    Whereas, The Ward E. Brown Mental Attitude Award is presented to a senior wrestler at the state finals for excellence in mental attitude, scholarship, leadership, and athletic ability;

    Whereas, J.T.'s career record is 132 - 10, and in his last two years, he was undefeated;

    Whereas, Even though J.T. did not reach his goal of being a four-time state champion, he is pleased with his performance and is being recruited by schools such as Harvard, Stanford, Northern Illinois, Indiana, and Purdue. He plans to study medicine and wrestle for all four years;


    Whereas, In addition to his prowess on the wrestling mat, J.T. excels in the classroom where he maintains a 3.85 grade point average and is an honor student; and
