Athlete of the Week, Bryce Lynn

DUBUQUE (KWWL) -- Bryce Lynn has his sight set on becoming the first ever Dubuque Senior four time state qualifier.  The Ram junior is already half-way to reaching that goal.

Bryce is a second year captain on the Ram wrestling team, was named 2nd team all-MVC last season, and has reached the podium at the state meet in both his freshman and sophomore seasons.

As a junior he leads the team both on and off the mat.  Coach Joe Connolly says his attitude, work ethic, and passion for the sport help motivate his teammates. Something he doesn't take lightly.

"I know how to work hard and make sure everyone else is working hard around me," says Bryce, "We have a lot of young talent this year and I think it's important to step up and make sure everybody stays on task and see what we can do with the young talent."

"We expect a lot of things out of him," adds Connely, "He's living up to it.  He really works hard.  He's never missing.  It's awesome to have him around."
