He is one of only a few four-time state champions in Maine wrestling history and was also a four-time regional and conference champion. 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 wrestling.com 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. Jerod graduated in 2008 as Foxcroft Academy’s career record holder in wins, pins, takedowns, and technical falls.
