Jake Short of Simley is Pioneer Press wrestler of the year
Simley High School senior Jake Short is leaving wrestling.
After this week's state tournament, the nation's top-ranked 152-pounder will wrestle in the Dapper Dan all-star match in Pittsburgh on March 17. Then he's calling it quits and hanging up his singlet.
Until August, anyway.
"I think I need the break and have earned the time off from wrestling," the University of Minnesota recruit said. "I'm a three-sport guy but soon will become a one-sport guy. I want to refresh my body and mind before I hit the mat again in college."
