Dylan Peters: Athlete of the Week

Posted:

DENVER (KWWL) - He may be small in stature but Dylan Peters of Denver-Tripoli is nearly flawless on the mate. As a Freshmen, Peters rolled off 40 straight victories before suffering and 8-4 defeat; finishing runner up at the state championship. Using that one lose as motivation Peters went 51-0 en route to his first state title a year ago.

"He's always been a hammer for us he's a hard working kid. Always giving it his all in practice and in matches, all areas, just a real asset to the team." Says Titan Head Coach Chris Krueger.

But after 2 years of wrestling at 103 pounds Peters has made the move to 112 pounds this year and hasn't missed a beat jumping out to a 36-0 record. The 112 pound junior has drawn interest from the likes of powerhouse Iowa, Nebraska, and UNI and has the Titans ranked number 1 in the state.

Dylan Peters says, "To have the competition we do in the room it helps a lot."
