Another week and another huge tournament to recap. The EOWL brought together some of the best grapplers our area has to offer. A big topic this week is the immediate success that we’ve seen out of multiple freshman this season. The gap between middle school and varsity wrestling seems to be getting less challenging for these athletes. They train all season round, they travel to play high quality competition, and all of that pays off once they get into high school.
This week’s special guest is one of those freshman. Bobby Buchheit of Beaver Local is coming off of back to back winning weekends in the OVAC, and EOWL. He’s been able to beat a handful of top seeds to get to where he is. In this week’s episode he talks about the mentality of his wrestling, what prepares him for the big stage, and much more.
