The Gazette Preps Peak Performer of the Week: KJ Kearns, Coronado wrestling

Mon, Jan 16, 2017 - 6:14 PM

The best wrestlers not only put in more gym time to be the strongest physically, but they also gain a psychological advantage over their opponents.

Coronado's KJ Kearns has shown that he has the skills to be one of the best wrestlers in the state at 138 pounds, and he's doing it with a style that is leaving both opponents and practice partners scratching their heads.

Kearns won his weight class at the Arvada West Invitational, one of the toughest regular-season meets of the season.

"I would describe my style as 'funky,'" Kearns said. "I can pull a move out of nowhere and make it work for me, even if it's something that nobody else would try. I wrestled my style and didn't let my opponents do what they wanted.
