Daniel Mika: The biggest factors were the wrestling program, the great academics, and the school size.

GoMason: What would you say is your favorite thing about George Mason?

Mika: I really enjoy the freedom and the new people I've met here the most.

GoMason: What are some things you looking forward to now that you are wrestling at the collegiate level?

Mika: I am most looking forward to seeing myself progress and become better and better each day at a new level.

GoMason: How has practice and training been so far this season?

Mika: Both have been really great so far. I like who I work with in practice, and I appreciate the training we do outside of the wrestling room.

GoMason: What kind of goals do you have for the upcoming season?

Mika: I have two main goals besides improving as much as possible. Firstly, I want to earn the spot at 174. Secondly, I want to qualify for the NCAA's.

GoMason: Which meets are you looking forward to the remainder of the season?

MIka: I prefer to just take things as they come because I find when I start looking so far ahead I tend to be distracted from the training in the present. What is one thing you would like people to know about you?

Mika: I will do the best I can.
