Congratulations to Sammy Colbray for being Hermiston High School's

Sammy went on to take 5th in Freestyle and is now a 2X All American!!!! Great Job Sammy
In addition Tyler Berger took 4th

He is now a 2X All American!
Tyler spent most of his summer training with the Best of the Best. First, he trained in California with All American and movie star Nate Parker. He then continued onto camp in Clackamas Oregon to train for the camp in Colorado Springs, CO at the Olympic Training Center.
One week at the OTC was intense with the extreme altitude. But, after the regular campers left he spent another week living with and training side by side with current and future Olympians.
Check out his Facebook page after he gets back from South Africa with the Oregon Cultural Exchange team for all the great pictures with Rulon Gardner,
Dan Gable, Jordon Burroughs and many more!
Last but not least Hermiston had
3 wrestlers and 1 Coach
