Defending PIAA champ and Lock Haven commit Tucker Hogan

Tucker Hogan's winning streak is up to 91 matches, but the Daniel Boone senior doesn't focus on that at all.  "You don't think about it. You just take one match at a time. It's been a blessing, but it is what it is. I just wrestle," Hogan told SV Sports' Paul Roberts.  Despite his (45-0) record this season, Hogan still views himself as an underdog.  Other 189-pound wrestlers across Pennsylvania would beg to differ.  Hogan beat Cole Bartram of Northern York 4-0 in last year's Class 3A state final.  They squared off again on Saturday in the District 3-3A championship at Spring Grove.  Hogan came out on top once again with a 9-2 decision.  It's the third District 3 title for the Lock Haven commit.  Hogan and Bartram will be teammates in college.  Hogan said he'll let the coaches decide what weight he wrestles at for the Division I Bald Eagles.  "It's like family up there...I like the small, hometown feel," he replied.  Hogan's high school teammate, Dean Houser, is also headed to Lock Haven.  Houser beat Wilson's McKaden Speece 6-4 for the 127-pound District 3 championship on Saturday.  The head coach at Daniel Boone is Jim Hogan, Tucker's dad.  "Thinking that this is the last time my father is gonna be my coach, you start to love it a lot more than you have in the past," acknowledged Tucker Hogan.  He will take a (151-5) career mark into the PIAA tournament next week at the Giant Center.  When he's not wrestling, Hogan enjoys working on muscle cars.  We'll see if he's able to cruise through the state bracket and bring home another gold medal from Hershey.
