From the sidelines: Federal Way senior Brennan Garate has been a coach’s dream and the team would not be what it is right now if it were not for the dedication of student-athletes like him. From day one, he has pushed himself to improve and his perfect attendance for all workouts and practices shows his dedication to the sport and his team. The example he sets has shown the younger wrestlers what it takes to be successful both on and off the mat. His hard work and dedication has led to a strong start to his senior season. As the senior captain he has started the season 4-1 with his sole loss taking place in the finals of the Auburn Invitational. Brennan is posed to have a breakout year this year and it is exciting to have a front row seat to it.
