Dolan and Blaylock have spent the last three years working out with each other every day. For them, this was more than just an individual accomplishment. Both believe they couldn't have gotten it done without each other.

“Having someone like Davey to always push you in the wrestling room leaves you with no choice but to get better,” Blaylock said. “It's probably a lot of what got me this state title.”

Dolan is happy to see Blaylock finally win the state championship he's worked so hard for, but he also believes Blaylock played a key role in his own success.

“Jonce has pushed me every day and he probably works harder than I do,” Dolan said. “I'm so glad he finally broke through and got his title.”

“I've been working out with him every day since my sophomore year. If it hadn't been for him, I don't know if I would've got this done.”
