AOTI: Angel Blanco

By Adam Sarsfield 

Senior Angel Blanco is a three-sport athlete who has gained the recognition of being featured on the Shield due to his hard work, dedication, and resilience. Angel has been wrestling since the sixth grade and considers it his main passion. He loves the competitiveness of the sport the most and the dedication he has to put in to maintain his own career. Last year Angel placed in fourth place overall at the CCS level. Angel has continued to use his motto of “mirror, mirror on the wall, I’ll always get up after I fall, and whether I run, walk, or have to crawl, I’ll set my goals and achieve them all.” With the wrestling season starting again, he has much hope of reaching the same level or better this year.
