Lance Palmer reached the All-America stand at the end of all four seasons wrestling for Ohio State as one of eight four-time All-Americans in school history. He advanced to the 2010 NCAA Championships finals for his highest national finish. Palmer also twice cracked the Top 4, including as a true freshman in 2007.
Postseason success came to fruition at the Big Ten Championships as well. Palmer was not only crowned the 149-pound B1G champ in 2010, but also garnered Most Outstanding Wrestler of the Championships recognition.
The 2010 team captain racked up 121 career victories, ranking in the Top 10 in Ohio State lore. He, too, excelled scholastically and earned the OSU Academic Achievement Award as voted on by the Ohio State faculty and staff.
