Shippensburg heavyweight Cole Forrester has committed to the United States Air Force Academy to continue wrestling after high school, according to a tweet from the senior on Monday.
Excited to announce my commitment to the United States Air Force Academy to further my academic and athletic career. I can't thank my family, coaches, and friends enough for getting me to this point.

The 220-pounder is currently sitting undefeated at 27-0 on the season with the Greyhounds. He made a state appearance last season and finished fourth in the District 3 Class 3A tournament.
"I'm really excited to commit to the academy," Forrester said. "I think the Air Force Academy is the perfect fit for my athletic and academic career. I'm looking forward to not only receiving a great education, but get the chance to serve my country. It's nice to have the weight off of my shoulders to focus on my postseason run.
"I can't thank my family, coaches, partners and friends enough for their help along the way. It was a very hard decision, but I believe the academy will help shape me into the person I aspire to be."
The Falcons currently sit at 6-4 overall and 1-3 in the Mountain West Conference under head coach Sam Barber.
