There isn’t any place Levi Hill would rather be after school during the winter than in the wrestling room at Seymour High School preparing for his next match.

“This is probably my favorite time of the year because we have eight or nine matches in a week or 10-day period, and we see who is actually fit, who can actually make it,” he said. “On a normal (practice) day, we start out with basic drills, and then we get some running in, but we mostly get our cardio in through our wrestling action.”

Hill, who is beginning his senior season at SHS, said he has been involved with the sport for a long time. His older brother, Cody, was a wrestler, and that is how he became interested in the sport. He started in former coach Dave Urbanski’s club.

“I’ve always been around

wrestling. I basically live it,” he said. “I’ve loved it since I was little, and just to be able to wrestle is one of the best things I think that I can do. I like it because it’s technical and physical and takes endurance, so it’s got all categories of activities in it.”
