A Northeast High School senior used a “Single Leg Shot” to wrestle his way to a state championship title.
Allen Moss won the 220-pound weight class Georgia High School Association (GHSA) Class AA State Wrestling Championship last month at the Macon Coliseum. He defeated William Henagen of Lovett High School to take the state crown. He also recently signed a scholarship to play football at the University of the Cumberlands.
Although Allen is gifted athletically and has numerous sports commitments, he does not let that interfere with his schoolwork. He is third in his class while holding a 3.8 GPA. Allen lives with his uncle, Marvin Booze, and Allen attributes his success in school to his uncle.
“That’s pretty much I guess the driving force that allows me to do so well in school,” he said.
