In wrestling Don was a District and State qualifier and finished fifth in the state as a Senior. Heidelberg also was a district and state qualifier in track and field.
"Don has been doing a great job during our pre season sessions. He has been making big plays at practice which is normally a good indicator that he will make them in the games. He comes from a strong high school program, performed at a high level in everything he has done thus far. We are very excited to have him on board with us and are expecting a great season from him in 2021"-Director of Operations Paul Pennington.
