Wrestling will forever be a pride and passion of mine. I love the sport and would love to wrestle in college. I believe that I would be a great addition to a college team and I wish to become a better wrestler through college coaching.

I have wrestled almost my entire life and have competed with the best across the country through the years. I have wrestled in several national tournaments including 2017 Fargo Nationals, 2018 UWW Cadet World Team Trials, and the 2018 Fargo Nationals. I qualified for the Missouri High School State Wrestling Tournament as a freshman at 132 pounds.  As a sophomore I was District Champion and placed 6th at State at 152 pounds. I am working to be the best wrestler in the country and with the help of college coaching I know it can happen.

My future career goal is to design buildings as either an architect or engineer. Finding the right fit of a school that I can wrestle for while earning an architecture or engineering degree is important to me so I can reach both of my goals.
