Former North Pulaski Falcons wrestler Jared Pflasterer will sign a letter of intent to compete for the Central Baptist College Mustangs in Conway.

Pflasterer will sign at the college at 11 a.m. today.

This is the first year for collegiate wrestling in Arkansas and Pflasterer is the first from the area to sign to wrestle at the next level.

Pflasterer is a product of the Tony Mongno-coached North Pulaski program that was state runner-up in the 1A-5A classification in 2009 with Pflasterer’s help. Pflasterer reached the final of the 285-pound division and lost in a fall to Gentry’s Connor Willett.

Central Arkansas Christian edged out North Pulaski by 26 points for the 2009 team championship but the Falcons were only able to fill eight of the 14 weight divisions.
