North Allegheny senior Jon Hoover signed his letter of intent to continue his wrestling career at the collegiate level at the Virginia Military Institute. VMI is a Division I wrestling program in the Southern Conference.

Hoover posted a record of 35-7 as junior last season and garnered a silver medal at the Section 3-AAA individual wrestling tournament at 160 pounds. As a result, he qualified for the WPIAL individual tournament as well. Hoover enters his senior season with 74 career wins and hopes to reach the 100-win plateau this winter.

Overall, Hoover is a three-time regional qualifier and NHSCA All-American (160 pounds.) He also received the Tough Tiger Award last year from the North Allegheny coaching staff.

Hoover will wrestle at 170 pounds for his senior season before pursuing a degree in Political Science at VMI. He is pictured above with his father, John.
