2020 has been difficult to say the least. Countless seniors watched helplessly as their folkstyle careers came to an abrupt end. My head has been in so many places, but my heart is still in wrestling. I’ve decided to continue my freestyle career, but in a new home.

I will be joining the Pennsylvania Regional Training Center in Philadelphia in January of 2021.

I am committed to giving my 100% effort and attitude as the newest member of the PRTC. Their vision for their athletes reaches far beyond wrestling, and I believe the PRTC will put me in position to be the best wrestler in the world, and continue my quest to be a champion on and off the mat.

Faith Over Fear,
Mark Hall II”
