A year after his brother did so, Northside Christian’s Dalton Dennis won a state title. In fact, he was the county’s only wrestler to win a state championship.


A year after his brother did so, Northside Christian’s Dalton Dennis won a state title. In fact, he was the county’s only wrestler to win a state championship.

Wrestler of the Year | Dalton Dennis, Jr., Northside Christian, 45-2

After finishing fourth last season, Dennis vowed to win a state title at 125 pounds. He accomplished that in dominating fashion, cruising through his class during the regular season then beating Green Cove Springs Clay's Josh McLeod 7-0 in the Class A championship. Dennis was the county's only state champion.

Most impressive accomplishment: Not only was Dennis undefeated against state wrestlers this season, he did not allow a takedown.

Did you know? Dennis' older brother, Dillon, won a state title for the Mustangs at 140 pounds last season.
