ERIE, Pa. – The Mercyhurst University wrestling program announced the signing of Jacob Robb, the 16th ranked 220 pounder in the country according to Flo Wrestling. Robb is currently a senior at newly formed Armstrong High School, an institution developed after the merger between Ford City and Kittanning High Schools.

On the mat, Robb will bring Head Coach Mike Wehler, who is entering his ninth season with the program, another force to an already juggernaut squad. Robb's accomplishments throughout his high school athletic career are far from ordinary. In his three years at Kittanning, he held a 110-24 overall record, was a three time section champion, was the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League (WPIAL) runner-up in 2014, WPIAL Champion in 2015, placed fifth as a sophomore at states and was the runner-up in the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League in 2015. Robb also earned Flo-Nationals All-American status (2015), National High School Coaches Association (NHSCA) All-American status (2015) and was a member of two National Championship teams for both Disney and NHSCA in 2014 and 2015.

During the fall, Robb is also a member of the football team, where he has started on both offense and defense for the Wildcats the past three seasons, earning All-Conference as a defensive end in 2013 and 2014. He was also honored as the team's Most Valuable Player (MVP) on defense.

Robb will join the Lakers program for the 2016-17 season, where he will project as a heavyweight.
