Our first State Champion

Here’s the article about him. He dominated the defending state champion in the finals. He gave up only three takedowns all year including one in the quarterfinals that nearly gave me a heart attack.

I was present in the interview but I don’t think the guy realized I was one of the coaches because I wasn’t one of the two in the chair

Thanks everyone, now he's excited about wrestling at Senior Nationals. He currently has some NAIA and D3 offers, I'd imagine we will get some more once we start the national circuit

His story made CNN, they filmed some B-Roll with me in the room but for the third time in my life I made the cutting room floor of a national news story. The coach they interviewed, Dean, has been his coach Damoreon's entire career.

He's currently on the verge of signing with Life University but he just started talking to Notre Dame College. John Carroll wanted him bad but I don't think they can offer him the money he needs
