Each new wrestling season brings a new crop of wrestlers to the high school scene. Last year’s Freshman class had a lot of hype and lived up to it. This year’s class is going to be tough as well, with several kids who will be immediate difference makers on their teams and on the State level. They bring with them numerous championships from their time on the youth circuit and will now be challenging opponents at the next level.
