Working through technique and agility, sophomore Keaton Jarrett wrestled his way into a severe injury. Ending his season slightly prematurely, Jarrett tore his meniscus in his left knee. Not being extremely upset, Jarrett was definitely understanding about it happening.

“It happens. It happens in every sport,” Jarrett said.

After wrestling for seven years, Jarrett dedicates most of his time to wrestling. He helps as often as he can with younger children. Jarrett really does enjoy the sport he has grown up participating in, also attending clubs that focus on specifically on technique.

His favorite part of the sport is just how individual it is. You can be a part of a team, but only compete individually and really just focus on your own efforts.

“You know when you need to work on things,” Jarrett said.

Jarrett also says that it the sport does require extreme dedication. The time of year that the sport takes place in really tests your ability to say no. Having to sometimes go on diets makes the holidays even harder for the sport takes off right before Thanksgiving and ends around Valentine’s Day.

Even with the ups and downs of the extremely demanding sport, Jarrett wouldn’t give it up for anything.
