Dominic Pridemore is a junior at Millbrook High School. He has been a wrestler for about three years. Two of those years he has spent at Millbrook and the other at James Wood High School. Dominic stated, “I needed to do a sport and chose wrestling because it was the beginning of the season and I wanted to give it a chance.” He soon realized that it was something he would continue to pursue. Dominic’s main goal for this season is to improve his record from last year and try to get a better placement in a tournament.
