MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – West Virginia University wrestling Coach Craig Turnbull announced that redshirt-junior Brandon Rader will miss the remainder of the 2008-09 season due to an injury he sustained last year.

A Parkersburg, W.Va., native, Rader re-injured his left knee against NCAA runner-up Chad Mendes of Cal Poly on Jan. 2, 2008. Rader received a medical redshirt at the end of the 2007-08 season. He has yet to fully recover from the injury.

Rader is the only true freshman in program history to garner All-American status. A two-time All-American at 141 pounds, he owns a 55-11 overall record.
