He was the gold medalist in the Division A competition and took first place at several other meets this season. “Overall, he had pretty tough opponents all year and still had great success,” said Coach Dan Rice. “Will worked extremely hard and was very dedicated to wrestling over his high school career and his accomplishments show it. He also did this while maintaining a very high GPA and was recently accepted to BYU. I am very proud of him.”

I am very thankful that we had him in the room and that he served as a captain this season.”
