The Magic Man Wants To Call You On Christmas Morning

In addition to writing a letter to Santa Claus this holiday season, make sure you tell David Taylor what you want for Christmas, provided it’s a day spent with the two-time NCAA champion and Hodge Trophy winner.

Taylor announced on Instagram Live Monday night that he will be hosting a contest to bring a fan to State College to go through his routine working out with the Nittany Lion Wrestling Club for a day. ScrapLife, Under Armour’s wrestling brand, will fund the winner’s transportation to State College. To apply, fans are invited to tell him about themselves in three sentences, a simple, yet vaguely difficult challenge.

Although you won’t find Taylor wrapped up with a big, red bow under your tree, the one part better than the winner spending a full day with Taylor is how he/she will hear that they won: a phone call from Taylor himself on Christmas morning. That’s what Paul Giamatti movies are made of.

So pick your three sentences carefully because the Magic Man is making a list and checking it twice.
