Born September 1, 2003 in Cary, North Carolina to Andy and Diana Binder. Moved to Wentzville, Missouri, in 2004 and started my wrestling career in First Grade. I lost every little league state championship I was in; however, that did not deter me from getting better. I began traveling the United States competing in national tournaments in an effort to get better.
My mother and father sacrificed a great deal to enroll me in Whitfield School (college prep) located in St Louis. I have attended Whitfield School since 2016, my Seventh Grade year. I currently have a GPA of 3.7 and I take the hardest courses available to me.
In the off-season, you will find me working out and training at least four-days a week and continue to compete throughout the United States. When I am not training, I am active in my church and help my mother hand out food to the needy at a local food pantry.
I am a dedicated student and have won two Missouri High School State Championships at 106 and 113. As of my sophomore year, I am 84-12 in my first two-years of High School wrestling. Under Head Coach Charlie Sherertz, Whitfield School’s varsity wrestling team competes in one of the hardest schedules in the State of Missouri. In 2020, Whitfield School ranked number four in the State of Missouri and defeated nationally ranked #17 Edwardsville, IL, to win the Fox Invitational.
My academic focus in college is in the engineering field.
