Aaron Brooks Another High Schooler to take a strong Look at

Out of Hagerstown, MD. I've watch this kid grow in the youth program in MD,WV,Pa. He is the real deal..

Article from Flo Wrestling:

The Maryland high school senior was defeated in the Cadet World Team Trials finals by returning bronze medalist Travis Wittlake. However, after Wittlake couldn't recover from an injury, Brooks took his place on the team and ended up winning the 76kg title on Sept. 10.

"When I found out that I was replacing Travis [Wittlake] I said to myself 'OK, you're getting another chance so you better take advantage of it,'" Brooks said. "After that it was just about training to get ready."

Brooks was fresh off his third title run at Fargo before preparing for Worlds and credits that tournament for helping him prepare, since the Cadet World Championships were wrestled on a two-day format with same-day weigh-ins.

"I feel like Fargo helped me get ready because we wrestle that format all the time," he said. "I have more matches at Fargo and the periods are longer, but that's the only difference. Everything else felt the same once we got started. But I think that it helped all of us actually. It felt a little more normal for us."
