Drew Dodson, son of Kip and Koren Dodson, is this week’s Kerr & Co. Realty Athlete of the Week.
He is a freshman at Ravenwood High School and a member of the Wrestling Team. This season, he came in fourth in the regional tournament.
As he recalled how he got into wrestling he said matter-of-factly, “[My] football coach asked me to.”
When asked what inspires him to continue the rigorous training and competition he said, “my teammates and my family.”
One of his biggest role models is Nick Soriano, his favorite professional wrestler. “I love the way he wrestles and the way he acts,” Dodson said.
Dodson describes himself as hardworking, caring and a leader. Outside of wrestling, he enjoys playing video games and other sports just for fun.
Head Wrestling Coach Andrew Tomlinson said of Dodson, “Freshman Drew Dodson has been having a strong campaign so far this season. He currently holds a 17-10 varsity record, and recently placed fourth at the Freshmen Grand Championships.”
Although he is only a freshman, he said he plans to go to college to pursue a career as a dentist after he finishes at RHS.
