“I was a little scared to do some things at first,” Torres said. “The Geary Tournament was tough. I thought I would be in better shape. I started exercising and running conditioning a lot more.”
Now, he will take his talents to the tradition-rich OSU wrestling program.
“I am very excited about going to OSU,” Torres said. “That's a big accomplishment for me.”
Williams called Torres one of the best wrestlers to ever come out of Altus, comparing him to Johnny Powell, a three-time state champ in the 1970s from Altus who wrestled for Nebraska in college.
“He's got that inner stuff,” Williams said of Torres. “Even when the odds are against him, he is going to show them. They (OSU) is getting a good one.”
