WRESTLING

Logan Campbell/Coxsackie-Athens

Q: How did you fall in love with your sport?

A: While wrestling allowed me to succeed individually, it also provided a team that was like a family and coaches that really drove me.

Q: What’s your favorite moment as an athlete in that sport?

A: My favorite moment was winning a Section II championship. It was always a dream as a young kid and I worked hard and made it happen and then went on to place eighth in the state.

Q: What is your favorite sports moment as a fan?

A: My favorite moment as a fan would be when I made friends with another wrestler at Fargo. He made the finals and went out and tech falled his opponent within the first minute of the match.

Q: What athlete do you look up to the most and why?

A: I look up to myself so I can keep pushing myself to do better and so I can be confident in myself.

Q: Best advice you’ve received from a coach, mentor or teammate in your sport?

A: I think the best advice would have to be from a kid who ended up quitting the next day. In practice, I told him I looked up to him and that I wanted to be like him. He responded, ‘you will never be good until you start looking up to yourself and believing you’re the best.’
