I started wrestling in eighth grade and I haven’t stopped since. I constantly work hard in the room and out of the room with school and other workouts. I love wrestling and that is why I want to take it to a higher level in college. I want to continuously improve so that I am the best and above the rest of my competition. Since I began wrestling I have wrestled year round, competing in out of season tournaments and practices to improve my ability as a wrestler. Wrestling has made me a better man than I could have ever dreamed of and I won’t stop working in the sport because I love it and I want to succeed and do very well in it.
Because I wanted to excel in this sport, I entered the Mile High Wrestling Club to wrestle year round, and I have wrestled there ever since. After my freshman year, I broke my ankle wrestling and I was out from about May to late September. During this time I decided to continue training, so I began training at Bakers Performance Systems to improve my speed, strength, and power in a way specific to wrestlers. I lifted there 5 days a week over summer and I continue to workout there 5 days a week. The goal that I am working towards is to become a Colorado state champion. My hard work ethic, pursuit, and passion for wrestling is helping me achieve this goal. I want to continue my championship goals at the collegiate level next year as well.

Extra Curricular Activities

I’ve participated in over 30 hours of community service to improve the community and help others. I’m always volunteering to help with the wrestling team (both the high school and the youth programs). I have always taken higher level honors classes and I have done very well in advanced placement calculus and chemistry classes.
