Roger "Bronc" McCovey
Nearly every day since he won his second straight state heavyweight wrestling title March 7 in Bakersfield, the Del Norte High senior has been training for the National High School Coaches Association Senior Nationals that run today through Sunday in Virginia Beach, Va.
This includes wrestling with teammates and even coaches during intense practices designed to get him in top shape. He also has been lifting weights religiously and running.
The 18-year-old senior is considered one of the best high school grapplers in the nation and earlier this year was named the top heavyweight in the nation by Connect Wrestling, a national Web site.
McCovey left for Virginia on Wednesday. Seven of the top 13 ranked wrestlers in the country in the heavyweight division are expected to compete.
