Pat Downey Story Continues

Story by Ross Bartachek

The wait may finally be over. Almost five months after we learned of Pat Downey’s decision to transfer to the University of Iowa the end may be nearing as the wrestler posted two photos on his social media account that would point to him being able to join the wrestling team.

On Friday night, Pat Downey tweeted the following message: “[Shout out] 2 all the haters, fakes, phonies, pretenders, & non believers cuz yall fuel my fire! & thank u 2 everyone who has supported me on my journey. so much adversity has been overcome to receive this letter & i am beyond blessed to begin this next chapter of my life!

The tweet was accompanied with a picture of a University of Iowa letter dated January 11, 2018. The letter can be summarized as what looks to be Downey’s recommendation to be admitted to Iowa’s Master of Science program for the Spring 2018 semester. Iowa’s semester of classes will begin on Tuesday, January 16th.
