Sheboygan South senior Trey Klessig has been wrestling since kindergarten and recently wrapped up his fourth year on varsity.
Redwings’ coach Theran Goodale did not have an assistant for most of the season and admits it would have been just about impossible to survive without Klessig.
“This was my first year as head coach, something I have been avoiding because I love wrestling but am not the strongest when it comes to paperwork and the administrative part of it,” Goodale said. “Without being able to have Trey tell the kids what to do when to do it, and how to prepare for every tournament, we would have been lost.”
He was also the quarterback of the football team and plays baseball as well.
Klessig plans to study architecture at UW-Milwaukee.
He is the first athlete from the area to participate in “20 Questions.”
