Senior wrestler, David Emch, was awarded the Hungry Howies Pay to Play Scholarship for the 2017-2018 winter season. He is a four year member of the Varsity team and has been wrestling for as long as he can remember. This season, his goal is set on placing at the state meet.
When David is not honing his own skills on the mat, you will often find him teaching younger wrestlers techniques and sharing his love of the sport. He said, “I would encourage athletes to try wrestling. It is a great workout. You learn how to win as a team and as an individual.”
He has definitely embraced his senior leadership status. Coach Little said, “David Emch has grown into a solid senior leader on the team. He is consistently one of the hardest workers in the room and provides a great example to his teammates both on and off the mat. It’s great to see his hard work, commitment, and sacrifice be recognized.”
