This weekend senior wrestler Chris Jackson wrestled for LDHS for the 182 lb. class at the State Championship and came in fourth place. He received two visits from Division 1 schools Limestone College and Presbyterian College. 

Being seen by college coaches is important to Jackson.

“I was exited I [will] get to do something I love at the next level,” he said.

On Thursday before the match, Jackson  looked forward to competing.

“[I] feel pretty good about it. First time thing for me, so I’m pretty excited about it,” he said.

Even though Jackson was confident, he still felt slightly nervous.

“A little bit, but nothing I can’t handle,” he said.
