Wrestlers Honored at Suffolk County Awards Dinner

Posted Friday, April 11, 2014 by Charles Pasqualino
 At the 2014 Suffolk County Awards Dinner two of our wrestlers were honored.  Jake Horton was honored for his All-County placement at 182lbs, and Milton Jara was the recipient of the Rohan Murphy Inspirational Wrestler Award.  Milton's Award is presented to one Suffolk County wrestler who by overcoming obstacles and managing to compete in our sport has inspired his peers, family, coaches and anyone who knows him.  In front of 600 people Coach Anello presented Milton with his award, and he quickly took the microphone and gave an excellent 1-2 minute thank you speech, off the cuff, for which he received a huge standing ovation and may have very well been the highlight of the night.  Milton went on to volunteer to collect for a 50/50 raffle, was given a free ticket for helping, and as fate would have it ended up winning the 50/50.  It was a great night, and the smile you see on his face in the attached picture was there all night.
