Individually, he was a three-time champion in both the EWL and the PSAC, and was the EWL Tournament Most Outstanding Wrestler award winner in 2007.  

 
Gillespie began his college career with a bang, winnig his first 23 matches on the way to a 40-4 record which is the most wins by a freshman in school history. He won his first EWL and PSAC titles and placed seventh at the NCAA Championships becoming Edinboro's first true freshman to earn All-America honors. As a sophomore, Gillespie tallied a 34-2 record, his second EWL title and was named both the EWL and the PSAC Wrestler of the Year on the way to the national title at 149 pounds.  


In 2007-08, Gillespie moved up to 157 pounds, posted a 37-4 record and placed fifth at the NCAA Championships.  He won his third straight EWL title and was named the EWL Tournament Most Outstanding Wrestler, and recorded his second PSAC crown and was named the PSAC Wrestler of the Year for the second consecutive year. As a senior in 2008-09, Gillespie recorded a 41-3 record, was an EWL finalist, captured his third PSAC championship and was named the PSAC Tournament Most Outstanding Wrestler, and placed fourth at the NCAA Championships.  

 
Gillespie finished his collegiate career with a 152-13 record, breaking Jason Robison's Edinboro record for career victories and setting a new mark with a .921 winning percentage. A former Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) representative, Gillespie has a bachelor's degree in individualized studies with a concentration in psychology.
