Silver Knights Mat Man Honored
The Tyler Star News Athlete of the Week for February 12, 2020, is Tyler Consolidated Wrestler Chance Johnson. Chance has been wrestling since middle school.
He is now a junior wrestler for the Silver Knights and has improved from a single digit win total last season to having a winning record this season at 19-16 heading into the LKC’s and Regionals.
Chance works very hard and has a positive influence on the team which has translated onto the mat making him a better wrestler.
He recently took sixth place at the WV Single A challenge held at Ritchie County. Chance has used the sport to not only improve his skill but to make him a better person.
His attitude is now one of the best you’ll find amoung high school athletes.
We wish him the best in the upcoming meets and hope he stays strong and improves even more on his record.
He is just on in a bunch of hard working wrestlers at the local schools and we hope to feature more of them as we get the information we need.
