Jerod Rideout: Class of 2008

As a junior he won his weight class in the prestigious McDonald’s tournament and was named Outstanding Wrestler of the Meet, and he also won the highly-competitive Sanford Redskin Tournament as a sophomore and Noble Tournament as a junior. Jerod was named to the Maine All-State Team and the Maine Sunday Telegram First Team as a sophomore and junior, and as a senior he battled injuries but still managed to win the state final on his home mat in a match that many consider the most exciting  they’ve ever seen at FA.
