Although Werner's record speaks for itself, he owned several incredible stats which do greater justice to his excellence:
Nine of his 38 career bouts came vs. four rivals who became NCAA champions, including Navy's greatest-ever wrestler, Pete Blair, a 2-time champion. Four of Seel's six career losses came against Blair--another vs. Penn St NCAA champion, Bill Oberle.
Werner was 2-1-1 vs. Oberle and also defeated PSU's Hud Samson, who won NCAAs at 191. In addition, he scored wins by fall in 17 bouts for a career rate of 45%, one of Lehigh's top three pin rates since 1950.
