HARTLAND — There's only one question, with Arrowhead's Keegan O'Toole.

"Going for the super big," Arrowhead Director of Wrestling and Assistant Coach Randy Ferrell says.

O'Toole is 43-0. He hasn't lost a Wisconsin match in more than two years and can become the 18th wrestler in state history to win four individual titles.

"I was 8...and I went to the state tournament. And I said wanna stand out...I set the goal, 4-time state champ," O'Toole says.

Lance Allan asks "what is the best trait?" Randy Ferrell says without hesitation, "patience."

Oh yeah. And at 160 pounds. He's number one in the nation.

"It's really cool," O'Toole says.

His best piece of advice came from the great fellow Warhawks wrestler and MMA Champion Ben Askren.

"It was a pivotal meet...and he said don't be afraid to be spectacular," O'Toole recalls.

The walls of the Warhawks wrestling room, lined with state champs and greats. But O'Toole wants to be greater. Shooting for four NCAA Championships. when he heads to the University of Missouri, and the Olympics.

Lance Allan asks "do you think he can be an Olympian? "Sky's the limit for him," Arrowhead Head Coach Jeremy Miller says.

Lance Allan asks "do you picture the Olympics? "I wouldn't put it past him," Ferrell says.

Lance Allan asks "what are your future plans? "Not the UFC...I don't like getting punched in the face...but the Olympics in 2024 or 2028," O'Toole says.
