Years Involved in Wrestling
I have been wrestling since I was very young. Due to my dad coaching a little league team and assisting on the High School team, I grew up in a wrestling room. I spent more time being coached by Nick Purler then anyone else. I have been associated with PWA since I was 8 years old. I have been a year-round wrestler since middle school when I decided wrestling was more important than football.
Accomplishments to Date

I am a returning Missouri State Champion at 170 and was a runner up my sophomore year at 160. I finished 7that the 2017 Kansas City Stampede at 170.  After my freshman year I have wrestled my natural weight unless I wrestled in national tournaments.  I have accumulated 134 wins, which 90 of them have been by pin.  I have earned All American status twice during my high school career.  Once at Virginia Beach High School Nationals, 8thplace 160 Sophomore Division and the 2017 All-Star Disney Duals while wrestling for Team Missouri at 160 going 9-1 with 8 pins.
