Gilman is a hard-nosed brawler that breaks almost every opponent that he faces. His warrior-like wrestling style involves controlling the center, pushing the pace and punishing his opponent.
Thomas was not born with his mental and physical toughness but insists that he developed it through hard training and discipline. Because of this perspective, Thomas tells young wrestlers to, "not be afraid of adversity, because it is only through adversity that we grow."
Gilman has faced some adversity in his career, but it has helped him grow and come to train at the Nittany Lion Wrestling Club along with many of the other members of the Scraplife squad. Thomas is an outdoorsy guy, who is always doing projects outside. He raises chickens and has two german shepherds.
There is no doubt that Thomas will be ready to make the Olympic team this spring by dragging his opponents into a war.
Scraplife is happy to have Thomas Gilman and his warrior spirit on the Squad.
