With all his improvement Cason has big goals for this season.

“I really want to qualify for State and also to make sure that I stay focused on my academics, also I really want to place at State and that’s going to be hard, but I just have to put the work in and become a leader in the room, getting as much knowledge as possible to help with confidence, because if you have to wrestle one of the best you can’t be doubting yourself,” said Deyalsingh.
