Del Gallo aims to follow brother to wrestling championship

The younger brother of Daniel Del Gallo — the 2017 USM graduate who earned a wrestling national championship — wants to give the Huskies another title.

Peter Del Gallo, a USM sophomore, is currently listed as Number 3 in the country.

"Trying to follow in my brother's footsteps, that's the end goal," Peter Del Gallo told reporter Drew Bonifant of the Kennebec Journal. "Knowing that Daniel did it and being on the same team and watching how he put in the work and how his hard work got him to where he wanted to be, that definitely drives me every day."

In March, Daniel Del Gallo won the Division III national championship at 149 pounds. Read about Daniel Del Gallo here.
