Former Laker Christman earns All-American status for Tiffin

“I feel it’s a pretty cool accomplishment,” said Christman, who is a sophomore for the Dragons. “Division II is considered by a lot of people to be the toughest it has ever been in all weight classes this year. So in terms of that, it’s a pretty cool accomplishment.
