Hang on for a minute...we're trying to find some more stories you might like.


The start of my Senior year wasn’t the way I had planned for most of high school.  I had torn my ACL the spring before and had to miss out playing my Senior football season. I still enjoyed supporting the team on their successful season as I continued to recover in rehab. Wrestling season came around and I was cleared to wrestle just in time for the first tournament. I came back a little rusty but managed to pull off third place.  I continued improving and feeling much more confident with my recovery, and only lost a handful of times. I placed second at both districts and regionals and finally accomplished my goal of qualifying for the state tournament.  I came in a bit intimidated of the competition but wrestled hard every match, and defying all odds placed third in the state. It was a great ending to my wrestling and high school athletic career! I will now be graduating with a 4.2 GPA and in the fall will be attending the University of Central Florida.  I will be pursuing a degree in aerospace engineering and look forward for what the future has in store for me!
