St.Clairsville coach Joel Sansone says Skaggs who placed each of the last two years has evolved as a wrestler.

Sansone said, ” Then something changed over the summer, when he came in this year he was just ready to go from the get go. He was a leader in the room, leaves here and goes to the weight room everyday just works so hard big things are coming for him.”


Skaggs added, ” We practice all week and we grind all the time 24/7 and right after practice I go to the gym and get a nice lift in so I can get big for my weight class there’s some big boys I got to hang in there with them. I just kept my cool I wasn’t just going to sit back and win by just a couple points I wanted to get the fall, get the five pins.”
