Posted 6:38 PM 2/14/2012 : South wrestler is Athlete of the Week
Robert DeHerrera of Pueblo South High School is this week's Loaf ‘N Jug Gatorade Athlete of the Week.
Robert is on the Colts wrestling team and is one tough competitor. The junior won the 4A state title last year as a sophomore. And this season, the 126-pounder is 33-3 this and just came off a win at regionals recently. He says he has a special inspiration.
"My grandparents passed away and I dedicated this whole season to them," said Robert. "They're the reason why I've been pushing myself hard to where I am right now."
Robert will train at the Olympic Training Center next year before wrestling in college in 2013. He also has a 3.6 GPA.
