This week’s High School Wrestler of the Week is Jesse Ybarra of Sunnyside High School in Tucson, Arizona. Ybarra, a junior, competed at the annual Agony In Ames event on the campus of Iowa State and came away with not one, but two victories over ranked opponents. First, the number nine ranked wrestler in the country defeated at 120 pounds defeated 17th ranked Caleb Rathjen 3-1 with a takedown late in the third period. He then went out later in the event and dispatched of #11 (at 113) Jeremiah Reno by a 5-3 scoreline. Ybarra is a 2020 Iowa commit, an Arizona state champion and a 2018 Fargo cadet champion at 120 pounds.
Congratulations to Jesse Ybarra… TOM’s High School Wrestler of the Week
