|Johnny O'Hearon takes down an opponent during a match this year.|
It's one thing to be good at what you do. It's another to be the best.
It's also a feather in ones cap when they do it at a very young age.
That is what Carbon Raptor's wrestler Johnny O'Hearon has done. He is the best and he is the youngest.
This year he won the triple crown championship at the age of eight years old. He is the youngest wrestler to every achieve that in the state of Utah.
He did it by competing in five tournaments with wrestlers from 30 different states. Each meet had between 1100 and 3000 young graplers competing.
Because of his record (winning three first places in the tournaments) and his age he will now take his place in the Rocky Mountain Nationals Hall of Fame.
O'Hearon is also the southwestern regional champion and holds the state championship for his third year in a row. He is a champion in Greco/Roman, folkstyle and freestyle wrestling.
After all he has done this year, he has now qualified for the western regional championships in Klamath Falls, Ore.
