Athlete of the Week    Austin Voss | Senior & Co-captaion | Mora Wrestling

From the Coach: "Austin is everything that embodies a student athlete. He is a good person and a good athlete, he leads by example and is very deserving of being athlete of the week. He walks the walk and talks the talk and is good for the program. He has only been in wrestling for two years and has a very good chance of going to state as an individual and with the team. He is amongst a very impressive group of young men who have made 100 takedowns and in a much shorter time period." Head Coach Tom Youngbloom.

Favorite thing about sports: I like the life lessons it teaches and it is a fun thing to do after school.

Person who has influenced you: Coach Tom Youngblom, he pushes everyone to work harder, it teaches us to work harder in everything else in life and to be successful.

How do you prepare for a meet?: I work to keep my weight down so I can make the weight I need to be at, I work out every morning, I eat healthy light foods. The day of a meet I get in a good workout and listen to music to get my energy up.

Highlight of athletic career: Reaching 100 takedowns this season.

Future goals: Going to state as an individual and as a team, and making the top 10 in takedowns at school. After graduation going to college or working in construction.
