Ramon Ramos made Casteel High School history at the 2018 Arizona High School Wrestling Championships.
Ramos, who is just a freshman, became Casteel’s first state wrestling champion since the school opened three years ago.
“I would always go to practice after school,” Ramos told Sports360AZ.com. “If I needed to go to tutoring I would make sure to go in the morning so I wouldn’t miss practice. I would always be there.”
His preparation quickly made him into one of the top wrestlers in the state. The freshman champ finished his season with an undefeated 47-0 record.
Since Casteel has had such a short history, they still do not have a senior class.
Casteel’s hall of fame wrestling coach, Bob Callison, has Ramos for three more years and hopes to earn more championships in the future.
