From the sideline: Roman embraces each of our four pillars of success: honor, commitment, discipline and courage. Roman’s hard work and coachability makes him the ideal wrestler and teammate. At TJHS, the wrestlers elect their captains, and Roman was chosen to be one of our co-captains because he is a natural leader who leads by example. I can confidently say that no other wrestler works harder in or out of the practice room than Roman. He embraces fully our mantra of being “all in, all the time,” regardless of the challenge before him. Roman placed sixth at the Doc Herren Tournament in Auburn, finished third at the Auburn High School Invite, and he won the Gator Invitational at Decatur High School. Roman has a season record of 14-6, with eight of those wins coming by way of pin. Roman maintains a 3.7 GPA, and upon graduation, he plans to attend Central Washington University; eventually, Roman would like to go to flight school to become a pilot.
