Wetterau has learned well, compiling a 22-3 record with 12 pins this season.
"A part of him being a quality student is that he pays attention to details in the academic environment," Mann said. "I think that helps to translate over to how he does it athletically, as well. There are a lot of different details that go into doing the things we do in wrestling.
"He listens to us tell him about the details, and he goes out and carries them out as well."
Wetterau entered Shawnee as a strong wrestler, winning 23 matches as a freshman, and he improved each year. He won 30 matches as a sophomore and 37 as a junior, constantly reevaluating himself.
"Coming in freshman year, I was a pretty good wrestler but I realized pretty quickly that I'd have to change things," Wetterau said. "I realized I wasn't going to win big-time matches or important matches wrestling the way I was wrestling.
"The strides I made improving wrestling were definitely adapting, because of the time I've taken to learn to change my style."
Next fall, Wetterau will continue his wrestling and academic career at Bucknell, a school that will satisfy both his interests.
"A lot of the schools I talked to and had interest in were strong academic schools," said Wetterau, who chose Bucknell over Davidson and Franklin and Marshall. "The decision I made was pretty much 50-50 between academics and athletics."
Wetterau's attention to detail and his ability to think and adapt have led to most of his success in the classroom and on the mat.
"He does all these different things to break the stereotype of a wrestler," Mann said. "It's fun to see, because there are people who see and perceive the sport as the sport of the unintelligent.
"In reality, you're better off when you are intelligent."
