I am a dedicated wrestler. I have been wrestling since I was in 2nd grade. I am truly passionate about this sport. I work hard and leave it all on the mat every time. My goal is to be able to continue wrestling after high school. When I started wrestling, my coach, John Wilde, started the club and it was small. At that time it wasn't offered at the high schools level. Because of him and his voice to make wrestling happen at Illini West, me and many others have been able to wrestle. Since then John has passed and part of me wants to always be able to honor his memory by wrestling.
