Wrestler of the Week
The 2014-2015 season will be lead by new captains Travis Deegan and Vaughn Johnson and returning captain Colten Carlson. Each wrestler brings an important leadership quality to our wrestling room.
Travis Deegan - Senior Captain
Travis will be entering his first year as a team captain. Travis is currently nearing 100 victories over his career and looks to accomplish his goal of placing at the state tournament after coming up just short his junior year. He is a 2x state entrant and near the top of his class in overall GPA.
Vaughn Johnson - Senior Captain
Vaughn Johnson is also entering his senior year as a 1st time team captain. Vaughn's hard work and dedication to weight training has been a huge part of his success as a wrestler. After not coming out for wrestling until 9th grade he has found his way to the state tournament twice as an individual, coming up just short of the podium his junior year. Like Deegan, he looks to accomplishing his goal of placing at the state tournament.
Colten Carlson - Junior Captain
Colten as a junior is the most decorated of the three captains. Colten completed his sophmore year with a 42-4 record making his 3rd trip to the Minnesota State Wrestling tournament. Colten leads by his strong work ethic in the wrestling room and outside of the room. Colten nears the top of his class in overall GPA and takes a lot of pride in helping the ever growing Willmar Youth Wrestling program. Amongst his many wrestling goals will be to get back on top of the podium and become the winningest wrestler in the history of Willmar Wrestling.
