Outer Circle Sports, the exclusive licensee and distributor of Adidas wrestling products, has signed an agreement with 2 time Hodge Trophy winner David Taylor.
Over the course of his outstanding collegiate career at Penn State University, Taylor was a 2 time Hodge Trophy winner, 2 time NCAA Champion, 4 time Big Ten Champion and 4 time NCAA Finalist. One of the most exciting wrestlers in the history of collegiate wrestling, Taylor amassed an amazing record of 134-3 with 50 pins, 42 Technical Falls and 29 Major Decisions.
David Taylor stated "I am thrilled to join Team Adidas! They have historically made a substantial commitment to wrestling and to supporting wrestling at all levels - from youth to international - and it is obvious that their commitment is stronger than ever. That, more than anything, was the reason why we did this deal. To be with a company like Adidas, and to be able to focus on wrestling as a career, is a dream that I have had since I was wrestling in youth tournaments as a grade-schooler. So, I cannot thank Adidas enough for this opportunity."
Tim Gardner, Managing Partner at Outer Circle stated “We are extremely excited to be teaming up with one of the greatest wrestlers in collegiate history. David brings enthusiasm and style to adidas and it will be reflected in the products he helps to develop. David will be a great addition to our staff of accomplished adidas athletes and a great spokesman for adidas”
Taylor joins adidas athletes Jake Varner, Coleman Scott, Jordan Oliver, Quentin Wright, Jon Reader and Jarod Tice on the adidas wrestling advisory board.
Outer Circle was founded in 2011 by Tim Gardner and Tom Sculley and Drew Seibert. The partners have been in the wrestling products business and involved with the Adidas brand since the early 1990’s.
