Binghamton wrestling adds Borshoff as assistant coach

VESTAL, N.Y.—Binghamton University wrestling has filled out its coaching staff with the hiring of Jasen Borshoff, a former NCAA qualifier and Academic All-American from American University.

Borshoff joins head coach Pat Popolizio’s staff after a stellar collegiate career at American University. He was a four-time EIWA placewinner and 2008 NCAA qualifier before graduating cum laude in 2008. Borshoff was a two-time Academic All-American and received his bachelor’s degree in health promotion with a 3.6 grade-point average. He was a six-time Dean’s List honoree and helped the Eagles produce the highest wrestling GPA in the nation two times and second-highest another year.

“Jasen will have an immediate impact on our wrestling program,” Popolizio said. “He is an accomplished wrestler and will bring discipline, character and a strong work ethic to Binghamton University. He will work predominantly with the light weights. I am looking forward to having him this year and the strides our program will make by adding such a creditable person to our staff.”

After graduation, Borshoff worked as a sales associate with Biometrics, a nutrition and fitness company in Maryland, and also was a health coodinator at Virginia Hospital Center.

A Rochester native, Borshoff won 180 scholastic matches and went unbeaten in four years of dual matches. He was a four-time county finalist and sectional champion for Pittsford Sutherland. His father, Tim, was a standout wrestler at Binghamton in the 1970s and was inducted into the University’s Hall of Fame in 2001.

The Bearcats open their 2010-11 season by hosting the Binghamton Open on November 14.
