  1. Seth Littrell The wrestler: Kurt Angle The shoot: Angle was a legitimate wrestler who won a gold medal (with a broken freaking neck). Littrell was a two-time state champion wrestler in Oklahoma as a high schooler, and I can guarantee you one thing: The state of Oklahoma takes amateur wrestling seriously. I wouldn’t mess with either one of those dudes. link: https://www.texasfootball.com/article/2022/05/24/texas-fbs-coaches-as-professional-wrestlers?ref=home_feature_article
