OKLAHOMA CITY —
“Every college in the United State is here to watch him today,” George said. “So they are all watching him and recruiting him. So they see him get beat and that’s hard. You think your life is going to end. But they know what kind of kid he is. He will be just fine.”
Moore’s Derek Silvertsen and the Jaguars John Finn also came up short in the finals. Both of their prep careers have come to an end.
“I just didn’t wrestle my match,” Silvertsen said. “Didn’t do what I planned from the start. It’s been something I dreamed of my whole life. It’s really hard.”
Duffield became the first freshman to ever win a state championship for the Jaguars. He is looking forward duplicating the accomplishment the next three years.
“It feels great,” Duffield said. “Knowing I was the first freshman from Westmoore to ever win it and that I now have the possibility of being a four-time state champion.”
