Years at Cal Lutheran: 1971-1973

Steve Magruder was a wrestler at California Lutheran College from 1971 through 1973, making his biggest impact in his first year after transferring from El Camino Junior College.

As a sophomore transfer, he burst onto the scene finishing first at the NAIA District 3 Championships and earned an invitation to the NAIA National Championships where he went on to finish in fourth place and earn All-American honors.

Magruder wrestled only part of his junior and senior seasons due to knee and collarbone injuries but was still named to the Outstanding College Athletes of America in 1973. At the time of his induction, he remained the only Cal Lutheran wrestler to ever be named All-American.
