Wrestling community, I really hope you guys can help us with this task weâ€™re about to embark. I am trying to help four California state placers attend any of the two National Tournaments in April. I really hope you can assist us with some financial help to help out send our four wrestlers to wrestle at Flo Nationals or NHSCA. This young man all come from the San Fernando Valley, an urban area with heavy crime problems, about 30 minutes away from Los Angeles. They all have overcome some obstacles in their private life and are all excellent students and role models in their school.
Sergio Mendez (113)
*He was a three time League, Regional, Section and state qualifier. This season he finished fifth in the state tournament. He lost his first round match and won five straight matches in the consolation bracket to take fifth place.
Jonny Parada (126)
*Two time League, Regional, Section and state qualifier. He made history this season by becoming the first state champion in his section and school. Heâ€™s only a junior and will be back next season to try to defend his state tittle.
Ali Naser (132)
*Three time League, Region, Section and state qualifier. He made history becoming his section first two-time state placer. He was a Fargo Greco Roman All-American in 2011, pinning three-time New Jersey state champion Anthony Ashnault in the third place bout. He came to our country at an early age from Russia. In the beginning he had trouble understanding the basic principles of the English language. Now heâ€™s an excellent English speaker with hopes to wrestle in the next level if he gets a chance.
Sohrab Movahedi (182)
*Two time League, Section ,Region and state qualifier. This past weekend he was a takedown away from being a state finalist. He took the eventual state champion into overtime before losing when he shoot in for a double but lost control while performing the move. In this exact moment his High School is about to cut wrestling.
