My name is Bryce Kresho and I am currently a Junior at Cass High School near Cartersville, GA. I started wresting in second grade after hearing about it from my dad who also wrestled when he was growing up. I played baseball and ran cross country in the past but realized wrestling was more motivating to me because of the physical and mental intensity of the sport. I enjoy the challenge of competing in the center of the mat and pushing myself to continue getting better by taking on more difficult opponents.
I believe I would be a good addition to a college wrestling room because I am a dedicated athlete and student. Everything I do ties into improving my performance in the classroom and on the wrestling mat. During quarantine I made sure that I kept next season in mind and worked daily to stay in shape and be prepared for the upcoming year. I continue to focus on a healthy life style, which includes a nutritious diet, to stay healthy throughout this wrestling season. I also am focused on making sure I stay on top of my classwork, completing my homework assignments before practice and during breaks in the school day.
I aim to be the hardest worker in the room and look to lead by example to encourage my teammates to push each other. Nearly every day I stay after to do extra. Sometimes it’s footwork drills and other times it’s a couple extra live goes or drills. During the summer and weekends I go to other rooms to work with top wrestlers in the state to push myself. I feel these attributes would be helpful to a college team.
My main goal for next season is to defend my state title. A longer term goal is to be a three time state winner and to place at Super 32 and other national tournaments. I have achieved the first part of my long term goal of becoming a three timer so I will continue to push myself and put in extra work to achieve the rest of my goal. For one year I would want to see my team win state. We will have a pretty good chance to win my senior year if we play all our cards right. Our goal for this year is to qualify for state as a team. On the academic side of my goals, I plan to continue taking more honors and college credit classes as well as prepare for taking the SAT/ACTs. My academic areas of interest are in biology and physiology and I plan to continue exploring career options in these areas.
