Chace Coopersmith – Wrestling – Rex Putnam HS
In only his second season ever wrestling in his entire life , Chace consistently defeats opponents that have been wrestling for 10 + years even placing in tournaments at the Varsity level. Chace is well on his way to lettering in this sport which at the high school level is the very most difficult sport to qualify for a letter. Chace also holds down a 3.2 GPA and is a Varsity Letterman in football since he was a sophomore as a starter , even being asked to suit up for varsity as a freshman. Please consider Chace for this award as it would mean so much to his confidence and let him know that being a good kid in a world of bad influence is a great thing. Chace is very well deserving of some recognition for his accomplishments.
