As a young kid he didn’t even want to wrestle. Now he is preparing for his senior season and a run at a third straight state championship. Sibley East 195 pounder, Nathan Rose, went from nervous about even participating in the sport to one of the best high school wrestlers, not only in Minnesota, but in the nation.
“My brothers both wrestled, but I didn’t want to,” said Rose. “I thought I was going to hurt somebody. I thought it was like WWE, but they talked me into it one year.”
Rose, who started wrestling in kindergarten, had success right away. His first year he was second in the NYWA, then two years later he started a run of three straight titles.
“When I was young I only lost a handful of times.”
