I’m currently a senior at Parkway South High School. For college and a career, I am considering studying Business. I began wrestling as a Freshman at Parkway South High School and became addicted. My freshman and sophomore years, I also played football but made the decision not to play football my junior year so I could concentrate on my wrestling skills and spend as much time in the off-season attending wrestling camps and tournaments. I try to encourage younger kids who are interested in wrestling by teaching/coaching wrestling at the middle school with my teammates.
I’m also active in my church youth group traveling on youth mission trips when possible. My work history includes mowing lawns, landscaping, and shoveling snow.
