It was a treat to see him. And I'm glad that I did.
I don't know when he found time to study, but he was always eligible.
I think a small part of him doesn't want to hurt anybody. But when he gets some guy wrenching on his neck, you can see something snap in him.
He went through a lull. I think a lot of it had to do with confidence. But his win over Santa Cruz's Guerrero Villarreal showed a lot of promise. It was a guy who beat him. Derek's ready for the challenge.
Dustin has been a driven man this year. His work ethic seems to be a little better at the league workouts. He really looks motivated. He may not just go to state, this could be the year he places.
We pulled the same thing off two years ago.
He set the goal of winning a league title his junior year and he was very, very dedicated to his team. His sense of loyalty was unmatched. I've been coaching high school wrestling for 22 years over three states, and I've never come across anybody with the same competitive nature as Chris.
