What made you want to try wrestling? In seventh grade the gym teachers brought us into the wrestling room and showed us a video all about the sport. So I figured why not give it a try.
What is it that you love about the sport? It’s both an individual and team sport at the same time. What you do off the mat is directly shown through what you do on the mat.
What are some of the most difficult aspects of it? Cutting weight (something I don’t do), staying healthy through the whole season and some of the practices.
What was the most challenging moment of the season for you? Losing in the quarterfinals of Eastern States to the 1-seed.
What was going through your mind when you had your hand raised as a section champ? I wonder what the Section 1 gear’s going to look like?
How would you describe yourself on the mat? Focused.
And off of the mat? Nice.
When you’re not wrestling, what are you usually up to? Chilling at home, maybe playing some Xbox.
What will be your first meal after wrestling season is over? My diet will stay the same. I just eat whatever I see.
Got any good jokes?
A father tomato and a baby tomato are running around the track
The baby started falling behind
The father ran over to him, stepped on him and said, KETCHUP!
