It's crunch time for OSU wrestler Coleman Scott.

"This is the time of the year you do everything right," Scott said. "You keep your weight good you have to do everything right this time of year to win."

Scott is a three-time All-American and a two-time Big 12 champ, but there seems to be something missing.

"I've got to win the national championship," Scott said.  "I'm not going to be satisfied until I do. I'm just looking forward to March and being on top of that podium."

Scott has inched closer to an individual title every year and finished the 2007 season a runner-up at the NCAA Championships, but he knows time's running out on an illustrious career. 

"I have to be up there. There's no more chances, no more excuses," Scott said.

An accomplishment that would fulfill a life-long dream.

"You see the finals and everything on TV and you say that's where I want to be some day," Scott said. "It's something I've thought about forever."

"I'm just looking forward to March and being on top of that podium."
