Wrestler of the Week November 21
Post date: Nov 27, 2013 3:57:53 AM
Wrestler of the Week for November 21 is Grade 11 wrestler Dean Leyland. The 2012/2013 season was one of relative success for Leyland. He was voted the Most Outstanding Male Wrestler at the Vancouver Island High School Championships. However if the first few weeks of the season are any indication Leyland wants to earn some recognition on an even bigger stage this year. Leyland just missed the medal rounds at last year’s BC and National Championships. This year Dean is working like a wrestler possessed to find a way onto those podiums. He doesn’t shy away from more experienced and often bigger opponents in practice. He also got lots of pre-season conditioning in on the Armada Soccer Field. These are just some of the reasons why Dean is an excellent choice for Wrestler of the Week.
