Coach Kevin Leonard on Worthington: “Max is a wrestler that has led by example for our team. He is an extremely hard worker and is willing to do whatever it takes to make himself and the team better. He is everything that you want in a captain. After two close years at regionals, he has really turned the corner his senior year. Every loss drives him to get better and he has his sights set on a podium finish in Kissimmee.”

The Pacesetter feature will be a recurring weekly feature through the end of the season in the second week of March. Have a nomination you’d like us to spotlight? Wrestlers must have exemplary record on the mat and character and sportsmanship off it as well. Drop us a line at with your nomination. Thank you for your support!


I covered wrestling for 15 years up north and "retired" in 2011. But as I thought I had in 1992, I couldn't stay away. Started Northeast Florida Matmen in 2013, Northwest Florida Matmen in 2015. New initiative this year is to create a space on my sites where ALL Florida results can be stored, searched, reviewed and used by my readers, with NO COST TO THEM.
